AFOL Architecture Events Coming To Barnes and Noble Stores

Do you ever feel left out as you watch your kids assemble the LEGO Monthly Mini Builds? Do you wonder why there is nothing out there for you… the 14 and over crowd? Well, be sad no more! If you haven’t heard, Barnes and Noble stores are hosting AFOL Architecture Events from January 16 to 31! If you love to build and are bummed you can never do a LEGO store mini build, this is the event for you!

First off, you’re probably wondering “AFOL what?” Well, it’s as simple as this. AFOL stands for “Adult Fan of LEGO”. If you’re reading this blog, you are most likely an AFOL… or at least a closet AFOL, masquerading behind the “Oh, I just buy these sets for my kids” excuse.

AFOL Architecture Events Coming To Barnes and Noble Stores

There’s not much information on the event site for Barnes and Nobles, but they do have the following description listed for each event date:

Adults and teenagers (ages 14 and up) are invited to help build our new LEGO Skyline in-store display and enjoy a LEGO Architecture build with Architecture Studio bricks afterward.

I’m assuming each skyline will be the skyline for the major city near your location. For example, I suspect we will be building the Atlanta skyline and probably get a micro Atlanta skyline to build and take home. Again, just speculation.

  1. I would so love to attend this event! However, the closest one is 800 miles away. I need to go down to my Barnes and Nobles location and ask them why they are not participating in this event. :-(

    1. That is such a bummer! I’m sorry to hear that it is so far away.

      If you do go to your local BN, let me know what they say. I’d love to hear about how they are selecting their locations for running this event.
