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.
All the fun of Parts Draft without the hassle of remembering to bring a set. BrickFair provides the sets - 23x #41234 Bumblebee Helicopter - for this game. Selected players buy-in for $15. Twelve players will divide 23x #41234 Bumblebee Helicopter sets. That's a total 3,266, or 272 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.
We save many of the biggest and best prizes for our own private Bingo Grande held Thursday evening just before opening ceremonies.
The second half of our Bingo games, with bigger and better prizes still!
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
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.
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.
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
Simply attend the Closing Ceremonies - they are extremely brief - which end with some awesome prizes given! Names are drawn from a hat.
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 :)
NEW! The classic cornhole game ("made of LEGO"). Individuals compete, eliminating each other until only two are left. Top placers win LEGO prizes.
A fun, relaxing game!
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.
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.
Go Fish Tournament
This is the classic carnival "gold fish bowl" game. Get your ping pong balls into the bowls, and win some LEGO pieces!
The longer you last in the tournament the more LEGO you win. Open to all ages, all skill levels or no skill, experienced or novice, familiar with the game or not - everyone can win.
Oh, just sign up!
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!
Heads Are Gonna Roll
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
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!
Poker knowledge required, obviously.
Impaired Speed Build
Each player is given a set consisting of ~300 pieces. Players race to completion. The first to correctly build his kit wins a prize, and everyone keeps their playing kit!
Requires consumption of mass quantities. Players may bring their own - the host will adjust shots accordingly.
Come watch and possibly participate in a game of LEGO trivia for LEGO prizes!
Contestants will be drawn at random during the game. So come over, drop your name in the hat, and have a seat and enjoy the competition!
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
We swap a part from your set with your competition. You must find and steal back that part in order to complete your build and win your game!
As always, players keep the sets they play with, and the winner gets a LEGO prize to boot!
Experience with the game of Munchkin suggested. We'll play 2 games of 6-players each, simultaneously.
"Kill the Monsters, Steal the Treasure, Stab Your Buddy!" - such is the motto of the Munchkin card game, a mix of role play and genre references rolled up in a wacky card game.
In addition to the LEGO prize offered by BrickFair, official SJ promo Munchkin bookmarks will be given to ALL players, and promo cards to winners.
Oh Yeah, I Knew That
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
Simply attend the Opening Ceremonies which end with some awesome prizes! Names are drawn from a hat.
The Opening Ceremonies is also where first-timers to BrickFair can learn some basics of what to expect during the weekend.
To participate, bring LEGO SET #70624 Vermillion Invader with you to the game.
All participants bring the same set LEGO SET #70624 Vermillion Invader to the event. All sets are opened and parts grouped together, then divvied up among the participants. Everyone's a winner!
The set is still available at The LEGO Store. Game host will also have a few copies to sell to players but it's best not to depend on that.
Pass The Brick
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!
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
Experience with Settlers is required.
We'll modify the rules to speed up the game, so hopefully it can be played inside one hour:
And of course the winner gets a prize!
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
NEW! See you on the green!
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.
