Also got a kick out of the Magic template cards.
Yeah, the thing about the King's Castle Siege set is that you build it in sections, and then click the sections together. So it's pretty easy to turn the castle into "ruins" (which are kind of inside out when placed around the edge of a table) by simply taking the separate sections apart again.
And yeah, I kinda liked how the cards turned out myself, although with only half a card's worth of space there's not as much room for stats and abilities. I'm going to play around with Magic Set Editor (the program I used) to see if there's a way to import template files, and if there is, I'll definitely be using the standard BW templates in the future.

Two notes here: one, I was most certainly not part of any alliance, that was all their idea. Second, they established their alliance during the first round of turns in the game, so it really wasn't the "middle".
But yeah, I'm definitely going to try to discourage teaming up like that in the future; the poor guy between those two had his entire army wiped out twice.
And I definitely would have taken more photos had I remembered to do so. Thing is, for about half of each round of turns I found myself either taking my turn or defending against the attacks of the players to either side of me.
