The Lego Challenge is coming to the end of phase 1 (Lego acquisition) with the Pirate Party getting in thanks to Stuart Biggs.
Stuart brought a another big box of basic blocks.
For those coming in late there’s two things going on here:
- 1) We need donations of Lego (or Lego contributed for return on a by-the-kilogram basis as we don’t plan to separate them back out again)
2) So we can then spend August and September in the pub watching ACT election candidates trying to make the most impressive possible creation with the available bricks.
It should be noted we’re not doing one giant sit down with all the candidates at once (fun as that could be); but a series run over many nights with a YouTube video of what they make and what comes of it.
We’re not taking any more donations that haven’t had prior arrangements made and will be kicking off soon.
So far the donating tally is Two Liberal, Four Labor, Two members of the public (Thank you Ayrton and Penelope), One Green and Two Pirate (Boo Bullet Train!).
Candidates who have not donated will still be very welcome to participate in the build phase.
We also note that there’s been enough lego donated to allow for a (non-candidate) assistant to be recruited for maximal lego-ness.
