LEGO 40161 Review: What I? Lego

There’s no mentioning of pricing but it does have 536 pieces so it’s a fairly medium-sized set but yet portable. Of course you can customize it with your own minifigures for more play value.

Looks like you get about 16 minifigures in this set, plus a couple of smaller builds!

It looks like a pretty fun game for younger kids, and with the potential of using your own minifigure collection to mix things up, should provide plenty of replay value.

I expect this set to be released in the second half of 2016 , which is approaching very very soon!

Lego may put themselves in a situation where they are damned if they do, damned if they don’t.Make the characters too generic…yellow heads, black eyes, etc and they are criticized for lack of diversity. Differentiate them by skin colour, etc and they will be criticized for encouraging kids to make choices based on superficial racial differences.

I don’t really see the point, even the pic of the kids on the box looks ‘dated’. Like you could put together a superhero themed game. In the original game each player starts with a board that includes cartoon images of 24 people and their first names, with all the images standing up. Each player selects a card of their choice from a separate pile of cards containing the same 24 images.

The object of the game is to be the first to determine which card one’s opponent has selected. Well-crafted questions allow players to eliminate one or more possible cards. The game is fun to play as it is simple, but also requires some thinking and strategy. An interesting twist though is that only eight of those pieces are minifigs, the rest are small builds (same for both players). This may make it more accessible for younger children, but older kids could get bored as they are not challenged enough. One way to make the game more interesting is to change up the playing pieces by adding your own minifigs, or by completely switching out to small builds instead of minifigs. This could make the guessing more challenging. Just remember that both sides will have to have the exact same playing pieces. And could also make the boards larger to accommodate more playing pieces. This is a huge plus, especially if you want to keep entertained creative and restless children who are always looking for something new.

We played it a few times and put it away. The game does go fast because there are so few pieces but it’s still a nice addition to our game library. My nieces and nephews play with it constantly when they visit. It is a very innovative and fully customizable set.
