You Are A Mighty King Indeed by Linaeve Scroll

INSTRUCTIONS: Build a castle of any size out of unusual objects.

Make sure you have all the necessary castle architecture such as a tower, a gate, and a courtyard.

My work space generally has piles ... err, neat stacks .... of books and papers around it (see image 1). When I read this task I looked up and realized that I already had a good portion of a castle completed, right before me. So, I thought I would finish it off and present my finished work to you all here. It isn't the fanciest castle that ever was, but it does have the fun moat, with really cool alligator-substitutes: TMNT! Oh, and Godzilla. I hope you can tell the blue book in the front is a drawbridge.

FYI: this castle belongs to the Prince of Wales. He's in the picture: extra points if you can see him.

what I saw...

what I saw...

was the makings of a castle. Look! there are like three turrets already!


Boxes

We always have lots of cardboard laying around


Moat

And these pebbles made for great water beads, to make the moat


A Fortress!

A Fortress!

I tried to use the natural symmetry of the work-space-terrain to create a more robust fortress, with many towers, a central sanctuary, a draw bridge, and a monster-guarded moat.

These guys were just hanging out in the toy chest, so they were excited to be given a new job: guarding the castle. (See "Toy Hacking" for more fun plastic-figure adventures!)

I like that you took advantage of the natural topography of your desk to build something new and exciting.
