brainstorm bottle towers display

Just want to put an idea I had yesterday up for discussion:
I was looking for an interesting way to display bottles + use our messges + integrate Miguel's idea of some sort of an interactive feature-game-reward:
a labyrinth made of the weekly bottle prims, where we place most of our "message in a bottle" or other factoids.

If you are interested in that concept, what is the 'reward' if you make it to the center?
Do we need to plan it on paper? How hard should it be? Of course you can always fly away...
