How to Make a LEGO Game Board

Building your own game board from LEGO and creating the rules yourself is a great way to spend a long winter day. Gabe and Noah (my 11 and 9 year old boys) are guest-posting today with an eye-witness account of just how fun it is and they’ve included step-by-step instructions for how to build and play a game they created last week.

  • Β Take a large flat square for the base.
  • Arrange Lego pieces of different sizes and colors in a pattern that makes a path. Choose a place to begin and a place to end.
  • Use mini-figures and accessories to make your traps and special squares.

  • It is a good idea to write down the rules of your game, to explain and remember what each space means and what you have to do to win the game.
  • Create mini-figure game pieces for players to move around the board.
  • Use a die or a spinner to tell players how many spaces to move on each turn.
  • Play the game and have fun!

When we first had the idea to build a game, we thought it would be really hard. Once we got started it was a lot easier than we thought. It was a lot of fun dreaming up was to ‘catch’ the mini-figure players. It was also a lot of fun to create new mini-figures to play with. We hope you will take time to build your own LEGO Board Game. If you do, let us know how it turned out and what ideas you used in yours! You can find more ideas for LEGO and other fun game ideas you should check out Mom’s Kid Fun Board on Pinterest.

  5. I remember making board games when I was younger and it was so much fun. Thank you for sharing and linking up with us at the #WWDParty. I hope you have a wonderful week.

    • Making up our own board games means we get to much up our own rules,right, Antoinette? Fun to know others do the same! Blessings πŸ™‚

  6. That is absolutely brilliant! My grandkids and I have enjoyed a couple of the LEGO games but they were also kinda small and had a couple of irritating rules. We never thought of making our own. I wish I’d thought of this a year or two ago when they were more into LEGOs (Minecraft keeps them busy now along with the card games I can often entice them to play with me). I’m going to share this idea with them and see if I can generate some interest in this as well. Thank you! πŸ™‚

    • Building their own game board with LEGO and making up their own rules just might spark their interest, Kaye. We haven’t played minecraft, but we do enjoy card games. Variety makes it all more fun, I think. I hope you get plenty of game-playing time!

  7. Great idea! Def pinning this to my Lego Pinterest board!

  8. I love this. My two little boys have been driving me crazy with cabin fever. I think we just may do this tomorrow when they start acting crazy again. Thank you so much for this idea.

  9. What a fun idea! Thanks so much for sharing this!

  10. Such a cute and fun idea! My boys love Legos and we have lots of pieces and characters lying around that we could do this with. Pinned.
