Product Description

The players alternate playing blocks on the board. On his turn, a player may also move one block already on the board. Thus, the players try to build towers, containing blocks that match the figures on the player's symbol tokens. At the end of the game, each player arranges their tokens so that they match the most towers on the board. The player who manages the most matches wins the game.

A Decent Abstract Game
February 26, 2004

This game looks nice, with big chunky wooden pieces. It's also very easy to learn and quick to play, so it's a relatively 'light' abstract game. Gameplay is straightforward: choose a block and place it on the board in a position that you like and your opponent hopefully doesn't. Then you may change one of the topmost blocks. It's possible to focus so much on your own objective that you forget to block your opponent, which happened in my second game.

Overall, it's not fantastic, but it is good and certainly easy and fun enough to be worth trying.
