"Civilizations and Empires" Level 9: The World Builds Anew - The Infinitely Modular Classical Temple Building Set

"Infinite are the wonders of this world, but none so astounding as humankind itself." 
- Sophocles

Ultimately, this set will create 7 different temple models in total. That starts with three Greek models: The Oracle of Delphi representing Archaic Greece, The Parthenon of Athens representing Classical Greece, and the Halls of Olympus representing Mythological Greece. Plus three Roman models: The Forum of the Old Republic representing Early Rome, the Forum of Trajan representing Classical Rome, and the Pantheon of Rome representing the Imperial Age. Plus a model paying tribute to the Renaissance and the Age of Enlightenment for the first time in an official Lego set. The world is yours!!

As a bonus, it is also very easy to add instructions to create smaller versions of each of the main temples, simply by truncating them neatly at a certain point behind the facade to create a partial version. This will be a benefit to builders who want a smaller structure that will fit neatly on a shelf, or one that fits more neatly into the grid of an existing Lego City layout. And naturally, by creating facade versions of various temples, or by creating partially-ruined versions of various temples, it means that you can build more of them at the same time with all the pieces included. Only the best is good enough!

The vibrant mosaic floor can also be rearranged to build and play seven authentic Ancient and Medieval games, including Mancala from Africa, Senet from Ancient Egypt, Pachesi from Ancient India, the game of Go from Ancient China and Japan, Backgammon from the Byzantine Empire, Patolli from the Aztecs, and Chess from Ancient Persia and Medieval Europe. Plus, if you're eagle-eyed, you'll see that all of the major civs in my sets have enough minifigs to play as one side of the Chess board, with a King, a Queen, two cultural figures as Bishops, two soldiers as Knights, and unique banners to mark the Rooks!

If you are daring, you can also build boards for The Royal Game of Ur from Mesopotamia, the game of Ludus Duodecim Scriptorum from Ancient Rome, and several Hnefatafl games from The Viking Age, even though the rules for them have been obscured in the mists of time... Will you be the one to solve the mystery? With seven full temples, seven partial temples, and more than seven games, this will be the Lego set with the most alternate models ever produced. You can imagine it will be an eye-popping set to display and sell at the Lego Stores at the mall as well as major Museum Gift Shops in the future!

The Epic story begins in Rome, so be sure to start there. Next, be sure to vote your support for free by pressing the big green button at the top right of each page. It's totally free to vote for as many sets as you want, since most of the fans are kids!
