Have you seen Ninjago from LEGO? I love these!

The background story revolves around Ninjas battling a skeleton army using their powers of Spinjitsu. But this time, LEGO has brought us more than just a playset. Sure, you've got good guys, bad guys and an awesome theme, and that's all very good in it's own right. Plus with LEGO minifigs and bricks, these ninjas can do some pretty awesome tricks. There are lots of clever hidden traps and details, plus your ninjas can run along walls or hang from a ceiling to drop on an enemy. But it doesn't stop with cool scenes and stories - Ninjago is an awesome game as well.
The game works something like this: Choose a Ninjago minifig character, three weapons, a spinner base and four battle cards. Your choices affect the battle, and so does your skill in spinning - that's Spinjitsu! You'll place your character on the spinner, equip and position your weapons, then set him spinning to attack your opponent. The last ninja standing wins the round and takes one weapon from the fallen character. The game is simple enough to grasp, but once you start playing, you'll find that the combination of your choice of weapons and positions, plus your skill in spinning the figure and the effective use of battle cards, keeps things challenging.
Ultimately, there's a lot you can do with the LEGO Ninjago sets. The game plays a bit like Beyblades, but with the addition of battle cards and the interchangeable minifigs. And of course, with LEGO, the possibilities are always endless. You can spend hours trying out different figures, weapons and parts from other sets to build your most powerful character...even if he's not really a ninja.
