How to Play the Lego Game Minotaurus

The simple steps and official rules for the game

Lego Minotaurus is simple to set up and even easier to play. Here are the basics.

  1. Build the game board using the included instructions to arrange the walls, hedges, and special colored spaces on the square green base.
  2. Build the special Lego Dice by attaching the six side panels as shown in the instructions.
  3. Take turns choosing a colored team of heroes.
  4. On your turn, roll the dice and make your moves as follows:
    • If you roll a number, move one of your hero pieces that number of spaces to work your way to the center of the board
    • If you roll the gray panel, move a gray piece of labyrinth wall to either clear your way or block an opponent
    • If you roll the Minotaur side, move the Minotaur 8 spaces. If you can get the Minotaur to reach an opponent's hero piece, send it back to the start!
  5. Continue taking turns and working your way to the secret temple in the center of the board.
  6. The first player to get one (if playing with 3-4 players) or two (when playing with 2 players) of their 3 heroes to the center wins!

Change the Rules to Create Your Own Game

How to tweak the rules to Lego Games Minotaurus

In the instructions for Minotaurus you'll find several suggestions for ways to change the rules to make the game more challenging or just to add a little variety to the gameplay.

  • Change the Dice and Jump the Hedges
    You'll build the special Lego Dice yourself with interchangeable panels for the sides. In this variation, remove one of the numbered sides and replace it with the green panel. When you roll green, your hero game piece can jump right over a hedge for a shortcut through the labyrinth!
  • Design Your Own Custom Labyrinth
    Tired of the using the labyrinth pattern you were instructed to build for the game board? Mix it up! Arrange the walls and hedges any way you want to keep things interesting or to make the path more difficult for the ultimate challenge. You can even add some of your own Lego bricks and make up new rules for how they'll work.
  • Extend the Game with a Harder Challenge
    The official rules call for each player to get one or two (depending on the number of players) of their three hero pieces to the secret temple to win. For a longer, more challenging game, change the rules to make the winner get all three heroes to the center before a winner is declared.
  • Make the Mighty Minotaur Mightier
    In the basic rules, you can move the Minotaur 8 spaces in an attempt to send an opponent back to the start. In this variation, you decide what the Minotaur can do when you roll his special side of the dice. Maybe your Minotaur will move fewer spaces, or jump hedges, or knock down walls!
