LEGO Coordinates Game!


This is a quick and fun game to play with your LEGO lovers! It is also a great way to introduce the concept of coordinates.

What you need:
  • 15-20 of the same piece per color (we chose square)
  • Printable game board (download the pdf file or print the image below)
  • Dice, 2 (I used small wooden cubes): Label one with the letters A-F, and the other 1-6
Rules of play:

Roll the dice. Find the coordinate and place a brick in that square.
Get 4 in a row first to win (3 in a row for younger kids)! The pieces can be across, up and down, or diagonal. If you roll a coordinate you already rolled, skip your turn (or roll again, you decide which rules you like better).
The thing I love about this game is that if a space is occupied, you can just stack your piece on the piece that is already there! Red just won in the picture below:


Getting started.
