A very fun game, with free rules from Steve Jackson, that makes me wish I had a ton of lego pirate ships.

Great game -- and a very inspiring wee idea, from right here on the Geek, for a home-made reprint. Grrrr -- since Chessex are refusing to make it themselves...

My mate apparently has lots of LEGO, so he may very well make this himself.

Just stumbled across this. According to the description right here on the geek, the game is played with specially-assembled lego frogs and lego frog rakes. (No image available.) I have Chief Herman's Holiday Fun Pack, and I have legos, so really no excuse to not give this a shot.

I was at ToysRUs last night and noticed that they had a building set line that were big mechs and I remembered coming across this game. I've never played it though so I don't if it is any good. If anyone has some positive feedback I'm sure I'll be back at ToysRUs later tonight.

Dice towers! What self-respecting Lego game that utilizes rolled randomizers doesn't need one of these? Peruse the pics of the Misc. Game Accessory and you can see all the many variants.

Self-Loading LEGO Dice Tower

This is version 1 of an idea that I've had for a while now. Not sure if there's a practical use or not. Go to Ooine.com for a video of the dice tower in action!
