This time I tried about a half of a handful of one color only, same time limit.

I like this a lot, it's very bare yet has a lot of shapes and interesting coonections.

Also on another brain-wave, maybe you could adapt these 5 minute speed builds into a supplement for your micro space rules?

Haha. What, make a fleet in 30 minutes, play for another 30, then call it a day?

I'm not sure that's grounds for an entire new supplement, but I'll see about throwing it in there.

Maybe I should use that as my basis for ease of play. Say it should take you upwards of 30 minutes, if you start with nothing but a pile of bricks and a pencil, to be able to play.

That does it. Here, Oloth, take this.

And I'm going to bed. I'll give this a shot after I finally finish color-sorting my backlog of lego.

As part of my royal inauguration, I took part in another sprint.

You know the drill.

Okay, this one I had to go overtime for, because it was my first time attempting to S.N.O.T. (bad call on my part) and it was giving me trouble, plus I figured as long as I was going overtime, might as well dig for parts. Overall, took me approximately fifteen minutes instead of five.

On the other hand...

RAILGUN CRUISER.

I also tacked on a MUCH better engine bit, but didn't do it until after I took pics. Perhaps you guys will see it eventually.

Think fast... I honestly don't know.

But as you saw with the last one, don't try anything REALLY intricate. Just put stuff together.

Both of my truly symmetrical ships required either overtime or double the time limit, so...

And the briks you pull out are important. Theme box doesn't mean just color: it applies to the stylistic elements of a fleet. So you'll notice that the yellow and bley ships had a lot of minifigs hands, since that's part of their theme.

The light gray ones I made from my "greeble box", but that's fairly obvious.

Greeble box... gotta get me one of those.

Oh, and nice ships.
