December Set Draft

December 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm CST

$40.00

Stop in on Sunday, December 11’th and do a set draft with us!  We will be splitting up 3 sets of the Detective’s Office #10246.  So that’s going to be a total of 6,786 bricks to choose from!  You must pre-register with the store by signing up in-store or calling us at (815) 582-4220 and paying over the phone with a credit card.

What is a set draft?

A set draft is an event in which New-in-box sets are opened up and sorted out by individual piece types and colors.  The participants then choose random numbers from a container to choose their draft order.  (Think of it like a sports draft)  You then take turns, in the order in which you picked, to choose individual cups of bricks.  This is the draft phase.

What is the purpose?

The intent of a set draft is to collect bricks and minifigures for you to use in your own creations (MOCs).  A good set draft will consist of a set that has unique, hard to find pieces… or those of high demand.  It is a great way to acquire awesome pieces without having to by the entire set.

What do I need to bring?

Only the amount due for the specific set (listed above).  You MUST pre-register for the event as spots will be limited, based on the amount of sets purchased.

What should I do before the draft?

Just like any sports draft, you will need to do some scouting.  The best source for individual parts lists is Bricklink.com.  Create a list of your top 10-25 items you would like from the set.  These will be your “first round picks” so to speak.  Scratch them off your list as you or someone else acquires them, so you know what to aim for.

Anything else?

I’m glad you asked!  You may pre-register for more than one spot for the same price (listed above).  That will give you 2 picks each round instead of just 1.  You may also team up with someone to blend your lists together and re-distribute them afterwards.  It’s a great way to help out a friend who may also be looking for specific pieces, but may have drawn a bad drafting number.
