4 Ways to Make Money with Lego Games
In this article, I will quickly introduce four solutions that can make money with the famous Lego games.
1- Participate in the creation of tomorrow’s Lego product
Lego launched some years ago (in 2008) a crowdsourcing site – sharing ideas – called Lego Ideas, which brings together enthusiasts of this building game to try to develop tomorrow’s Lego products.
Lego Games Ideas allows users over the age of 13 to come up with ideas for new Lego game sets. These ideas must get at least 10,000 fans, and when they are studied by the jury who decides whether or not this or that idea can be marketed.
In the event that an idea gets the 10,000 supporters and it is validated by Lego, the person who proposed this idea will be rewarded in several ways:
- 1% commission on total net sales.
- Five free copies of the game set from the concept.
- The right to see his name appear on the boxes of the game set.
- Rewards on the Lego Ideas site, in the form of points and badges.
The most interesting is, of course, the 1% commission. 1% it may seem little, but we must say that the company Lego is 3.83 billion euros in revenue in 2014 ( source Wikipedia ), so in my opinion, this 1% can be very very interesting.
Obviously, on paper, it seems easy, but the reality is quite different. Some product ideas are great – we can have a preview directly on the site – the level is very high, but unfortunately it is not easy to get the 10,000 supporters and even less easy to get the Jury approval. However, if you are passionate about Lego games, it costs nothing (and it can pay big!

2- Invest in Lego games
The second way to make money with Lego games is an investment.
Lego games are so popular that there is a site dedicated to investing in this market, the site Brick Picker, which allows knowing from month to month, which Lego sets of play value and vice versa.
The main Lego playsets that seem to take a lot of value over time are the Lego Star Wars boxes; I could see that some of these game sets were sometimes sold at over 2400 euros. It’s just huge.
3- The homemade Lego Games way
Some people have understood that you can earn a lot of money thanks to the passion of Lego and have built a real homemade business around this game.
For example, on the site Etsy (specializing in the sale of handmade objects) we can see many Lego products, mosaics at more than 1000 euros per unit, Lego jewelry, various and varied decorations, storage boxes, etc …

4- And the solutions that come back often …
To earn money thanks to the passion of the Lego one can also consider creating a site, for example, a blog type, focused on this subject … by cons there are already content sites on the subject, so to my opinion, it can be challenging to make a place, to see.
We can also think of writing a book about Lego games, digital or not; I saw that it is not bad, on Amazon, for example, we can discover a lot of digital books on the subject – like for instance that -ci – primarily created to showcase the best work done in Lego
