Boat Race

Friday 10:00am
1hr 30mins
hosted by Ian Warfield 
All ages.
Open seating.

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.

This is a slalom race.  See the rules for more details.

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.

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


CAH Vignette Build

Thursday 9:30pm
30mins
hosted by Heather Pearson
Hosted during Adult Swim.
Ages 21+.
Will draw 30 players
Sign-up by Friday, Jul 19th

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
1hr 30mins
hosted by Erik Pearson
Hosted during Adult Swim.
Ages 21+.
Open seating.

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.

Sign-up by Friday, Jul 19th

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!

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

Audience Participation: The audience (your fellow AFOLs) may bid - with real money - on other handicaps for players mid-round.  Funds raised support our charity!


Dirty Brickster $10-$15

Thursday 8:00pm
1hr 30mins
hosted by Mark Shoger 
All ages.
Open seating.

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!

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 store 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

hosted by VACANT
Ages 18+.
Will draw 15 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Jul 19th

Players are provided with random cups 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.

  • Cups of bricks are provided for you.
  • Cups 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.
  • One winner gets a LEGO set. Every player keeps their cup of bricks!

RoboHockey

time not set
hosted by Ken O'Mara 
Ages 6+.
Open seating.

Bring a robot for some 2-on-2 RoboHockey competition.  Robots are operated by remote control, not autonomously.

(EV3 bricks are easily controlled with an app or the remote included in the home set, NXT bricks are trickier but not impossible.  PF and RC controllers also allowed.)

Robots score goals by delivering pucks (i.e. this) to the opponent’s goal.

Robot soccer players should be no larger than 12”x12” (existing SUMO bots are welcome).  Robots may move and control the puck in any way you choose, including attachments that grab the puck.  Robots may defend the goal by any method, including pushing other robots out of the way.

See the complete rules (updated June 26, 2018).

The host will bring extra hockeybots for kids new to Mindstorms who want to try them out.

Sign-up by Friday, Jul 19th

It's called Saran Wrap Ball and it's just that... a massive ball of Saran Wrap with a bunch of goodies layered throughout.

Each player takes a turn unwrapping the ball, revealing LEGO prizes within. Unwrap fast!  As soon as the player to your right rolls doubles, your turn is over and you pass the ball!

When the ball is completely unraveled, the game is over.  Everyone keeps the prizes they collected :)

"One "seed" part is chosen - and kept secret until game-time.

Each player grabs a spot in the Stay & Play area and is given a baggie of the seed parts.  Players have 30 minutes to build MOCs (as many as they wish) featuring the seed element.

Judges determine the winner, who receives a prize, and all participants take home some of the seed part.

Buy-In: $15

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

BrickFair provides Technic LEGO sets.  Participants show up at game time and buy-in.  Thirty players = $420 raised for the $500 value sets provided.  BrickFair chips in the rest.  Supplies permitting, players may buy-in for multiple shares and thus take home more pieces.

hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Will draw 10 players + 2 alternates

Each player gets 6 digs in the Tractor Time machine.

The first 30 minutes are for digging in the coin-op game and seeing what parts people get.  The second half hour is spent building.

Best MOC wins a prize and everyone keeps their parts.

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

Friday 7:00pm
30mins
hosted by Mark Shoger 
All ages.
Open seating.

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.

Yard Sale Thursday

Thursday 6:00pm
2hrs
hosted by VACANT
All ages.
Open seating.
Buy-In: $10

Buy-In: $10

This 2-hour event is your chance to sell leftover LEGO without being a vendor.  Outside the vendor area, this is the only time registrants may openly advertise items for sale (the MOC area is a strict no-sale-sign zone).

Pre-price your items and collect some quick cash for your unwanted LEGO!

Signup on-site at the Bling Desk.  Find the clipboard with a Thursday sign-up sheet and a Saturday sign-up sheet.

When signing-up, you are permitted to claim either 1/2-table ($5) or one full table ($10). 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.  Table fee will be collected during the sale.

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.
