Those closest to me know I’m a board game freak. I’m always on the lookout for the next great board game, or one I can play with friends, or play and simultaneously drink beers to. It’s a competitive thing, I think. I hate losing, but I love the challenge even more of proving my worth against other people. Clue, Monopoly, Life, Chutes and Ladders, et al. Doesn’t matter. When I sit down to play a board game it’s to win. And yes, one of the most shameful moments of my life is when I refused to let a five-year-old girl, with Cystic Fibrosis, cheat at Candy Land.
So, you can imagine how excited I was to discover Creationary, which is Pictionary with Legos and a health dose of awesome.
You can build dinosaurs, gas pumps, and everything in between. It comes with 96 cards, a buildable LEGO dice, minifigure, microfigure, and a rule booklet.The idea is to let your imagination run wild, and be able to make it tangible. There are three levels of difficulty, so that all ages can play.
It’s only $35, which may seem a lot to drop on a board game. But. When you consider this is a game that can be played with little kids or during family game night or even with your friends while drinking beers and listening to tunes, it seems like a downright bargain.
