The colors seem a bit off. I'm also wondering if they will work any other Ninja characters into this series.

if they stick with dark colors, i might be tempted to get, otherwise it's another pass.

it'll be a great theme to get the more obscure colors if that's the case! dark purple, dark orange, etc. yum... you can also use the torsos as robes if these are the same as the CMF version. :D

Maybe they will be, but if LEGO is trying to make this an original theme or venture then chances are they will make everything new. It will be quite a surprise though, whatever they go with.

This sounds interesting, but I'm not hopeful on what the price per piece will be.

Nor, given how the game mechanics of their boardgames is rather luckluster, am I hopeful it will be a good game.

Really the world Boardgame revolution started in Germany about 10 years ago....why didn't Lego turn to the German style game mechanics to make their games. Most kids can learn "Ticket to ride", "Settlers of Catan," "Carcasonne," "Bohnanza," and the like; but the possible strategies are complex enough to keep adults interested for hours.

They did get Reiner Knizia to design one of the games, Ramses Pyramid I believe.

The board games you list are johnny come latelies, the real strategy board game revolution began in the good old USofA with MB's game master games and Avalon hill games.

Actually yeah I know Stuff like Squadleader. Avalon Hills stuff tended to obnoxiously rules heavy, god knows I playtested for them. They emerged over 40 years ago as an evolution from lead soldiers stuff and military colleges. One of which ended up becomeing Dungeons & Dragons(a revolution in and of itself.) I like the Gamemaster series, but only Axis and Allies and Shogun/Samuri Swords seemed to have any staying power.

But all of it had pages and pages of rules. And often pages of errata. Again I enjoyed playing some, 1830 in particular.

What I'm talking about is the revolution of making simple games that were rules light enough for 8 - 10 year olds, yet had enough strategies to be a really interesting game for adults. That is an accomplishment.

Just noticed this line - I think if you're a ninja and you're famous, you're doing it wrong ;)

More info from 1000Steine.de regarding NinjaGo:
Ninjago!
Ne mix of Beyblades and trading card game. On a disk are characters with different weapons that you can let them fight against each other. The disc seems to have put themselves in rotation and there are a variety of new weapons in the sets. Including a large bone, katana swords, spears in damask-look, a short chain and something like a hammer fight. Lego praises the parts as low price products, and I think € 9.99 per figure with accessories quite pricey. Maybe I just got too little money for something. 12 different characters, there to purchase individually. I like to imagine, if necessary by one.
There are then also suitable sets:

2260 Ice Dragon € 19.99
- Exo-Force meets Ninja
2263 Turbo Shredder € 29.99
- Creepy
2505 Garmadons fortress € 69.99
- I hope there is soon pictures, so you can see the stuff too!
2504 Spinjitzu Training € 39.99
- The name says it all!
Ninja outpost in 2516 € 4.99
2258 Ninja ambush € 6.99
2259 Skeleton Chopper € 14.99
- Noting that Lego has here provided a skeleton with a helmet, which is strongly reminiscent of an army helmet.
ALL HAIL THE BLACTRON EMPIRE!

Those look crazy. I like the bone staff and the new 'breastplate' pices for the skeletons.

Saw that too. Looks like they have new waist pieces for the skeletal opponents. The asian style dragon set looks really cool.
