Can you give us a picture of something within that height? Because I'm confused it you mean studs tall snotted are studs tall measured in stacked bricks.

Can we use a plate that has 2 4-Stud long sides and the other two sides are a curve? (It is basically a fourth of a circle)

I don't think so. If you don't have a 4X4 I'm sure you could put two 2X4s together.

As I said before, I will be giving everyone a theme. I think I'll edit that in the rules now.

The first one is generally considered a "brick".

A LEGO brick is as tall as 3 LEGO plates. So when he said bricks, he means the bricks.

So 24 bricks high = 72 plates high.

Another note: a tile is basically a plate with no studs.


From there we can have 2x8 bricks, 4x4 plates, and 1x6 tiles.

For next time it might be good to have concrete rules for this. Like no piece can overhang completely, some part of it must be within the 4X4 area, and no overhang can exceed 1/4 inch (which is a the tiniest bit less than a stud). Just a thought for the future.

Not a bad idea, I may clarify this in my next round.
