Lego Seems to be Back at Board Games, as Ludo is Spotted in the Wild

From what I recall this was met fairly well, but in recent years we haven't seen much of that. There's the Iconic Chess Set that went on sale last year and the Guess Who clone that just got discontinued, but that's about it. If you miss the blend of Lego and table-top gaming, there's good news because someone's spotted Lego Ludo in the wild. Read More >>

Lego’s Newest Sub-Site is Teasing the Upcoming Overwatch Range

Back in May Activision confirmed that as part of its push to develop Overwatch-themed toys, it was partnering with the Lego Company to create brickified versions of Blizzard's strangely-popular multiplayer shooter.

With Some Clever Engineering, This Guy Made a Supersized Lego Helicopter Actually Fly

The New RC Lego Batmobile Is Your Puppy’s Worst Nightmare

Lego Roller Coaster Review: Seriously Big Fun

I was almost dreading putting together the Lego Roller Coaster. Not because it didn’t look really cool – because by god, it did – but because of the sheer size of it. It’s absolutely huge. I was all ready to write about how it’s a great set to build but unless you have a ridiculous amount of space in your house then don’t bother buying it. And that’s still kind of true. But after finishing building it, and playing with the thing, I absolutely love it. Yes, it may be half a metre tall and the best part of a metre wide, but damn it, I will find somewhere for it to live without having to dismantle it. The Lego Roller Coaster might just be the most fun set I’ve built to date. Read More >>
