This is Bricksben's Mini Castle and it's inspired a bunch of us to build our own micro castles. Even better, we've decided that everyone should be able to build their own castle! Are you up for a challenge?

Hahahaha. Sourcing myself is somewhat hilarious, but something I hope I will be able to do more often.

Looking forward to more micro castles! bounce

This is not an entry. Cos I'm obviously not eligible to win the prize since I'm sponsoring it.
But oh well, here's me just sharing my Disney Cinderella Castle Smile

OK so here's mine, made utilising jumpers and offsets as the main concept. Centering a 3-stud arch on a 8-stud base was .... interesting!

Ok.. this is my entry Smile
Working around the idea of a fantasy castle. So my castle is siting on a rock/cliff, with a water surrounding it and a waterfall by the side.

(Still digging for bricks to build the actual thing, hope can make it in time)

Here's my entry!
Something evil is brewing...
- Imposing statues greet you at the gates.
- Some evil magic is brewing and pumping at the lower parts of the castle. Powered by a mysterious green energy.
- The evil master resides at the top of the castle, with his powerful aura glowing as he oversees the land below him.

Here's my humble attempt at a "Castle on a Cloud"...

For those who know the musical reference, Cosette's in the tower at the top and there's definitely no floors to sweep... ^^

The results are out! Our panel of 3 judges, comprising of Eugene (Master Shifu), Jeffrey (BricksBen) & Alvin (Chongcheng) have made their decisions & here are are your top 5 scores!

#1 Crayonboi's Floating Castle 8/10 Micro Castle Building Challenge 10219166483_1b8a45f5b0
Score: 8 points

"Effective use of repetition using simple elements to create a vertical tower. Love the arch opening – and that waterfall!" - Jeffrey

"Good idea to break the norm & elevate the castle with landscape on a relatively small area" - Eugene


#2 Playtime's Jumper Castle 8/10 Micro Castle Building Challenge 20131011
Score: 3 points

"Nice use of levers and tile with clips for the drawbridge. The offsetting with jumper plates works well to pack detail in a small scale" - Jeffrey

"Interesting effort to break the normal castle topology with (a) traditional bottom-up build" - Eugene


#3 ZeroZeroZero's entry #2 8/10 Micro Castle Building Challenge 10229072114_80f18f48c8_b
Score: 3 points


#4 Evo's Castle with Stair 8/10 Micro Castle Building Challenge Image10
Score: 2 points

"Good effort in packing details and maintaining visual balance in an asymmetric form. Also refreshing to see a blue and white castle." - Jeffrey


#5 Nukescientist's Evil Castle 8/10 Micro Castle Building Challenge 10245363743_ff741b5364
Score: 2 points

"Good use of various parts at different directions to create a cutout of the normal castle topology" - Eugene
