Brickworld 2018 AKA FluCon2018



It was the best of times and the worst of times...

Best yet worst case BW yet...


PreBrickworld road trip was fantastic with Alec, Evan and sprinkling of Caleb. We Saw a lot of friends on our way and escaped from devious rooms ... except that last one. Stupid key in clock.


We prepared good for Brickworld. Brought enough drinks for all, got Simon games figured out, loads of extra surprises, a few good builds....


But then we got hit my the plague. Never in all my years have I seen something take out so many.... if I didn’t know better it was a mega virus designed wipe us out... all of us....


Things kinda went down hill from there ... the event was a bit of a struggle to keep going... from 6 presentations to trying to coherently explain Simon games haha.... and by the end I totally forgot to do half the surprises, gofts and swag bricks i has planned for :(


I’m really sorry.


It was als the first time at a convention that I didn’t win or even get nominated for an award.... either everyone is getting better or I’m getting worse :) but it doesn’t matter, I got Best Simon (I’m assuming I’m the only one?) and a magical BW heart 💜

But seeing all the drama this year around awards and the realization that if I’m not nominated, someone else is - I think I’m happier just building for fun, not awards (cause let’s face it people love building for awards).


But I did get to see everyone again and finally got to met others and did get to do some quality games and LOZ building ...


My main disappointment is not having time to actually chat. I’d say hi to someone and wanted to talk later and never did get to really talk to people...




Next year I need to plan more food outings with different groups. And not 9am breakfasts ;)


Thank you all for the great talks, great memories, great friends and Great gifts.


Sorry I wasn’t on the game this year
