Draft

Draft – First played before BrickCon existed. Introduced by Mark Sandlin.

To participate, bring an unopened copy of the LEGO® set(s) listed below.

Draft 1 – TBD
Draft 2 – TBD

A Draft is where several copies of the same set are opened and sorted into individual piles of unique shape or color, and each player takes one pile for their own.

To participate each player brings one (or more*) unopened copy of the official Draft set(s). Players discuss and agree on the combinations and separations [(1) and (2) below] before the drafting begins.

Everyone cooperates to sort all the pieces into piles of like elements. Players draw lots and, in order, pick up the pile they want. Play continues until all pieces are claimed. At the end of each draft cycle the draft order reverses (example: 1-2-3-4-5-5-4-3-2-1-1-2…).

* Multiple copy drafting is at the discretion of the Draft Coordinator.

(1) Combinations – Elements are often paired or naturally ‘go’ with others. It is common to combine these elements into groupings. It is also usual that the combined groups are then divided into the number of lots equal to the number of pieces combined. Example: A pair of left and right wedge pieces. The lefts are combined with the rights and two (equal sized) lots are formed. Each (new) lot contains both L and R parts. This can be used for any combination of parts – Minifigs (legs/torso/head/etc.), wheels/tires, ball/sockets, etc.

(2) Separations – Sometimes a part has a high quantity in a set (say 5 or 10 per set). Discussion is opened to separate very large lots into smaller, multiple (evenly sized) lots. This allows more people to get some of that part. Also, there are some very desirable parts in a set that “everyone” wants. This type of part may be separated into multiple lots if the group agrees. The extreme on this is where “Everyone just keeps THIS part.”

You provide set(s). Unlimited participation. No need to sign up.
