3852 Sunblock

Name: Sunblock
Theme: LEGO Games
Year: 2011
Pieces: 80
Price: 12.00€

Brickset
LEGO.com

Objectives

The aim of this game is to be the last person on the beach. Through the data is possible to move the chairs, the rubbish bins, and parasols.
When an opponent put the trash bin beside the beach chair from another player, this has to remove the chair and put it elsewhere. If the player lay down some parasol, trash bin, or another chair, loses the game. If you have no place to put your beach chair, you lose the game.

The box

Starting with the box:

Front

The design is quite attractive. It was the first set that caught my attention when I bought it.

Here is an approximate plan of the box.

At the bottom left is the age group that are intended to play, the number of people who can play, and time of each game.

How to play

Summer's here and you've found the perfect spot on the beach, but so has everyone else! Move the sunshades and rubbish bins to make the other go home. The last person on the beach wins!

There are 4 different sunshades:

The big sunshade
Posted Image


The yellow sunshade
Posted Image


The red sunshade
Posted Image


The blue sunshade
Posted Image


The different items
Posted Image

If you role a yellow, red or blue you take the sunshade matching the colour you rolled and place ir firmly onto an empty beach space so that it stands up straight.

If you role the big sunshade you move it to a different position on the beach.

If you role a brown you move your beach chair to a different position on the beach. You may not place your chair side-to-side with another chair, and may not place next to a rubbish bin.

If you role a orange, you move any rubbish bin to a different position on the beach. You must place the bin firmly onto an empty beach space. If there are now any beach chairs on any of the eight spaces around the rubbish bin those players must immediately move their chairs to a different positions on the beach.

If you knock anything off the beach, cannot place or move an item on your turn, you are out of the game

Summary

Playability: 9/10 - It was really fun to play Sunblock. I played three times in a row and does not bother me at all. Quite fun and gave a little laugh. I've only played against one person. With four people at a time should be the best.

Price: 10/10 - Cheap and very fun game. Beyond that, it contains 80 pieces and a crab. € 0.15 per piece. :laugh:

Final: 9/10 - Very fun game, but each game takes no more than 15 minutes. Good to pass the time, and spend a good bit laughing.


Note: If the pictures are too big, a moderator please edit, or tell me how to.

Thanks for this review. I see we get a new crow bar instead of the old wrench, and I like those umbrella pieces. Mind showing us how this game is played?

Yes, sure. Tomorrow I will take photos to explain, ok? Now it's night here, and the photos would be bad.

That's one pretty good looking review.  The set looks okay too, I do like the addition of the crowbar instead of wrench.  I like printed umbrellas.   :thumbup:

Thanks for the look, though this game is probably my lowest priority out of the five Wave 4 ones. The parts list doesn't excite me much. Still, I'll end up getting it anyway.

Thanks for the excellent review The Player, the game looks fun but doesn't seem to have any really useful pieces so I think I'll skip this one.

Thanks for adding gameplay. It's a pretty simple concept, people are afraid of stinky trash so they run away :tongue:

Nice review.

Kids got this game last saturday at a lower price (7 euro), nice.

Only played it once (busy busy weekend) so far with our 4 year old son. Was fun to do. Nice, clean and quick gameplay.

I like the Lego games we have collected thus far (shave a sheep, robo champ, magikus, race3000 and now sunblock).

Shave a Sheep is most family fun but the others go well. Magikus is our daughters favourite.

Nice review, thanks. I don't like the actual games themselves as they are made for children. The gameplay with any of them is quite simple but some of the parts included make them irresistible. I have bought a few on clearance for the parts and wouldn't mind having this one too but I wouldn't pay full price.
