Players all receive the same small set to build (set not revealed until the game). Players may read their instructions, but cannot see the parts they are assembling!

Points are deducted for parts in the wrong places, and for missing parts.

The winner gets an awesome prize, and everyone has a great time (and keeps their small set).

Boat Race

Saturday 10:00am
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating game.

Build a boat (using only LEGO parts, of course) and race against other boats for speed in the hotel swimming pool.  Use Technic motors (or MINDSTORMS if you dare).  Race for first!  Race for fun!  A Technic set awaits the winner.

All boats must be self-propelled and move without external assistance, use of tether lines, etc., although remote controls are allowed.  Unless otherwise specified here in the rules, the race course is in a straight line against the clock.

Some venues (notably BF/VA) are outdoors and do not let you walk closely to your boat.  Take that into consideration in your design.  In past contests, Power Functions R/C has not worked well due to distance and interference from sunlight, but classic radio R/C does work.  We also permit the use of sBrick as a controller.

The race is scheduled for 10:00am sharp on Saturday, at the moment the pool opens.  This should give participants enough time to compete in the race before the first hotel swimmers arrive, and get back to the Expo before the first wave of public visitors hits.

Race held rain or shine, though we can't prevent the hotel from closing the pool if they need.


CAH Vignette Build

Thursday 7:00pm
hosted by Eric Seaberg
Hosted during Adult Swim.
Ages 21+.
Will draw 30 players
Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

This game is held in two sessions.

STEP 1: Players meet at the designated time to draw cards from the CAH deck.  Each player ends up with one black and one white card.  Players then have a couple days to build a vignette representing their two cards.

STEP 2: Players bring their vignettes together for display during Adult Swim.  Players vote for their favorite (game host casts the deciding vote if needed), and the winner gets a prize.

A basic understanding of Cards Against Humanity is strongly suggested.


Cards Against Humanity

Saturday 9:00pm
hosted by Bret Harris
Hosted during Adult Swim.
Ages 21+.
Open seating game.

A party game for horrible people.  Unlike most of the party games you may have played before, Cards Against Humanity is as despicable and awkward as you and your friends.  For this modified version you will receive bricks for good answers, and you will need to build something rude with your bricks for the win.

If you are easily offended, do not play this game.

Because of the hectic schedule during Adult Swim, this will be hosted as a first-seated pick-up game.


Charity Auction: Live

Friday 5:30pm
hosted by Kim Petty 
Ages 18+.
Open seating game.

The Charity Auction is a BrickFair staple.  All items are donated by you, the AFOLs, and all proceeds benefit our children's charity, the SladeChild Foundation.

DONATE A MOC!

If your MOC is something you are proud of, but just aren't interested in keeping any more, please consider donating your MOC to the Charity Auction!  Although the auction is held Friday afternoon, your MOC will remain on display all weekend; the winning bidder will collect your MOC at the end of BrickFair.  You don't really want to pack up that MOC and lug it home yet again, do you?  It's a win-win for everyone!

To bid on items, please be 18, and just grab a number card at the auction.  Have fun bidding!


Charity Auction: Silent

Friday 4:00pm
hosted by Kim Petty 
Ages 18+.
Open seating game.

All items in the Silent Charity Auction are donated by you, the AFOLs (and some strangers who mail us stuff, and TLG). All proceeds benefit our children's charity, the SladeChild Foundation.

To bid on items, please be 18, and simply write your name and bid amount using the old fashioned pen-and-paper method.

Happy bidding!

Constructionary KFOL

Saturday 6:00pm
hosted by KC Ross
Ages 8 - 13.
Will draw 6 players + 1 alternate
Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

The LEGO game of charades. A fun game produced by RoseArt in 2003 where players use LEGO parts to create an item listed on a card, and the other players guess what it is.

The rules have been altered a bit to make it more fun for all ages. Instead of moving around the board, you get small LEGO bricks for each correct guess, and you get to keep the bricks! KC has even put together a similar set of Duplo.

Children playing in this KFOL game must be accompanied by an adult.

Dirty Brickster $10-$15

Friday 2:00pm
hosted by Mark Shoger
All ages.
Open seating game.

No need to sign up; simply show up at the designated time and place with a wrapped gift in hand.  Any number of people can play!

Dirty Brickster will be played twice.  One session is valued $10 to $15.  The second game is $20 to $30.  Please choose the session which best matches the value of prize you have prepared.

How To Play:

Dirty Brickster is better known (in the USA) as "White Elephant Gift Exchange," "Yankee Swap," or "Dirty Santa."  Players each contribute one gift to the game, and ultimately each player walks away with one different gift of similar value.

  1. All gifts should be valued the same.  Use your imagination to make it fun.  Out-of-production sets or some classic parts from your own collection are far more interesting that something off the Toys R Us shelf yesterday.  But please make it worth the appropriate amount!
  2. Players bring their gifts wrapped or sealed in a gift bag, careful to conceal the contents.
  3. Players gather in a circle and gifts are placed in the center.
  4. Names are drawn to see who picks first.
  5. The picked player chooses a gift from the pile and opens it, holds it up for all to see, and keeps it (for the time being).
  6. Another name is drawn.
  7. The next player can either choose to take an unopened gift from the pile or to steal a gift from any previous gift-holder.
  8. If someone's gift is stolen, that person can immediately unwrap a new gift or steal another gift.
  9. Any gift stolen 3 times becomes "dead."  It now belongs to that owner and may not be stolen again.

Dirty Brickster $20-$30

Friday 4:00pm
hosted by VACANT
Ages 21+.
Open seating game.

See description of Dirty Brickster $10-$15.


Dirty Buildster AFOL 1

Wednesday 4:00pm
hosted by VACANT
Ages 18+.
Will draw 15 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

Players are provided with random baggies of bricks. When the host says, "Go," players start building!

Players have limited time to build the most creative MOC they can muster. The objective is to be more creative than your competition and you must do it with your limited bricks and limited time.

  • Baggies of bricks are provided for you.
  • Baggies are the luck of the draw. You may find your bricks difficult to work with, but we'll try to keep all bags equal and fair.
  • You are not required to use every brick in the bag -- simply be as creative as you can with what you have.
  • The final MOCs are judged.
  • Only one winner (between the two games) gets a special Dirty Buildster Brickee and a LEGO set. But every player gets to keep their baggie of bricks!

Early Draft

Wednesday 1:00pm
hosted by VACANT
Ages 12+.
Open seating game.

This special early check-in game is mathematically similar to the $15 Draft, but the sets remain a mystery until game time.  Early Draft is hosted early the first day.  We'll call upon 36+ players from among the walk-ups.  If needed, a "qualifier game" (ie: Checkers) will be held to reduce entrants to 36.  Check-in promptly on the first day, Wednesday, to join in this very special game.


Exploding Kittens

Wednesday 12:00am
hosted by VACANT
Ages 13 - 20.
Will draw 9 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

Exploding Kittens is the same as Russian Roulette - if it were a card game with kittens.

Players draw cards until someone draws an Exploding Kitten card, at which point they are out - unless they have Defuse cards to save themselves. Or other cards to avoid, mitigate, or move their chances of drawing an Exploding Kittens card. Rules will be explained in ~3 minutes and then the game begins.

Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

This draft game is for BrickFair first-timers only.  You know who you are.

Buy-In: $10

BrickFair supplies the sets, players pay $10 entry and will receive 200+ pieces (average) each.  Everyone playing is a newcomer to our show!  So no pressure!

Bring $10 with you to the game.  There will likely be no-shows for this game; so even if not selected to play, you may like to show up and watch, and possibly get to play anyway.

GBC Beginner Challenge

Sunday 10:00am
hosted by Thomas Atkinson 
All ages.
Open seating game.

Ever consider building a GBC module?  Now is the perfect time.  Build well and we'll give you an NXT sensor kit!  Bring a new GBC module to the event, add it to the GBC table, and you're automatically entered!  Our GBC Theme Leaders will judge their favorites.

One GBC module = 1 entry.  Entries must be new to BrickFair.  Entries must be functional, but Tom and Stuart will spend a few minutes with you, if needed, to share their knowledge and tweak your creation.  Winners will be based first on reliability, then appearance and style.

We're giving away three NXT 1.0 sensor and motor kits to 3 lucky winners!  And you know what, there will probably be only 3 new modules entered.  So your odds are really good.

GBC is the most popular display of any LEGO show.  But amazingly it's built and operated by very few.  The GBC is recruiting, and we'll give you a chance to win those NXT sensors and motors to get you to give it a try.  Get building now!  Here's the GBC standard which must be followed.

Friday 2:00pm
hosted by Stuart Roll 
Ages 8+.
Will draw 30 players
Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

Similar to the Parts Draft, but you don't have to purchase a LEGO set in advance.

The game host provides 3 or 4 copies of the largest Technic set currently on-shelf at the LEGO store. Participants show up at game time and buy in for $20 increments. The number of "shares" depends upon the total cost of all the sets. For example: 3 sets at $200 = $600, means 30 "shares" are sold at $20 each. If fewer than 30 participate, players may buy in for multiple shares and thus take home more pieces.

Sign-up by Saturday, Jul 22nd

Each player gets 6 digs in the Tractor Time machine and then uses those pieces to build something.  The first 30 minutes are spent digging in the Tractor Time machine and seeing what parts people get.  The second half hour is spent building something.  Best MOC wins.

Ben Spector and Kim Petty have been playing this on their own for 3 years, and Kim thinks it's time to share the fun :)


Vignette Swap

Saturday 8:00pm
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating game.

Like Dirty Brickster (Secret Santa/White Elephant) but the vignettes are openly viewable.

Build a vignette (that you're willing to surrender) and bring it!  All vignettes are displayed together during the weekend.  At game time, vignettes are swapped, and a few bonus prizes awarded.  Sunday evening, after the public leaves, the vignettes are collected by their new owners to keep!

Players are provided (at the event) a display cube and black "base" plates (using the black plates is optional).  Limit one entry per person per game - enter only your best!

Participating vignettes must:

  1. Be at least 8x8 studs wide, but must not have any parts projecting beyond 12x12 studs (strict!),
  2. Be no wider than 12x12 studs (strict!),
  3. Be no taller than 12 bricks + 1 plate + 1 tile (including the provided black plate base - strict!), and
  4. Include at least 100 pieces.

See examples.  A vignette captures a moment in time and is usually very small.


Wacky Racers AFOL

Yard Sale Saturday

Open seating game.

See Yard Sale Thursday for details.


Yard Sale Thursday

Thursday 6:00pm
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating game.

This 2-hour event is your chance to sell your leftover LEGO items without being a vendor. Outside the vendor area, this is the only time registrants are invited to openly advertise items for sale (the MOC area is a no-sale-sign zone). Pre-price your items, find a spot in the Yard Sale area, and collect some quick cash for your unwanted LEGO pieces!

Online signup is not necessary, but to participate please sign up at the event on the paper sign-up sheets.

We'll provide two sign-up sheets, one for Thursday Yard Sale and one for the Saturday Yard Sale. When signing-up, you are permitted to claim either 1/2-table or one full table. Limit one full table per seller. Sign-up next to any Table # you prefer (ie: Friend A signs up for Table #12 and Friend B signs up for Table #13 = these friends will be next to each other). But table numbers will not be assigned until the time of the Yard Sale. Setting up is not possible and not permitted until table numbers have been assigned and sellers know where to set up.

RULE #1: All items on Yard Sale tables must be available for purchase.

Tip #1: Basing prices on Bricklink is good, but if an AFOL can get it on Bricklink later, why should s/he buy it from you now? Give others a reason to shop at your table rather than someone else's.

Tip #2: TLG sells 32x32 plain baseplates for $4.99. You're not likely to sell a used one for $10.

Tip #3: Don't just dump brick on the table and expect it to sell. Baggies are cheap, and there are a lot of other sellers competing for attention.


Signing up does not guarantee a seat; it merely indicates your interest in playing the game.  How it works.
