There are a few differences. Start by setting up the tower on three levels with 8 pillars of four different colors (2 per level) and place a circular disc between each level.
On each turn, roll the die, and you have to remove one pillar of that color and place it on the top. You may roll the wild space, and you can pull any pillar. When you have 8 pillars on the next higher level--and, obviously, fewer on the levels below--you add a new disc and play continues.
You don't need to be a genius to see what's coming. At some point the inevitable happens. The tower can't be supported, and it crashes down, making a lot of hilarious noise--and controlled mess. This is classic skill and suspense play that people of all ages can play together easily. The “mayhem” is infectious, and the big, brightly colored pieces are easy even for small hands to manipulate.
The set comes with a cloth bag that can hold all the pieces for easy storage.
Trying to psych out other players is a fun part of this game as well.
