Unless anyone else offers, wishes to, or wants to, I can coordinate this again in 2023.
We usually begin with a choice of theme, so unless there are any objections, we can discuss this here.

Good, I'm rearing to have another crack the BSC  :D

And I always seem to know how to shoehorn the topic into a useable build, so I'm open to any and all suggestions. But just to get this train rolling, here are a few of mine:

- A Workplace
- Interior design
- A place of worship
- Maintainance
- A vehicle

I agree it should be useable, to which end I would argue 'a vehicle' would be a bit narrow for us ancients types. If it could be modified to allow Solomon's (or Omri's) Stables at Megiddo...

Part of the fun (for me at least ;) ) is to find ways of bending the topic in such a way that it fits your plans/ideas/requirements.

I can easily see a vehicle theme being stretched to include a chariot, siege engine, bagage train or indeed a field stable of sorts! :)

A vehicle would be narrow but "transport" might be generic enough.

I agree with this so would be happy with any theme including any of the suggestions so far. Having said that, I also have a few ideas to add to the pile:

"The breach"

"They passed this way"

"A surprise"

"Nature's Bounty"

2022 - Rest
2021 - Difficult Terrain
2020 - Wreck and Ruin
2019 - Vegetation
2018 - Ill-Advised
2017 - Flight
