This really seems like a silly question but we can't figure it out from the rules.

We're used to Le Havre where you can only construct the top building.

But in Caylus, when you are building, for example, a wood building, can you dig through the available buildings and choose the one you want to build? Or do you have to build the top one?

Despite your hope, there is not even any inherent symbolism; gravity is simply a coincidence.

You may build any for which you can afford the resources.

Yes, there is no "top" building. In fact, we only stack the green ones, because they are the same. Other buildings we keep side by side for everyone to see.

That makes a lot of sense. We'll start doing that.

This is our first day with Caylus and we are -loving it-.

The brown, gray and blue building tiles are sorted out by color, and placed face up on the side of the board. The green tiles are piled up close by.

It is only possible to build a building if it is still available in the stock.


I.e. no mention of a stack or top building or any such building restrictions. All buildings in the stock are available.
