Ikea Assembly Wars

big battle over small matters
  (+3)

  [vote for,
against]

Two teams are presented with large two piles of mixed up Ikea components but with no instructions or images of what products these make up into when fully assembled.

The task is for each team to make a viable product out of the pieces. The winning team is the one who completes the task first. Teams have to bargain/exchange/negotiate/battle/deny access to the necessary components.

       Does it have to be an item from the catalog, like a bed, table or kitchen unit, or can it be - just as an example, you understand - a trebuchet ? If so, [+].

       I guess there are different versions of this but I think the rigor comes from making a perfectly finished catalogue product.

       /different versions/ I like very much the idea of Ikea parts as Legos: building blocks. I have not assembled Ikea stuff. Are the parts standardized one item to the next?

       Aren't you the lucky one.   

       // Are the parts standardized one item to the next? //   

       Seemingly, they aren't even standardized within the one item ...

       You'd end up with a rickety, unstable assembly that would maybe work OK for a while, but then bits would start to drop off. Oh, wait …

       Perhaps David Attenborough could host a bio-version of this. Contestants are given a pile of bones, internal organs, muscles and skins, and have to reassemble a real endangered species within the timeframe. Or even within the time.

       We wonder if they do a version that's lethal to cats, too ?
