Bionicle Card Game at BrickFair

Posted by Black Six , in LEGO Con Jul 28 2012 · 414 views

BrickFair
Story time!

Back in the shrouded mists of the past, there was a Bionicle fan named Carl. Carl really loved Bionicle, so much that he began creating his own card game. He contacted LEGO to tell them about his game and to offer it to them to use.

Then LEGO cancelled Bionicle, and everyone was sad.

But wait! The people at LEGO thought, 'Wow, this guy is really dedicated, we should get him in touch with our ace Community Coordinator for North America, Kevin Hinkle.'

And then Kevin Hinkle was all like, 'Wow, that's a really impressive game, have you heard of this thing called BrickFair? There are tons of other fans like you out there and you should go share it with them. Here, talk to this crazy guy from this site called BZPower.'

Carl talked to this Black Six character, and he was impressed with the lad's dedication and enthusiasm. He agreed to spread word of the game and encourage others to learn its rules at BrickFair and play against each other, until only the strongest remained alive. (Okay, maybe not that last part (Two men enter, one man leaves!).)

----

So yeah, if you're coming to BrickFair, and you like games, make sure you talk to Carl and learn to play his Bionicle card game. I hear it will be a lot if fun.

Does he by any chance have a website? I'm interested, but can't make it to BrickFair this year.

Not that I know of. I don't think he's joined here yet either. But when I meet him next week I'll see if he's interested in posting about it on BZP.

Wow! That sounds pretty cool. I'm very impressed just from hearing about it. Can't wait to meet this Carl guy!

I can be a bit of a sucker for card games in general, so I may just give in to this... assuming it's all being done at a time I'm 100% available, lol.

But, of course, utilizing the internet to spread his game around would be a great idea, I'd think. :P (Be it his own website, or a BZPower thing... as I think we do have a good chunk of people who enjoy BIONICLE here... and numerous people who like card games)

Can't wait to get out there~

Nope. Like I said Carl is not a member here.

it would be nice if someone could take a video or something of the card game in action, so those not going to brickfair can see it.
