In Turquoise, players build a pyramid using cardboard squares and short lightweight plastic pillars. The squares are made of heavy card stock and are printed with footbridges which are used to move the pillars onto and around the game board. Each player has a different colored set of pillars, and players win points for placing squares on their own pillars. The pyramid has three levels, and once the third level is placed, the game is over, and the player with the most points wins. Points are also subtracted at the end for pillars which are on the game board but not supporting a square.

This game is easy to learn and easy to play, and doesn’t require a lot of complex strategy. The footbridges are not always continuous, so most of the strategy comes from trying to move one's pillars onto the proper places. It takes about 45 minutes to play. The pieces are colorful and well-designed, although it is too easy to accidentally dislodge the squares and send the pyramid crashing down. Did the Egyptians have this problem too? It is packaged in a small square wooden box which would be easy to transport in a suitcase, even if it is a bit heavy.

This would make a good filler game. It is also a good game for kids, although rambunctious kids will knock the pyramid down a lot.
