In this episode of How to Build a Card House Series, Kardtects shows the construction of a Desert Temple using the Lost Desert Starter set of building cards.
There are 111 collectible building cards within the starter set; 100 common wall cards, 10 common (2 Pyramid Doors, 4 Hieroglyphic Pillars, 4 Guarding Pharaohs), and 1 Ultra Rare Door card. It is the ideal amount for beginning Kardtects (aka card architects) to get started with building incredible structures!
The base to the Desert Temple card house uses first the T-Method Building System. On top of the base, the Kardtects Square Method of Building System is used. Additionally, the Pillar Method is shown.
As with any type of product, there are certain systems to follow for best results. This structure is a great way to learn and practice multiple Kardtects building systems. Each of them can be used for limitless building fun!
Let’s get started!
Watch the Video to see the Lost Desert Temple card house being built:
As the video showed, start by building the base. The base is 3 Square Wide by 1 ½ Deep with a Kardtects Square Bump Out. The cards are leaned up against each other by forming T’s. Hence the reason for the name.
This is what is meant by 3 square wide:
Notice how 3 cards rest on top in the center of the ‘Square’ base. Four smaller inner squares/cores make up 1 ‘Square’. The base is 1 1/2 deep with a Kardtects Square in front center for walkway.
Add the roof/floor by Overhanging building cards. The overhang provides amble space for the next level to be built upon it.
Now it is time to build the ‘Desert Temple’ by using the Kardtects Square Method.
Add the Pillars, walkway, and Guarding Pharaohs! Finished! Doesn’t it look awesome!
However, what goes up, must come down. And so have fun using the Kardtects Destroyer Disks to knock it down. Knocking it down is lots of fun, and it also allows you to build again!
What will you build next?
How about another style of Temple or Pyramid? With additional cards, found in the Expansion Packs, the following, Desert Card House, can be built.
