    at tomorrow’s meeting, I’m going to look for 1 or 2 people to take up the responsibility of coordinating the challenges each quarter. I have a bunch of ideas for future ones, and you should feel free to add your own here too.

    • best use of a printed tile – other than its original use
    • “pittsburgh”
    • make a monster
    • vic viper
    • seed part challenges from inventory
    • realistic vehicles
    • character building
    • collaborate with at least 1 other builder – Q3 2017
    • brickheadz

    What’s ‘character building’? Like when Calvin’s dad made Calvin do stuff that he didn’t like? Also:

    A “seed part” challenge would also be interesting (a la Iron Builder challenges).

    << So, @bengood921 you and @randomdan volunteering to organize these going forward?

    Wait, what? This is reminding of when Dave Barry did his history of America and wrote that the founding fathers selected George Washington as the leader of the revolutionary army “because he was the strongest and the bravest and not actually in the room at the time”, cause I definitely don’t remember having this conversation. I can think of lots of reasons why this isn’t going to work out (not the least of which is that I am not strong or brave), so I’m going to have to pass on this one. But it was nice of you think of me.

    >> A “seed part” challenge would also be interesting (a la Iron Builder challenges).

    True, and when you think about it, we already did that one, when Josh unloaded the white doors on us. Which I thought of because the next one is fairly obvious also, we have a lot of pearl gold 2×2 round tiles.

    I am not sure who originates ideas for the quarterly build challenges, but figured I would throw some ideas out for consideration:

    1. Best arcade or food stand to support a potential amusement park theme at the trolley museum.

    2. Best build based on a collectible minifigure such as the picture below. I don’t build many MOCs, but this was something I did for fun and it ran around our Christmas tree this year.

    How about “Rain”, based on the rain slicked look of the brick built roads we’ve done:
    * How do we depict it?
    * How do we depict figs reacting to it?
    * What things happen primarily or only in the rain?
    * What is rain famous for?

    Or perhaps expand on this. Pick a weather condition. It’s a heat wave. Or it’s windy. Or it’s an ice storm. Weather happens every day, but few builds incorporate it. That might be an eye opening challenge.

    * What is rain famous for?

    “If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain. If you’re not into yoga, and you have half a brain…”
