Our dashing knights await the start of the tournament
When not at war the Knights challenged each
other to keep their fighting skills sharp.
Before the tournament each knight designed his own coat of arms from felt shapes and glued them to his tunic. They also designed and colored cardboard shields and received some sort of weapon of war.
The Ladies decided sitting around looking pretty wasn't all it
was cracked up to be, so they got in on the action!
I wouldn't mess with these girls!
Storming the castle
The Knights (and their friends) had to jump on their trusty steed...
...attack the castle with canonballs...
...slay the dragon guarding the captives...
All these proceedings took place under the watchful eye of the Queen. She always travels with a chest of gold and jewels in case of an emergency or a really great sale! While cheering on the contestants a very large and very ugly dragon swooped down and grabbed her treasure!
The ugly brute carried the gold to his lair.
The Queen's loyal subjects worked in pairs to try and recover it.
One would divert his attention while the other recovered.
Lady Total de Saster delivers the gold to the Queen!
