I only sort by size, never by color. Sifting through a bucket of black pieces for a 2x2 tile is no fun.

Funny enough, after seeing the LEGO movie the first time, it really did trigger some self-reflection regarding this subject for me. I constantly have to hold back on regulating all the brick mess in the house, and yeah I have a few sets that I want to stay together forever and never touch, but I have resolved to keep them high on the shelf and away from sticky hands.

But its tough, building a badass set with the kids and seeing it destroyed months later. But then they make other MOCs with those parts and I calm down...

All that to say, I had a panic moment in the movie where I questioned if I was Lord Business, only without the KRAGLE lol deep thoughts in a kids movie :wink:

My boys (8,6) and I have been having blowouts the past few yrs w/regards to the lego carnage throughout the house. After school started back a few months ago, I finished decking/framing our attic out and split the space. 1/3 for storage, 2/3 for lego (about 600 sq ft). It's been awesome! Can now sequester the lads away in the castle keep and let the wreckage ensue!

Through a amazon mixup I now have an extra yellow submarine.
Anyone interested? Below list price, like $40? Sealed with the minifigs.
Fun build!

Snagged this game at the FLGS today for a game night with the fam tonight, anyone else played it before?

Hoping its like the creator games they had from LEGO years ago, but better.
