SweBrick III - Relay

This was part of SweBrick III, for other things that took place see here.

Relay building

Simple and fun, this is how it's done:

Gather a group of friends and a pile o' bricks. Tell everybody to start building something on a give theme, like vehicles, space or animals. Decide a number of bricks to attach, in this case 15. When everyone but the last person has attached 15 bricks the creations are passed along to the next person, the last person building drops what's he/she is doing - times up. This is to reduce the wait between relays. When everybody has had a go at each creation they are returned to the first person who tells what he/she intended to build and tries to interpret what was actually made.

Since we were but four persons we sat the limit at 15 bricks so that each creation became about 60 bricks each.

The building has begun, the theme this time is space.

While waiting for Adam and Röde, Tobbe passes time by sorting bricks from the ULV.

Harri, Röde and Adam after four rounds of relay, that'll say 16 constructions.

The first theme was space. What started as a cockpit ended up as jaws on some ROV.


Complete with a BURP!

Exploration vehicle?

This was supposed to become ISS but turned into an scorpion ship with a lamp?

Next theme was animals. Here we see a bird or an insect with jet-engines in the wingtips... It was supposed to be a snail...

The giraffe that mated with an dromedary?

Can't recall what it was meant to bee and not say what it became, but it was hilarious!

Harri went nuts in the end and gave what-ever-it-is a lot of hair...

Sfinx or lion? It became roughly what it was supposed to be...

On the theme vehicles Tobbe tried to make a space rocket but it became more of a strange phone booth?

Adam begun making a roller skate and it turned out pretty good!

Röde intended to make a snow mobile...


On the theme boats we made this lovely submarine, complete with a small boat on tow - blrp!

Catamaran from the movie Waterworld?

Pretty OK sailing boat.

Space is always lurking around the corner in relay building...

Deconstruction of all creations...
