This year I have been watching season 2 of LEGO Masters.
Tonight was a competition to build a castle hanging off of a wall.
The brothers from my county made it into the finale which will be next week. I will definitely be looking forward to it.
Each week the show has me thinking of one of my hobbies.
I discovered Ankerstein about 16 years ago during a trip to Jena, Germany. They had an exhibition at a shopping mall.
The boxes come with layer plans for building different structures, but many builders come up with their own designs.
The stones can be used over and over again as they are simply stacked on top of each other. Sometimes it takes a really steady hand to place the blocks, and I have also had a few collapses when I have bumped the building or table.
There is no big Ankerstein Masters competition, but there is a worldwide club of Ankerstein builders. See: Mededelingenblad
I will be looking forward to next Tuesday nights to see who wins the Lego Masters championship, but I will stick to my stones for my own buildings
