So I opened my Lego delivery box this morning, and there is a small die shaped pamphlet in the box...Lego's new customizable die for the Spring 2010 games line-up. The pamphlet showcases 5 games: Minotaurus, Pirate Code, Creationary, Lava Dragon, and Monster 4. It also points the reader to http://games.lego.com to view in slightly greater detail those products, as well as their Build-Play-Change philosophy for their games.

I am really looking forward to a few of these products. The customizable gameplay looks like it'll be sweet with the DIY-die, not that I don't already do this with my existing 'non-Lego' games.

I'm a Lego enthusiast anyway, so even if I'm not crazy about how the games play as-is, I can rework them, and at the very least, I'll have the bits and the di(c)e.

Forget stocks, invest in plastic!

Minotaurus at least looks like Minotaur as a Lego game. Pirate Code looks like a multi-player Mastermind.

Anyone know what the others are based on?

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

I've got a couple of these and the best thing about them is the dice. Lego Creationary is fun in a Pictionary-for-Lego-fans way.

Creationary is very much based on Pictionary - pick a category card, then one person draws/builds what is on the card while others guess. And it's no bad thing for being based on a formula that works.

Great news! I have seen those in Germany when I went to Essen 2009 and those games look awesome!

I just hope the price in the US won't be as high as it was in Germany (about 30 Euro if I remember well).

I included the prices for the games and details on the new Hogwarts title in one of my 2010 NY Toy Fair reports on BoardgameNews.com.

Prices are not as terrible as they could be.

Thanks for the link, Eric.

The prices do seem low enough, although I am surprised that 'Monster 4' is only $15. I realize it's a small amount of bits in general, but detailed minifig parts, in this case heads, usually drives the price up.

The Hogwarts game looks adorable for the young 'uns.
