- This is the best tournament set to date (yep over twenty years old and not beaten, well the new kingdoms one is good too), it features an ample number of spectators, and two knights (each with a squire) and a peasant/barman.
It is also a good example of friendly completion between the Black Knights and the Crusaders. The set features a jousting bar, a spectators box, a weapon rack and a drinks space, this set has a lot with it and the potential to become much more, I would hazard a comment of LEGO perfection.

I'm not a castle fan, but this set blows me away. This set has a grandstand for the monarchy and the joust area for the two knights. There is also a weapons shack which is pretty cool. Lego doesn't make sets like this anymore which is why it should be rereleased.

This set is misunderstood by many. Everyone complains about the color scheme but i think it is excelent. The use of all the colors (really there are only three main ones) is because it is supposed to be a fair where the jousting is. Picture this set in black and white like most other castle sets. It would look horrible. But besides the AWESOME color scheme this set has a nice variety of figures. Two horses with rare bardings, two extremely rare red wall pieces, Lady and of course the white dome pieces. Great set, I am not sure of how much it costed at the time i was just born that year but i recently got mine for $50 off ebay which i think was worth every penny.

This set is very, very well done. It can provide hours of entertainment by itself, or with another set or two.
The set design is great. The pavilion is great, and everything else is grand. The colors are nice, becuase it is supposed to be like a medeival fair.
Minifigs: These guys are sweet! 2 knights, 4 soldiers, 1 peasant, and 1 princess. The peasants are always great, princess are sweet, and the knights look awesome. Comes with lots of accessories and 2 bardings.
This is a very, very good set all around. Too bad it is so expensive now, or I would get more of them.

This is one of the few Castle sets with a rare female minifig. Even now, there still aren't many female minifigs in Castle, but there's more of them showing up.
In addition to the rare female minifig, you also get a peasant minifigure too. That he's at a keg of beer or ale, highly suggests that this Joust Set is taking place during a Faire which would also explain too the bright colors in this set.
I've enjoyed putting this set together and it's a wonderful break from all the Castles, Towers and Catapults that Lego puts out for this theme.
