Our new game towers is a game for young and old. The game is published and distributed by Westermann Gruppe. Try it out! Who doesn't like to build towers?

The concept is simple. The game consists of a large number of wooden blocks of various shapes. The shapes are built-up from small cubes, varying from 1 to 6 cubes. There are two variants of the game: 1. just try to build the highest tower; 2. build a tower with a 'whole' in the middle (on the pictures you only see this variant).

the rules

The rules are very simple. The game can be played with 2 or 3 players. One player throws a dice. Depending on the number on the dice, he selects a shape from the blocks. For example, if his has thrown 4, he has to select a block consisting of 4 cubes. Now he gives the chosen shape to the next player. Of course he tries to choose the most difficult shape... The player who receives the block has to put it such that he constructs his tower. Depending on the variant, he just tries to build as high as possible (with no rules on the shape of the tower). In the other variant he has to construct a tower with a whole in the middle (see pictures). He may keep wholes in the wall as well, but in the end the highest full 'ring' of block counts. The player that has the highest full ring wins. If a tower falls down, all the fallen pieces are put back on the table (to be used by both players).
