Compete as master architects to build the city’s highest towers. Each round,
5 cards – the building blocks of your towers – are up for bidding. The player willing
to take the most of them wins them and must add them onto their own growing
towers. But why not just take all of them? For you can only build one tower of
each type, and the values of the cards in each tower must gracefully decrease as
you build up, so taking too many at once restricts your future bids.
When the last brick has been laid, the player with the most points wins. Each card
in a tower grants you a point. If that tower is graced with a tower top, its cards are
worth two instead. The cards in your highest tower are worth another point still,
while any cards you tore down in the course of your building will cost you points.
5 Towers is an entertaining card game that is all about clever planning and never taking your eyes off your fellow players. Kasper Lapp, known for his innovative card games like „That’s not a hat“, strikes again with surprising depth that only unfolds during the course of the game. u2028The vibrant illustrations by Annika Heller are filled with movie- and game references and bring a fun meta layer to the game. Can you spot all the references?
5 Towers will first be published with Pegasus and Pegasus North America in October 2023.
