You are not to build on white grass under a yellow sky. You must build on the edge of a table. Then you make odd shapes on the table. Then you sort the big pile of bricks that are in the center of the table (where did the odd shapes go?) by whatever means you see fit.
Did you guys also notice that the plastic bags in the boxes now have numbers. Well, ones that come in medium-large sets. I recently got some of the new castle stuff, and the prisoner transport thingie had numbered bags. Too bad I didn't see that before I dumped everything out
. Still the sets aren't that big. It isn't that hard to figure out that you must open the box, bags, then follow the instructions page by page.
