About This Episode:
This scene is a perfect fit for Bo’s question below.
Our characters here, Marie and Paulo have decided to check out of the apocalypse. In the book they are going to use a razor blade instead of a knife as their check out tool but LEGO has no such thing. And with the mini-figs not having elbows it was a bit of a challenge to convey that a blade was going to be going for a wrist but I THINK I got the point across. I think the only way I could have gotten a blade to lay against her wrist was if I used a sword.
Discussion Question: From Bo
July 23rd’s discussion about “saving the last bullet for yourself” got me thinking about the guy with the empty rifle, Murphy, I think? Of the readers that are counting on a firearm to get them through the zombie apocalypse (and I know that you have a lot of juvenile readers, as well as foreign readers without ready access to weapons), what will they do for ammunition? Do they have firearms of common calibers (9mm NATO, .40 S&W, 5.56 NATO, 7.62×39, 7.62×51, etc.) like Murphy? Do they have sufficient stored ammunition? Are they counting on “scrounging” some? Will they hope to barter for it with other survivors? Will any of them keep an empty weapon, hoping to find ammunition later (like Murphy)? What about the weight? Is it worth it to pack a ten pound rifle, hoping later to come across a cache of .308/7.62 NATO?
