Cards Against Humanity

Friday 9:15pm
1hr 30mins
hosted by Alexander O'Mara
Ages 18+.
Open seating event.

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.

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

Dirty Buildster

Friday 6:00pm
1hr
hosted by Andrew Bulthaupt
Ages 8+.
Will draw 15 players + 3 alternates
Sign-up still open.

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!

hosted by KC Ross

Go Fish Tournament

Thursday 6:00pm
1hr
hosted by Allan O'Mara
All ages.
Will draw 8 players + 2 alternates

This is the classic carnival "gold fish bowl" game.  Get your ping pong balls into the bowls, and win some LEGO pieces!

Oh, just sign up!

Minifig Swap

1hr
hosted by Ocey Newsome-Rogers 
All ages.

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.

Saran Wrap Ball

Friday 4:00pm
1hr
hosted by Heather Cullin
Ages 12+.
Will draw 12 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up still open.

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 :)


Settlers Of Catan

Thursday 4:00pm
1hr 30mins
hosted by Andrew Bulthaupt 
Ages 16+.
Will draw 6 players + 1 alternate
Sign-up still open.

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!

Technic Draft

Saturday 8:30pm
1hr 30mins
hosted by Charlie Stephens 
Ages 8+.
Open seating event.

Same as the Parts Draft!

Buy LEGO set #42093 Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and bring it with you to the game.

Here it is at Walmart.

Wait until names are drawn (about a week before the show) so that you know if you're playing or alternate in this game.


Ticket Raffle

Saturday 9:30am
20mins
hosted by Chelsea Dain
All ages.
Open seating event.

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
1hr 30mins
hosted by Andrew Bulthaupt
All ages.
Will draw 16 players + 2 alternates
Sign-up still open.

See you on the green!


Yard Sale

Saturday 6:00pm
2hrs
hosted by Ocey Newsome-Rogers 
All ages.
Open seating event.

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.
