BSC2022 possible themes
« on: December 26, 2021, 07:11:02 AM »
Here are the suggestions, compiled by Hammers, from previous years. I eliminated used topics, and a couple which were period-specific - or made them wider-ranging; grouped or removed a couple which were very similar to used themes; and added some new ones.

Please do post your suggestions and I will update the list. We'll try to get a decision by the first week of January

Boom
Comic
Lethal
Firepower
Mud
Vertigo
Food
Speed
Peace
Animal
Mineral
Earth
Poisonous
Spotted
Production
Noise
Exit
Small
Defence
War machine
Engine
Using a (Pringles tube/computer fan/box of matches/etc.)
2 by 2 feet game board (or 3 by 3 feet game board)
3D photography backdrop

How about accommodation/resting place (something like that) as a theme?

I only say this as I've an idea for a build that would fit in with it.  ;D

Some interesting ideas already ....”Defence” Or maybe “war machine” appeals personally, but I also like Voltan’s suggestion of “resting place”.

Another broad category to throw into the mix would be “time” ... not period specific and could be interpreted as showing decaying/ageing effects or measuring time...?

'nutha voice here for war machines.

I'm listening.
We should do 'resting place for a war machine made out of a CD'  :D ;) ;)

That's sounds like I could enter a photo of my failed project storage in the cellar, I am sure I had something like that going on at one point....

How about including a 'Feed the troops' to that ????

I think it is important that the theme is broad enough that it can be applied to several periods, and not contain the construction methods.

I like the idea of e.g. defense as that can be interpreted in many ways.
This could be a building, a fortification, a weapon or even a natural feature.

I think ‘Defence’ is quite similar to last years ‘Difficult ground’ so my vote would be ‘Use a’  :)

Keeping tally so far:
Resting place - 4
War machine - 3
Defence - 2 (and one concern it could be similar to last year's difficult terrain)
Use a (whatever) - 2
Speed - 1
Engine - 1
Feeding the troops - 1
Time - 1
Cupcakes and nymphs - 1  ;) :D

As the 'feeding the troops suggestion' was made as something complementary to rest, perhaps this could be considered as rest/recuperation (just as we once had fire/ice). Or plain old rest/food

As for defence: I see the point about potentially replicating difficult terrain; am trying to see if a suitable alternative can be found - perhaps armour/shelter?

Thanks for posting here to all - keep up the discussion  :D

Keep in mind, John, that in the end the theme is up to you. You need to "feel it" yourself to be able to run it for oh so many weeks, you know.

I like the idea of resting place, it can have so many possibilities
