From the instructions in the box: The object is to remove one block at a time from the tower. Read and answer the question aloud that appears on the block and then stack it on top. The last player to stack a block without making the tower fall wins the game. The most avid reader assembles the tower and then goes first. Play passes to the left. On your turn, carefully remove one block from anywhere below the highest completed story of the tower. Use only one hand. Then stack the block on top of the tower at right angles to the blocks just below it. As the block is removed, read the question on it out loud. Answer the question and let the conversation flow as you stack the block on top of the tower. You can touch blocks to find a loose one, but if you move a block out of place, you must put it back in place using one hand only before touching another block. While stacking, always complete a 3-block story before starting a higher one. Your turn ends 10 seconds after you stack your block or as soon as the next player touches one.
