Game description

Basically, this game can be played with older as well as with younger children. There is virtually no risk. The game is all about stacking buttons to a tower as high as possible within a certain time. To make things a little bit more difficult, it’s best to use different size buttons. The rating can be either how long it took the children to build this button tower or how long the tower stands before it collapses. You can also play against the time, in teams or one against the other. It does not really matter. The main thing is, everybody has fun. Of course, one more would be for all children to work together building this tower. This game is best played indoors because buttons are light weight and might fly away if the wind is too strong.


If the tower falls over, this team loses and will be eliminated from the game. In the end, you will have one Stacking King, which you should praise accordingly.
