The Builders: Middle Ages Review

Overview: The story: You could hear the yelling from afar. Two blocks away, a right turn, through the alleyway, and then in the middle of the town square stood three men, arguing. Without a roof, there’s no building at all! At least no building I want to live in, with all the rain pouring in. I’m definitely the most important builder, the roofer said. No, no, no! I’m most important builder. I’m good with […]

Printemplaying: 2014 Solitaire Print and Play Contest

Valley of the Kings Review

Overview: The story: Deeper and deeper he went. Strange shapes were visible on the corridor walls. The walls almost seemed to move.

Between him and artefacts of immeasurable value. Between him and the lives and deaths of the great kings of old. What do […]
