Curious - Is calling a building toy a "game" a regional dialect thing, like soda vs pop? I have never heard of Legos, K'nex, Tinkertoys, etc. referred to as "games" before.



Yes, I've been thinking about this and it was my mistake, it doesn't make sense to call it Game in English nor in Spanish (original article).

Game (juego) is often used here as a synonym of toy like in "board game". I call it "juego de construcción".
