  1. Can anyone give us a summary of what being changed (or possibly being changed) about the game rules whenever that actually happens (perhaps an estimated timeline on that, too)? I've been "checking in" for months, but it seems everything is nearly at a standstill since May....and no real clear indication as when (or if) it's going to get fixed and running again. So....is anything concrete in place...or is it all still a toss up and undecided? What is actually in the works? Thanks in advance...and please link me to any new posts I may have missed...
  2. 14181, molding problem

    you see the same effect using 1x2 bricks on a baseplate.....like a long wall, but successive rows or thickening the wall with some 1x6 or 1x8's flattens it back out.
  3. Hey, did you end up coming to one of the meetings? I know we had a couple of new faces there and at Denver Comic Con....but I never know who is who from online....lol
  4. Like many other LUGs and LEGO groups, we general hold a small parts draft at each of our meetings (usually every other month). For those not familiar, a "Parts Draft" is (usually) an activity where 3-30 folks purchase and bring an agreed upon set to the meeting. There, we open all the sets and separate the different parts into piles of like parts. A random order of participants is chosen and then we take turns picking bags (or lots) of individual parts we are interested in. (depending on attendance levels and interest, usually its about 7-12 participants) There are several "special situations" for certain types of parts, and various groups have come up with a variety of different rules and methods for holding a parts draft. I am curious about the various rules and methods you all use....to sort of build a "Guide" for others seeking ideas for, or an understanding of, Parts Drafts. For instance, we commonly (not always) use the following: 1.) Minifigures in set are assembled and count as one "lot" or pick for a turn (A "minifigure" here would consist of Legs, Torso, head, head covering and any worn accessories) 2.) Minifigure utensils/weapons are grouped as their own individual lots of parts 3.) Detailed animals (dogs, cats, baby dragons, hamsters, etc.) are individual lots 4.) Simple animals and food items (frogs, snakes, fish, apples, bananas, etc.) are grouped in lots of parts by type. 5.) pick order is chosen by random number generator (usually an iphone app, but dice would also work) 6.) list order is down and then back up, with the last and first names on the list getting two choices when the order flips (That is, with 4 participants: A picks 1, B picks 1, C picks 1, D picks 2, C picks 1, B picks 1, A picks 2, B picks 1, C picks 1, etc until lots are gone) 7.) stickers are sometimes grouped as a lot (usually decided for each draft) 8.) Tires and wheels are separately grouped lots of parts. 9.) When one part is present in "huge" quantities, it may be subdivided into multiple, equal sized lots at the discretion of the draft group. There may be some others, but you get the idea... We usually use a set that is $24.99 or less that is decided either by an individual running the draft or a poll of members. in the month between meetings. However, I have heard that some groups plan drafts months in advance, sometimes using pricier sets....I've also heard of groups that take advantage of sales to purchase larger quantities of sets and then offer a "buy in" to members that want to participate.... So, what methods do you use? What have you found works...what have you found does not work? Let's share knowledge and learn from each other!
  5. Thanks so much all! Had quite a "birdie windfall" in a LUG support recently....these are only about a third of all that I have...lol Hrmmmmmm......a new Sea Rats invasion force perhaps....

  7. Account Summary

    Is this post a replacement for the old monthly "scorecard," or is the scorecard still going to be posted as well?
  8. Oh, in case it needs to be publicly noted: After considering the discussion in posts 1153-1165 of this thread, I submitted an adjudication form to change the "Far Horizons Salvage and Shipworks" from Factory-Large to Artisan-Large. A separate adjudication form was entered to change "Brotherhood of the Red Dragon" from Commerce-Large to Education-Large as that category was unavailable when the build was originally submitted, but fits its intended use.

  12. So, at this point, I rekon we will just be getting a single "scorecard" for March and April? Or is the scorecard something that's being scrapped/changed in the game update? Speaking of which, are game updates expected to begin for May, or are they still pending? Thanks,
