"We bought this LEGO version of "Aeroplane chess" for our 4.5 year old son since he started to show an interest for board games (and he is a BIG Lego fan).
I had to complete most of the build for him as he described it as "too boring" (likely because there are lots of repeats on the game board, lol) no problem, I enjoyed building the game board. My son built all the Lego minifigures. Then we started playing our first game and he had so much fun!
We now play this game at least 2 or 3 times a week. Sometimes during or after a regular game, my son plays with the minifigures or invents his own games or stories. I am so glad that this set is getting so much repeated use, unlike many of our regular Lego sets.
It's fun and educational for the littles, and good childhood memories for us parents. I have since bought a few more sets as gifts since I think all my friends' kids will enjoy this game :)
