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

THE CREATOR'S NOTES:
You can see the Flickr slideshow
of hi-res images and concept art for the whole series.
These sets have been in the making for 36 years now. In sum, this is the fruit of the input of over a hundred archaeologists, scientists, and historians from six continents, most of whom have 4-to-8-year-olds of their own now. And when they see this, all of them are all asking the exact same question... "Why hasn't Lego done this years ago?!"
All of the temples and all of the fortifications in my sets can come apart into neat modular sections, based on an 8x8 grid... And so they can all be rearranged in multiple ways, they can all be expanded and redesigned easily, and they can all be connected together for maximum modular possibilities! There is also great potential to do expansion sets with additional wall segments for each unique civ.
If sets like this are a success, it could lead to many new things. For starters, I know that there is tremendous potential to sell beautiful and educational sets like these in major museum gift shops around the world, as they already do with the Architecture Theme, which would boost Lego's overall brand awareness and reputation with parents from all over the world.
For the future, they could easily branch out into sets for the Aztecs, the Mayans, Africa, India, China and Japan. And it could be expanded into the Medieval, Renaissance, Napoleonic, Steampunk, Modern, and Futuristic Eras. Plus it could inspire them to add more historical details and more educational value into Castle, Pirates, and Indiana Jones-style Adventurers sets. Will it be as popular as Batman, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Ninjago, Chima, Zelda, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Only one way to find out...! If they make a few new prints, they can keep using them again and again for the next 10,000 years...! Let's do this! =D
