Ok, so here's the deal. The judges are only human... except for Ocean, we're still not sure about him yet.

Now, we already have a HUGE list of categories and if we end up only going with 64 players in round 2, then we're all set to go.

HOWEVER...

If you guys want that extra round you've all been talking about, then we're going to need a little help. Your mission over the next two weeks is to come up with FULL category descriptions for us to plunder.

That's right, we're TOTALLY going to steal them right from under your noses and give no credit whatsoever.

So, no "chatter" or "Oh, that's a good idea" in this thread. Simply write out a category idea with a complete discription and submit it here. If we like it, we'll use it in one of the matches (and none of you will know we're going to use it until you see it in a match up).

Incomplete ideas (like: "Hey, how about some kind of Star Wars thing.") will not be used.

Macro Figure - Build a character at larger than minifig scale. This can be miniland scale or even larger, if you desire. The more creative and detailed the better. A vignette or diorama to showcase the character is welcome, though the figure should be the main focus.

If you guys want that extra round you've all been talking about, then we're going to need a little help. Your mission over the next two weeks is to come up with FULL category descriptions for us to plunder.

That's right, we're TOTALLY going to steal them right from under your noses and give no credit whatsoever.

So, no "chatter" or "Oh, that's a good idea" in this thread. Simply write out a category idea with a complete discription and submit it here. If we like it, we'll use it in one of the matches (and none of you will know we're going to use it until you see it in a match up).

Incomplete ideas (like: "Hey, how about some kind of Star Wars thing.") will not be used.


I want ninjas!!!!! Wait, here's a good one, my other specialty, Battle machines made out of lego! Wheee!!!

How would it look?

Viewing the past from the future. Build a scene showing a testament of the past, but set in the future. As in - how would stone henge look in the year 3000? Or a roman circus in 25000? Your subject must be from the past, no ruined Eifel Tower or post-apocalyptic Empire State building. Bizarre and hilarious future uses are a plus!

-Election Day-

:Build a Moc of people voting for something that you don't normaly vote on like whether to put salami or ham on your sandwich the more outrageous the better and instead of the judges judging everyone that didn't make it to this round vote on which one they like better by posting a comment on the one they chose but the comment has to say the word vote to vote.

-What's in a name?-

Paul Klee is a painter who uses characters in his paintings. Make a creation using only characters of your oponents name. You can go into Lego graffiti, stacking blocky characters or mosaic, anything is fine, but make sure they're readable. Be creative!

You know, I have a feeling that if these categories are accepted, we won't be getting the ones we chose...

 Group admin 
Just so everyone knows, we've already placed all the categories in each (numbered) slot for the entire games all the way through to and including the finals.

In other words, all of the categories have been chosen and each matchup has already been decided (minus who the players are obviously).

But say you're player number... 7. You will be competing against player number 8 and your matchup for round two has already been chosen. If you win, round three already has a category and so on.

However... if you'd like to continue putting categories in here then feel free. The side games may need categories and I'm sure that the admin of that is going to love being able to pick from this list to make his job that much easier.

(Yes, the admin of the side games has been chosen. No, I won't tell you who it is yet but you could probably guess if you tried. They'll be getting things ready and all will be announced soon enough)

"Wait, what did you say", where the mod types in a phrase, and the contestants make something, where the name/content of the moc sounds simmilar. Like in Despicable Me, where Dr.Nefario, herd "boogie robots", and "fart-gun",instead of "COOKIE" robots, and "DART" gun.

almost everyone has a lawn... build a replica of whatever mows you lawn, tills your garden, plows or blows your snow or grows the food you eat (equipment wise not the people).

trains near you. trains are everywhere, so build a replica (working or not) of the engine or the whole TRAIN.

what keeps your car/vehicle going... build a GARAGE that has people and equipment that will keep your beloved car/truck going.

CAR COMPONENTS... transmission, engine, differentials, steering, clutch, brakes, and so on.

construction equipment... what you see at construction sites.

you dream car... whatever your dream ride is, everyone has one.
