Medieval Goliath

What do you get when you combine action figures from the Old Testament with a card castle from the Middle Ages?

Answer: A fun game that builds character and teaches a bit of History!

These two sets were part of Eric and Christy's birthday gifts, and they had a lot of fun building the castle and playing a game that Eric created! He thought up a risk-type scoring system using dice to help make the battles between David and Goliath fair. Not only did they have fun battling it out, but Christy's cousins, Lance and Liam, stayed overnight and played the games also! It has been great for all the "kids", but I'm still trying to figure out how to reclaim that part of my counter-top space. Because, you know, it just wouldn't be a good idea to leave the castle and the little plastic guys on the floor where a 15-month-old could act as a real "Goliath"! ;-)
