Easy Snow Fort

Saves hours of time, and snow!

A rubber piece (made out of the same kind of rubber shoe soles are made out of) would be placed where ever you wanted a snowfort. From the side view, it'd look like 2 walls connected by a rounded piece at the top. Making sort of a thin arc shape at the top. Simply pack an inch or two of snow all over it. Presto, instant snow-wall! To make a fort, have four of them together, or buy the special for edition (it'd be higher, and a bit thicker).

What happens when you shoot ice? [swamilad, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 06 2004]

       Come on, that's not a snow-fort, just a snow-covered rubber fort.   

       How about you pack the snow into it, using it like a mould. Then you've only got to buy one.

       is a snow fort like a sandcastle but with snow?

       This snowfort might be good at preventing snowball-transmitted diseases.

       So you're proposing a rubber snow fort substructure? I like Yama's idea of making a giant mold then having THAT as your snow fortress building block. Besides, half the fun is having to franticaly rebuild it as bits are chipped away by incoming fire, and the hordes of enemies storming the gates. The Snow Bastion, indeed.

       Fill it with water. You get immediate protection against snowballs. After a cold night it is even bullet proof.

       Sorry to bring up pykrete, but I did learn of it here. Really I'm just using this (link) because it talks about plain old ice. kbecker, I just don't want you to use ice as a bulletproof structure. You could be hurt.

       //Not in my neighbourhood, but they may have them in the Southern states.//   

       Excpet the Southern states are a bit lacking in the basic materials required to build a *snow* fort.   

       Maybe a sand fort?

       We get snow in Amarillo, TX ... AND in Norman, OK.

       I've never been to Oklahoma, but they have a lot of nice horses there...
