LEGO Club Challenge 3

For this challenge we focused on  games.  We went back to the 12 by 12 plates, but this time we created a marble maze.  The maze could start from the outside and end on the outside or start from the outside and end in the middle.  Everyone got super creative and added bridges, arches, caves, jumps and more.  Next, everyone got a chess piece as inspiration to create that piece out of LEGO for our chess game board. The finished product was awesome!  We had a drawing for Lego movie posters and mini-figs and you can look forward to a similar drawing next time.  Come to our next meeting Saturday, February 22nd from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm we will build something awesome!
