Make Your Own Medieval Battlefield
From the Series Tabletop Wars
Make models of castle buildings and little knights, and plan a medieval battle scene that uses the mini-launchers from other books in this series. All you need are everyday items and some adult help. Deploy your launchers on both sides of the castle, jump to your stations, and attack. Bite-sized facts explain how these parts of a castle worked in history too!
