Mercenaries101 Happy Housing Contest!

Mercenaries101 Happy Housing Contest!

Jul 4, 2014

With the Build-A-Castles and now the craftable castle blocks, KingsIsle has introduced a very creative new way to design a house. We here at Mercs love the Build-A-Castle function, so much that we wrote our own haiku about it!

Bricks lay all around

On this grand and sunny day

I have my castle!

(I’m not the best poetry person, but you get the idea!). Your job is to also create a haiku! Haikus are 5-7-5 structure, in the sense the first line is 5 syallables, the second line 7, and the final line 5. This contest will end at 11:59pm CENTRAL time in the 11th of July. Please allow us a few days to properly judge all the entries. :)

Our favorite haiku will snag themselves a Build-A-Castle background of choice (Midday Estate, Meadows at Dusk, or Night Garden), and a code for 5 Mega Snack Packs and 5 Energy Elixirs.

Our next two favorite will receive a Midday Estate and a code for 5 Mega Snack Packs!

Our final two favorites will receive a Midday Estate and a code for 5 Energy Elixirs!

Best wishes, and may the best haiku-er win!
