How a Danish Toy Company Built America
Recently BZPower member Chronicler06 swung by the forums
to let us know about a recent episode of a show on The History Channel that many here might find interesting. The Toys That Built America Season 2, Episode 4: Brick by Brick
covers the Erector set and the LEGO building toys that followed it. Let us know if you've seen the episode, and if so, what did you think?

Tonight we'll be heading back over to the BZPower Twitch channel
to play some more LEGO The Incredibles! Stop by starting around 7:30 PM Eastern as we clean up Municiberg and find all sorts of hidden collectibles. Pretty soon we'll be diving back into the campaign to wrap up the remaining achievements on the path to 100% completion.

LEGO VIP Weekend 2022
It's that time of year; the week before Black Friday, LEGO launches their own special weekend of deals
for VIP members. To start off, you get double VIP points on all purchases. (If you visit a LEGO Brand retail store, a handful of expensive sets have 5X VIP points when purchasing them too.) If you'd rather redeem some VIP points, you can get more bang for your buck with some discount offers on specific sets. Beyond that, there are also three Gifts-With-Purchases for when you spend $250, $170, or $65 (the latter limited to select themes.) Obviously not all of these deals will appeal to everybody, but if you wanted to pick up some bricks for holiday presents, it'll be worthwhile to check out.

Bionicle: Quest for the Masks Cube and Draft Format in Beta
Two years ago (nearly to the day!) we let you know
that BZPower member TheVirre2000 was looking for playtesters for a new version of the classic Bionicle: Quest for the Masks card game. They've been busy in that time and have now released the gametype for Tabletop Simulator in the Steam Workshop
! You can head over to the new topic in the forums
discussing the release to share your feedback and learn more about the draft style format of the game, as well as more information on how to play it. I love the creativity of the Bionicle community with projects like this!

The LEGO Group Breaks Ground on New Billund Office
The makers of our favorite construction toys seem to be all about more practical construction these days. Last week it was announced that The LEGO Group broke ground on another state-of-the-art Billund campus focusing on an inspiring and playful working environment
. This building will house 1,900 engineering, quality and production employees and of course will have as minimal of an environmental impact as possible, with the target being a LEED Platinum certification. Along with new factories in Vietnam and the United States, they seem to be investing a lot of their recent profits into growing the company's footprint around the world.
