May Challenge - Castles

We've seen a few castles that people have already started and they are looking very impressive so far!

I thought I'd better post some more details on how and when they will be judged...

Judging will take place on Saturday 1st June, sometime in the afternoon, the July challenge will be announced shortly afterwards.

Entries will be judged by DiggyWig, DigginChickin and 3-6 other random players chosen on the day, judges will need skype (sound not necessary) so we can discuss choices outside of the game.

Each judge will make a first and second choice, being selected as a judges first choice will get you 10 points, second choice will get you 5 points, all your points will then be added up to get your basic score.

As well as the basic score bonus points will be awarded for:

Best moat (water or lava) - 10 bonus points
Best garden / courtyard - 10 bonus points
Best castle name - 10 bonus points
Most unique build - 10 bonus points
Most interesting use of materials - 10 bonus points

For the bonus points each judge will get to cast a single vote for each category, the castle with the most votes in each category will get the points, or they will be split in the case of a draw.

Once all the votes are in, I will add up everyones points and post the first and second place entries on here, the winners name will also be displayed on one of the boards at spawn and images of the builds will be posted here and on the Technic Forums!

The winning entries will also be offered a choice of prizes!

To enter you need to send the name/s of the player/s entering the castle, the name you have given your castle and coordinates the judges should teleport to when judging it. This information can be sent either by skype (DiggyWig or DigginChickin) or e-mail ( but must be received by midnight on Friday 31st May for your entry to be included.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!
