The Duke of Chess and the King and Queen of Checkers
The King comes to visit his most loyal duke at the duke's home and finds that though they share a love of board games, the Duke's loyalties lie elsewhere.

Such a fun idea. I love the giant chess pieces and lots of little architectural details. Also the pairing of that shield with the checkered flag was a great idea. Does this close up with those hinge parts, or is that just to make a connected U-shape to the room?

No, it doesn't close up at the moment. The hinges just allow for the flexibility to change angles.

I like the idea though. I wonder what it would look like in a circle so I might just give it a try by adding a couple more sections and then a door.

Very neat build, Durazno, the large chess pieces are great, and the round window and other architectural details are excellent as well! :wink: Great idea with the King and Queen of Checkers too!

The building layout is really attractive. Great use of color as well with the stained glass windows providing a nice focal point.
Superb entry :D
