Ter Elst Castle, locally known as Kasteel Ter Elst, lies on an islet in a public parc in the village of Duffel, south-east of the city of Antwerp in Belgium.

The history of Ter Elst Castle reaches back to the 12th century. It was then owned by the Hildinckhusen brothers, the oldest known lords of Duffel.

From 1356 until the French revolution the castle was owned by the abbey of Tongerlo. The abbots turned the castle into a beautiful estate and some important guests were entertained here, like Margaretha of York on several occassions between 1477 and 1503 and her lover Filips the Beautiful, Duke of Burgundy. The latter asked the Abbey to sell the castle to him because he liked it so much, but the abbots refused.

Part of the castle was burned down in 1584. But the castle was rebuilt in an even more beautiful manor. The French revolutionaries confiscated and pillaged the castle at the end of the 18th century.

A final blow to the castle came with the battle of the Nete during WW I. After the war governor Baron Holvoet wanted to buy the castle to rebuild it and to turn it into a city hall. This was however rejected by the city council. So the castle stayed empty and fell to ruin over the years.

The ruins were bought by the city council in the 1970’s and partially restored in their previous glory. In 1982 the ruins of Ter Elst Castle were opened to the public.

I'm a bad player at this game, but still managed to complete it on first try. Got a little bored of all those invasions.

Balance: 3
Like I said - not hard enough. Too many archers. Enemy did not get pass first gatehouse. When they got trough the moat they got pwned.

Additional Comments:
Try to give less archers and make less invasions.
