Fun, games, and club business are to be had. If you have something you want to show off please bring it. 

Bricks on the Dollar will be selling bulk used LEGO by the pound and will have more available than ever.

The build challenge will be to build something that transforms. It doesn’t have to be a Transformer in the classic sense, but it should convert from one object into another object.

PennLUG club meeting June 11

Hello all.
Our June meeting will be held on the 11th and hosted by Chris Edwards. As usual our meeting start time is 11am. The address has been sent out in the meeting email, if you have not received it let me know. Here is more info from Chris.
But first, Heroica!
If anyone is feeling heroic, I would like to run a game of my own special Advanced Heroica after (most of) the meeting is done. Probably starting in late afternoon sometime, and you can expect the game to take at least four hours.

Please RSVP to let me know if you’re interested in playing. There will be room for 4 or 5 heroes. Others are welcome to watch, but beware of spoilers if you do! Depending on interest level, I may need to use a lottery system to pick players.

For anyone who isn’t familiar, I made my own Advanced rules for the LEGO board game Heroica, complete with custom cards and all-new scenarios. It’s a cooperative dungeon-crawl board game. No prior knowledge of Heroica is required.
Please RSVP about the meeting in general, also. E-mail, Facebook, PennLUG forums, Flickr are all fine ways to RSVP.
The build challenge for this month:

Gardens or Space Gardens

Build a garden scene, realistic or fantastical. Yes, there can be snails in the garden. Or tractors. Don’t just slap a bunch of flowers on a baseplate, though–that’s too boring!
And as always, come out, relax, talk about LEGO and other random things, bring any models you want to show off, and have a good time.
