LUGs

Post by RedRover » Mon Oct 19, 2015 1:32 am

Does anyone have any experience with LEGO user groups? Is it worth joining one?

Every LUG is completely different, in my experience, so it's hard to generalize. Kind of like "has anyone ever been to a restaurant?"

The best use of LUGs, as far as I'm concerned, is to put a bunch of lego nerds in one place so that you can review all of them quickly and decide if there's anyone you want to keep in touch with outside of the LUG.

I was hoping to use it as a platform to either find someone who played brikwars, or at least someone that would be interested.

as far as im am aware, their is one lego lug group called brikwars that specialises in fighting with ur lego
sometimes thaey battle each other in a long standing tradition called a 4 rum war that goes on for eternity and loops back around on causality
skeletons are welcom there but still discriminarted against there by some unruley users that banned me (8=€

I am aware of this, however, it would be nice to be able to meet some people in person

Is there not a whole section dedicated to attempting to set up live combat on the forums? Once i amass my forces to a desired size, perhaps some pretty structures to fight around i would not mind to meet up with live combat myself. The next issue to overcome is the distance everyone has. Some users are in canada, some over in europe/asia it seems... on top of spread out across the US. It makes it harder when you also have to travel far for fun times. Another option i have seen is game stores. Many game stores have game days and are looking for experienced players to lead them

I can only agree with him here, brikwars is by far one of my favorite places on the internet.
