What's this about ?
LEGO® teamed up with BrickLink to bring some creative designs to the market in a way never before possible. The Design Program for Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) is hosted by bricklink.com and supported by the LEGO Group and a ton of fresh Bricks.
Creators from around the world submitted designs that went through a thorough review process. BrickLink received over 400 submissions, and 16 finalists were chosen from 9 different countries. The theme for the contest was “Celebrating 60 years of the LEGO® brick“.
All creations for the contest had to be build and submitted digitally with the STUDIO 2.0 software by BrickLink. LEGO designers and BrickLink have reviewed the designs. Selected Finalists can be supported online by pre-ordering their creations.
BrickLink will produce this set. It comes with brand new LEGO bricks provided by the LEGO Group. The Boxing will carry the “60 Years LEGO brick” Logo. BrickLink develops Boxing and Instructions. This is not an official LEGO set. This set is exclusively sold via Bricklink.
There is no official age recommendation for this set. The contest ames for adults. But I’d say it’s a 12+. It always depends on the experience of the individual builder.
Yes, free shipping during pre-ordering is worldwide. When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country.

There had to be a view changes in order to make this design available. The edges of the grass fields have been straightened out. One minifig has a printed shirt. And the chessboard was removed.
