Games & Events

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, Jan 10th for best odds of being drawn to play.  Signing up does not guarantee a seat; it merely indicates your interest in playing the game.  How it works.

Typically, more people sign-up than there are seats.  The computer will attempt to shuffle players into their preferred games; you are more likely to be seated at your #1 pick than your #2.  Sign up for all games in which you are interested, then ensure your selections are properly sorted (at your games page).  Sign up for as many games as you wish; there is no benefit to limiting your sign-ups.

Everyone onboard by Friday, Jan 10th has the same chance of being drawn.  After the drawing, if seats remain available, sign-up for that game will remain open.

You may be drawn for multiple games, but you will not be drawn for overlapping games.  You may be drawn as alternate in multiple, overlapping games; showing up for these - or not - is your choice.

Cards Against Humanity

Friday 9:30pm
1hr

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.

Dirty Buildster

1hr
hosted by VACANT
Ages 8+.
Will draw 15 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up by Friday, Jan 10th

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!

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.

It's called Saran Wrap Ball and it's just that... a massive ball of Saran Wrap with a ton 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 :)

World Of Lights

Friday 8:00pm
1hr
hosted by Todd Webb
All ages.
Open seating.

Light up your MOC!  For one hour we'll darken the room and enjoy the show by the street lights of LEGOtown.

Admittedly, the venue doesn't get as dark as we would like. But until I invent the darklight, we're stuck with some emergency lights :(

World Of Lights BYOB


Yard Sale

Saturday 5:30pm
2hrs
hosted by Ocey Newsome-Rogers 
All ages.
Open seating.

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.
