Re: BrickCan AFOL Newbie - Any tips?

We also have an unofficial WhatsApp BrickCan group, that I'll be inviting attendees to join the day before BrickCan and for the duration of the four days. Think of it like an old fashioned bulletin board system, where you can ask questions, or set up meal co-ordination. I say unofficial, because it'...

Re: BrickCan AFOL Newbie - Any tips?

Pierre - You forgot to mention BrickCan 101 aka BrickCan Intro ! It's a great introduction to what to expect. Thursday at 5:30. I’d recommend it, if the guy running it wasn’t such a doofus. Oh wait.... but yes, definitely sign up for games, as Daniel and Keith mentioned. Just be open to it all. Don...

Re: BrickCan AFOL Newbie - Any tips?

Volunteer. I think that's the easiest way to feel involved and part of it all. This is probably a very good thing if you're an introvert, who is willing to come out of their shell. Register and Bring MOCs. It's a sense of contribution, pride and a large part of the reason we do this. For most, build...

Hey, I just wanted to add to this - Emily just messaged me on facebook as well, disappointed she didn't know about the last meeting (she asked when it was, and I said last night).

Wow, you play Brikwars and you haven’t found us yet? Welcome! So what type of armies have you built up so far? We have a few who still play, so hopefully you’ll have some worthy opponents soon. The next meeting is Oct 27th (evening) and our membership coordinator will get in touch with you.

Re: New to the forum?

I think you've come to the right spot. It's good to find people that you can "geek out"' with about your hobby. That speak the language and can help you grow. Or as you say, just kick back and have a beer with.

Welcome!

Re: Lego Inventory/Spreadsheets

I used to use a basic spreadsheet but almost all of that can be done on Brickset and then imported into Rebrickable. At least that's how I've done it.

Re: City 2018 rumours

I had to look up what ungulates were, the BC school system had failed my education. I did not know that the distinction would be even number of toes vs. odd number of toes. Then again even reading the Wikipedia entry, I'm still unclear what an ungulate is.

Re: Ninjago City announcement

So is there a market for printing LEGO bricks with the UV printer rather than applying stickers? I wonder what people would pay for that, assuming that the buyer has to send the bricks from the set to the printer, labour costs and then postage back.

Welcome Carlos!

It's expensive enough being a LEGO addict yourself, you have to turn your kids into them too? Or is this some nefarious double down scheme to be able to claim all that LEGO back when they go through their dark ages? :)
