What LEGO set did you build today?

Recommended Posts

40198 Lego LUDO Game

This came with a dark gray 32x32 baseplate that you frame out as shown in the instructions in the picture and there are 4 separate 16x16 plate builds that come together to form the game board.  The spinner is printed which was cool to see.

The spinner spins very nicely when flicked (between 4 - 6 rotations on a decent flick).  Not sure what else the 1-6 circle plate would be good for in a MOC.  Wheel of fortune MOC?

Regarding minifigures, 16 are included.  The pants/legs were identical within each color group.  Each group had two male, two female.  Red has no alternate faces.  Blue the female has alternate.  Yellow the female has alternate.  Green both male and female have alternates.  The green male alternate is a "I'm going to puke" face (fat cheeks) which is amusement park-ready but not sure it fits in this game (unless he's been riding the spinner lately, then I get it).

My daughter and I now call this the Lego Seasons game, which sound much more fun than Ludo.  I'm not familiar with Ludo but the setup and rules remind me of Parcheesi.  The rules are also similar to games like Sorry, Trouble, etc.  Get a number to go out of your color zone (six), move around the board back to your safe zone.  First to get all minifigs back safe wins.

We havent played it yet but will later today.  Overall decent value for the $27.99 sale price given 16 minifigs, a dark gray 32 x 32 baseplate, 4 of 16x16 plates, and a cool spinner.

Ludo is a simpler derivative of the Indian game Pachisi (westernized as Parcheesi) and the board games you mentioned between Sorry!, Trouble, and Aggravation are themselves based off Ludo. In other words you are correct about this being reminiscent to Parcheesi as that basically what the LEGO game build here is.

I built an MOC I designed a few years back, but just never got around to doing. I call it the Winter River. It is built on a MILS plate design.

I have a second plate that will go in front of it, called Winter Lake. It will be a frozen pond for ice skating and hockey.

Both of these will be for the Winter Village. I finally will start having some plates for the builds to live on.

The pics show the different stages - first pics show the “before” the frozen river is added. Next shows the frozen river. And finally, the stone bridge across the river.
