When opening a new box, most of the pieces are in closed plastic bags, and sometimes inside those plastic bags is another plastic bag for smaller pieces.
I find the pieces, for the most part, rather random. Sometimes a particular brick shows up in more than one bag.
It seems like an odd way to make sure all of the pieces are there in the box, and yet, a box is rarely, if ever, missing a brick.
Any rhyme or reason to how Lego packages the pieces for a new set?
