Rittenhouse | Giant Tower

By: Rittenhouse  09-12-2011

Giant Tower is a game of patience and dexterity. Build the tower, and then take turns to remove a piece and add it to the top without making the whole tower tumble.

More than simple hand eye coordination, this oversized version of another famous game  will force the player to think strategically before each move.In a game with more than one player, you would like to destabilize the tower such that the person who makes the next move is more likely than you were to cause it to fall over.On the other hand, if you're playing alone for practice, or to break a previous height record, then you would be better served in attempting to maintain the tower's stability at all times while you try to build higher and higher.

Playing Giant Tower again and again will help you to relax as you gain in patience.To become a master at Giant Tower , you must learn to slow your heartbeat, since the slightest miscalculation can bring the tower crashing down.Only through stillness and careful movement can you persevere at this great game.

Giant Tower is a durable long lasting game that conveniently re-packages for storage.Moreover, Giant Tower can be played outside without the fear of losing pieces they are very hard to miss, even in tall grass.

In the early 1970s Leslie Scott, a Briton, invented the petite version of Giant Tower, giving it another name.  Eventually, the other game  was sold in Britain, and was later discovered by the American entrepreneur Robert Grebler who brought it to North America where it has become a staple amongst college students and kids across the continent.Though Giant Tower has a much shorter history than games such as Snakes and Ladders or Quoits, if its thirty years of popularity is any indication of its future longevity, it is sure to become a classic as well.
