Review: Mega Bloks Domino Build Game







My kids recently played with a new board game, Mega Bloks Domino Build. Both of my boys loved this game, I mean they really truly loved it, though for different reasons. Did you think there was a touch of surprise in my voice there? You would have thought right.

I fully expected my 4-year-old to enjoy the game, but  I also expected my 6-year-old to be quite a bit less enthusiastic about the game.


Actually, it turned out to be just the opposite.


My first grader wanted to play Domino Build over and over again that first day, and still loves playing it whenever he gets the chance.

My four year old loves to play with the large building pieces but is not nearly as interested in playing the actual game.


Mega Bloks Domino Build is pretty easy for my six-year-old to play. Which is precisely why I thought he would be less interested in it. Turns out, this is precisely why he loves playing it! Which brings me to my other thought about this particular board game: it seems whoever goes first almost always wins. Thus, the smarty-pants big brother can always convince his little brother to go second. And you know how that game ends, right?


Domino Build helps both my kids have fun while working on their numbers, colors, and matching skills.

My first grader just laughs and smiles so much every time he plays it. I think he really feels confident playing it just because he so fully understands it. Plus, it never hurts to reinforce building patterns, numbers, and even good sportsmanship at any age!


 Domino Build Game includes:
  • 4 block builds
  • 11 zoo animals featured on dominos
  • Includes: 16 maxi bloks, 30 domino tiles, and 1 instruction sheet
  • 2-4 players


Final thoughts: I do absolutely believe that  for pre-schoolers and on up through six-year-olds, this is a fun game with educational aspects that is well worth the purchase ($10.99 @ Amazon)
