What's all this then? Read on...
Whilst we wait for a new Bonus Ball raffle to start, lets have a bit of fun to win some Lego House goodies.
First up the prize pool of Lego House Exclusives.
Polybag, a #3850060
Store Minibuild (Aquarium 1) and a #3850061
Store Minibuild (Aquarium 2)
Now, if you’ve been following the Lego House preview visit thread, you’ll know about this - but if you don’t, here’s the background on the polybag and significance of it.
With just 6 2x4 bricks, there are 915,103,765 possible combinations that the bricks can be built into. Impressive eh? When you leave the Lego House you are assigned a random number that is unique to your visit. A card is printed that shows your number and the combination that it relates to - this is your signature in visual form. There are enough combinations to keep them going for years and years so there’ll be no duplicates (assuming the system and database hasn’t been built by their website coders!). You get to take your card and a polybag (that is being produced on site) as a memento of your visit. I took the liberty of purloining an extra to give away here :-)
So, how do you win the prize pool? It's very simple… I will post the rules and question after I’ve peeled my spuds and get them on the boil (it’s Sunday after all). Nobody post.... I'll be back shortly.
Rule 1 - if you’ve been on any of the preview days or if you’re going to one of the forthcoming fan events or opening week, then please don’t enter. I’d prefer this prize to be for people who won’t have the chance to get to the house to get their own copies. I think that’s a fair call don’t you???
Rule 2 - don’t eBay the prize! I could do that myself ;-)
Obviously I can’t enforce the rules in any way, so just play fair (and play well!)
What you need to do.
As I’ve already published my own card with number on it, I can’t use it for this draw - but another Bricksetter has kindly agreed to let me use his for the big question. Have a look at this signature combination:-
All you need to do is guess the number that this combination relates to. That means the answer is a random number between 1 and 915,103,765. It could be a small one, It could be a massive one. It could be in the middle. Who knows? At the end of the draw, the closest number wins.
Competition closes 8pm GMT 31st August. I will post a picture of the mystery Bricksetter's signature card shortly after this time and then work out who’s won.
Hopefully I can keep on top of the entries by means of a database so a quick sort should help ID the winner quickly. I’ll post the prize out to wherever soon after that.
Good luck everyone!
Not a random number, it's the letters in Lego but using the position in the alphabet. Although, if it were me, I wouldn't give away the set if it had that number...so this guess is pointless really. Good luck everyone else!
Thanks for doing this Chris.
My guess: 800,858,686
Thanks for organising this, good luck everybody!
