I love the various games at Maker Faires, from the Power Racing Series to the Figure 8 Pedal Car Races to combat robots. At this year’s Maker Faire Detroit, Nick Bricksly… er Nick Britsky of i3 Detroit is hosting the Brick Challenge Game Show. It’s a “fast-paced multi-challenge game show that tests contestants’ knowledge, skill, and strategy as two teams face off in the first-ever game show centered on everyone’s favorite building block.” Shows are running tomorrow, Sunday, starting at 11:30am, 12:15pm, 1:00pm and 1:45pm in Henry Ford Museum’s Anderson Theater. About today’s shows, the Lego top hat sporting Bricksly said on Facebook: “Brick Challenge Day 1: Success! Great turn out and everyone had fun. Time for sleep.”
