31203 isn’t just an enormous build, testing your patience and precision with 2×2 tiles, it also offers a lot of the same features that a real-life map does. The main colours are white tiles for land and blue and green for the sea. However, pink and tan tiles also show the depth of the oceans, adding extra pops of colour to the build.
Similar to other LEGO Art sets, you can build 31203 in a ‘brick-by-numbers’ style, following detailed instructions that show you exactly where to place each tile. You will construct the map in smaller sections, making it ideal to come back to over time, rather than trying to complete it all in one sitting. Although, of course, you can try and place all 11,695 pieces in one go if you fancy the challenge.
31203 World Map is selling for £229.99 / $249.99 / €249.99 right now. We’ve got all you need to know about the build in our in-depth review here, including what it’s like to build with literally thousands of 1×1 plates.
