Decoration mostly. They use them to hold up shelves and the like, or to fill space. Lots of uses I guess.

they do not use them with DF, weird people. :D
their loss... :-)

I can order any of the colors they have available. Fifty black is the usual order, but I can order pretty much any combo.

If one wanted to get bricks of different colors, like 25 black and 25 brown or grey in one shipment would that work out ok? or does the vendor preship in lots of 50.

Wow. Have you really needed that many?
I put my CBS town and Castle up on blocks so that I can have cellars and sewers and a moat. 100 covers 160 square inches which works well with my layout.
So you are using them mostly as 4" tall rather than 2" tall?
No, I lay them flat. I did bad math 4x8 are 32 sq. In. So, I can cover 3200 square inches. Figures, I'm an engineer. :-( Any way, I have a lot and really love them.

Don’t recall if this has been discussed - but what is the (real) purpose for these blocks in Japan?

I would also recommend ordering in groups of at least 25. Shipping starts at 2000 yen (20 bucks more or less) and goes up form there. 50 is a good amount and comes very neatly packed in a box. I just tear off label one and put on label two. The shipping box also makes a very nice storage box, being exactly the right size.
So I take it buying 50 one time and then another 50 later is the same as buying 100 all at once from a shipping stand point?
Yes. They usually come in neat boxes of fifty though I did get a messy box of 70 once. When I ordered 100 they came in two boxes of fifty.
