A Milton Bradley Game
For Any Number of Players
Remove one block at a time from the tower, and stack it on top.
The last player to stack a block without making the tower fall
wins the game.
1. One player builds the tower on a flat, sturdy surface by using
the loading tray as shown below. Place three blocks in each layer,
at right angles to the previous layer. When you finish you'll
have a solid, 18-story tower that can more than double during
2. Use the loading tray to set the tower upright Then carefully
slide the tray away, and put it aside.
1. The player who built the tower goes first. Play then continues
to the left.
2. On your turn, carefully remove a block from anywhere BELOW
the highest completed story Then stack it on top of the tower,
at right angles to the blocks just below it.
3. Removing and Stacking Blocks
oRemove and stack one block per turn. To remove a block, use one
hand at a time. You can switch hands whenever you wish.
oAs play proceeds and the weight of the tower shifts, some blocks
become looser than others and are easier to remove. You can touch
other blocks to find a loose one - but if you move a block out
of place, you must fix it (using one hand only) before touching
oWhile stacking, always complete one 3 - block story before starting
a higher one.
4. Your turn ends 10 seconds after you stack your block-or as
soon as the player to your left touches a block.
5. Keep removing and stacking blocks until the tower falls. A
real pro can build a tower 36 stories high - or more!
WHO WINS?These rules are posted here for those of you who lost
their rules and thought to look on the internet or for those of
you who want to know what the game is about before you buy it.
This is a top choice for my ten and thirteen year olds.
The last player to take a turn without making the tower fall wins
the game. The player responsible for making the tower, fall gets
to set up the tower for the next game!
SOLO PLAY: Play alone for practice. Can you top your record height
before the tower falls!
