Build a Castle with Paul Farrell
To celebrate the publication of Paul Farrell’s building card-set Build a Castle, here’s a video to get you started on the basics of stacking these cleverly designed cards up and out and – once you get the hang of it – any way you like, really. Grab your family members and friends and let the creative fun begin!
What’s in the box?
Turrets, ramparts, portcullises, arrow-slit windows, walls, roofs, flags and more – create your own medieval masterpiece.
Each box contains 64 cards (105 x 69 mm) in a variety of graphic designs. Clever paper engineering allows you to slot the cards together, building up and out in whichever way you like! Also included is a short booklet, with information on the architecture of castles and suggestions of card building methods. The instructions tell you how to build a castle, or you can let your imagination run riot and design your own!
Renowned illustrator Paul Farrell has designed these cards in a cool, graphic style – turning the image of a castle into a work of art.
