Exhibitors welcome to play; these are typically not public events.  Rules and eligibility are determined by each game's host.  Sign-up for games by Friday, Apr 21st for best odds of being drawn to play.

$15 Draft

Thursday 6:00pm
hosted by Todd Webb
Ages 12+.
Will draw 12 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

All the fun of Parts Draft without the hassle of remembering to bring a set. BrickFair provides the sets - (NEW DATA COMING SOON) 3x #10249 Winter Toy Shop - for this game. Selected players buy-in for $15. Twelve players will divide (NEW DATA COMING SOON) 3 sets. That's a total (NEW DATA COMING SOON) 2,694, or (NEW DATA COMING SOON) 224 parts (average) per player, for $15.

Like the Parts Draft, this is a great opportunity to acquire a deeper quantity of select parts at low cost.


Bingo Grande

Thursday 7:20pm
hosted by Todd Webb
All ages.
Open seating game.

We save many of the biggest and best prizes for our own private Bingo Grande held Thursday evening just before opening ceremonies.


Blind Build

Saturday 9:00pm
hosted by Andy Price
Ages 10+.
Will draw 18 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

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).


Cards Against Humanity

Friday 10:00pm
hosted by VACANT
Ages 18+.
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.


Castellan

Friday 5:00pm
hosted by Jme Wheeler 
Ages 13+.
Will draw 8 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

Will be played tournament style, starting with 8 players.  Three rounds of two player games will be played: an opening round with eight (4 games with 2 players each), a semifinal with four (2 games with 2 players each), then the final with two playing on a LEGO-built version!

A single game lasts ~30 minutes; the whole tourney will last ~2 hours, depending on players' skill.

Knowledge of Castellan is strongly recommended, but we'll give a quick overview to help out with clarifications if necessary.  Check out this PDF of rules.


Checkers Tournament

Saturday 7:00pm
hosted by Dave Gwon
Ages 10 - 17.
Will draw 8 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

The classic checkers game.  You know it!  You love it!

Well, okay, so you don't "love" it.  But it's a decent game.  And of course the further you last in this tournament, the bigger the LEGO prize you receive :)


Closing Door Prizes

Sunday 6:00pm
hosted by Todd Webb
All ages.
Open seating game.

Simply attend the Closing Ceremonies - they are extremely brief - which end with some awesome prizes given! Names are drawn from a hat.


Combo-Build

Thursday 5:00pm
hosted by Dave Gwon
Ages 10+.
Will draw 16 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

Each player is given the same 2 sets to start. Each player combines the sets to build an entirely original creation. The MOC deemed the most unique and creative wins a prize. All players keep their 2 sets :)


Dirty Buildster

Friday 2:00pm
hosted by Alfred Speredelozzi
All ages.
Will draw 16 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

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.
  • There is only one winner who gets a prize, but every player gets to keep their baggie of bricks!

Early Draft

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

This special early check-in game is mathmatically 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 12 players from among the walk-ups.  Check-in promptly on the first day to join in this special game.


Guesstimate

Saturday 1:00pm
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating game.

A jar of LEGO pieces is the prize - and the challenge.

Just guess how many pieces are in the jar (or at least be the closest guess) and win the jar. Simple!

Four jars are given away during the weekend, at 1:00pm and 3:00pm on Saturday and Sunday.


Heads Are Gonna Roll

Friday 5:00pm
hosted by Heather Cullin
Ages 5+.
Open seating game.

Sure, you can build with LEGO, but can you balance them?  Try to keep your head in the game while navigating the obstacle course.  The longer you stay in the game, the bigger your prize!  Every player wins something :)


Here Kitty Kitty

time not set
hosted by KC Ross
All ages.
Will draw 6 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

In the crazy cat-collecting game Here, Kitty, Kitty!, your neighborhood has a cat problem.  The problem is the cats don't all belong to you!  Unfortunately you can't just grab them for yourself as everyone in the neighborhood wants to claim those adorable kitties.

Outwit your fellow feline fiends as you lure cats onto your property, move cats into your house, and steal cats from your neighbors.  All's fair in love and cat-collecting!


Hold'em

Saturday 10:00pm

Minifig Swap

Friday 4:00pm
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating game.

Bring in your unwanted or less-than-loved minifigs to trade with others!  Before the Yard Sales, this one hour exchange is a great opportunity to mix up your minifig collection.

Bring all the minifigs you wish; you never know what others might want!

Cash is discouraged.  This is intended as a swap and trade event.  But we understand cash can make for more even trades.  Volunteers will be around, overlooking, to help ensure (but not guarantee) that less knowledgeable FOLs are aware of the value of their figs.  We're all here to have fun; let's all play nice, please.


Missing Part Speed Build

Thursday 7:00pm
hosted by Tony Sties
All ages.

A game show of questions and riddles.  Get the answer right and win a prize.  The questions are not LEGO-centric - but the prizes are!


Opening Door Prizes

Thursday 8:15pm
hosted by Todd Webb
All ages.

Parts Draft

Saturday 8:00pm
hosted by VACANT
Ages 16+.
Will draw 30 players + 4 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

To participate, bring (NEW DATA COMING SOON) LEGO SET #41074 Azari and the Magical Bakery with you to the game.

All participants bring the same set (NEW DATA COMING SOON) LEGO SET #41074 Azari and the Magical Bakery to the event. All sets are opened and parts grouped together, then divvied up among the participants. Everyone's a winner!

Set #41074 is still available from Toys R Us online.  Game host will also have a few copies to sell, but it's best not to depend on that.



Pass The Brick

Friday 1:00pm
hosted by Dave Gwon
Ages 16+.
Will draw 12 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

Build the best MOC you can with the parts provided.  But don't get too attached; anything can happen during the frenzy of building!

Final creations are judged and a winner gets a LEGO prize.  All players keep their MOCs and parts!


Riddle

Thursday 11:59am
hosted by Todd Webb
All ages.
Open seating game.

Inside your program guide you will find a Word Search game with a riddle. Find all the hidden words, discover the hidden message, and solve the riddle for a LEGO prize! All exhibitors are welcome to solve the riddle after checking-in.

First place prize is awesome! Runner-up prizes (limited quantity) are tiny and sad :\


Settlers Of Catan

Thursday 3:00pm
hosted by Andrew Bulthaupt 
Ages 16+.
Will draw 6 players + 1 alternate
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

Experience with Settlers is required.

We'll modify the rules to speed up the game, so hopefully it can be played inside one hour:

  1. No desert. The robber starts off-board.
  2. No 2s and no 12s. They will be replaced with duplicates of other numbers. Anyone rolls a 2 or 12 simply re-rolls.

And of course the winner gets a prize!


Ticket Raffle

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

Prizes are on display during AFOL check-in.  Each prize has its own bucket.

Exhibitors find four raffle tickets in their goodie bags.  Drop the tickets into whichever bucket(s) you wish.  Be sure to keep your stub of each ticket!  This game uses numbered tickets, not names.

A random ticket is drawn as the winner for each prize, Saturday morning before the doors open to the public.


Tiger Plastics Open

Saturday 8:30pm
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Will draw 16 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Apr 21st

NEW!  See you on the green!


Yard Sale

Saturday 5:00pm
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!

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.
