Dirty Brickster

Travis will again be hosting Dirty Brickster in 2023. Dirty Brickster is a kind of a white elephant gift exchange game and is somewhat similar to Kris Kringle. Each participant brings exactly one wrapped gift. The gift must be boxed LEGO set/s to the value of $50 – no stationary, bags of parts or non brickbuilding items. We understand Lego do not sell sets with a RRP of $50.. the set should be within the $45 to $50 range. Please try to choose something that you yourself would like to receive as a gift!

When the Dirty Brickster begins, participants form a circle with the gifts piled in the centre. Everyone checks their spot for the starting marker. If you have the marker, you go first. In a clockwise direction, each participant chooses a gift by either (a) unwrapping one from the pile or (b) stealing a non-locked gift. In the event that a participant’s gift is stolen, they have the same choices except they may not steal back the gift that was just stolen from them. Gifts are automatically locked (and out of the game) after being stolen for the third time. Once everyone has had a turn, the first participant may elect to steal any non-locked gift beginning a new round of theft. Once all gifts have been unwrapped and the theft has stopped, the Dirty Brickster game ends.

Pre registration is required for Dirty Brickster. Registration opens 8pm Monday 19th Dec using THIS LINK.

Register for 1.30pm session or register for 3pm session. Note that if you can’t select a particular time or if the form no longer loads then sessions are full.

Once you have registered, you are required to arrive with your gift pre-wrapped at your chosen time under the dome on Convention Day.

Trivia Night

Trivia night will be held on Friday 20th January at 6pm at the REB. At the conclusion of Convention Day, feel free to spend an extra hour wandering around the exhibition (or duck out to grab some dinner) before joining Travis for trivia and more!
