As we discussed previously (see links at the end of this post), Build Better Bricks is an online shop run by the guys behind The Brick Show, where you can download custom LEGO instructions (free or for a reasonable fee), and purchase small LEGO building kits. We have talked about some of their products previously (see links at the end of this post), and recently, they added some new items that I thought to let you know about. 🙂
The classic board games pack features twelve custom-printed 1×2, 2×2 and 2×2 round LEGO tiles with board game designs. The games included are as follows: Othello, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Solitaire, Mancala, Parcheesi, Chinese Checkers, Tic-Tac-Toe, 4-In-A-Row (with stand), Dartboard, and Dartboard with darts. These would go really well with the LEGO Modular Buildings, or other LEGO City buildings. The printed game tiles are also available individually, if you only need a couple of pieces and don’t want to buy the whole collection.
Some of the other new items that look great are the custom soda vending machines. Each of the packs includes instructions and 34 new condition LEGO pieces to build one of the four vending machines. Although this is not specified in the description, I believe the decorations are stickers. Dimensions are 2.125″ high x 1.5″ wide x 1.125″ deep for each vending machine. Perfect to add to any minifig-size LEGO creation.
There are also some cool custom arcade games and table games with all the pieces, instructions, and stickers (if applicable) included. They are all minifig-scale, so you could add them to any minifig-size building.
Besides the building kits, Build Better Bricks also carries downloadable building instructions. I didn’t see anything new since we talked about them last time, but if you haven’t seen them already, I recommend checking them out. They have some really great designs.
What do you think? How do you like the board game prints, soda machines, and arcade games? Do you like to add unique custom pieces like these to your LEGO creations? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉
