Hi,

Do you know of a game that has stackable tower type pieces?

I'm looking to put together a prototype for a game that I'm designing and I'm hoping to find an existing game with those types of pieces to use for the prototype.

Ideally the base of the pieces would be approximately an inch wide, but I'm open to anything. The towers only need to be stacked three pieces high.

Thanks,
Dan

Same pieces also in Arkadia. Probably more.

Thanks, everyone.

Lazymountain, I'm open to lego style.

A few other considerations -- it doesn't have to look like a tower necessarily. I'm open to anything stackable. Also, different color pieces would be a plus (like a set of one color, and a set of another, etc.). Lastly, ideally there would be a lot of pieces in the game. (Santorini for example may be too few).

Thanks!

Playing With Pyramids? I'm pretty sure they are 3-stackable.

I've been looking for something like this as well.

One game you could check out is Skyliners https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/182605/skyliners.

For a cheap and plentiful option that isn't from a game you could look on Amazon or google for "Stacking Counters" or some variation. Something like these 500 discs in 10 colors https://www.amazon.com/Stacking-Counters-set-of-500/dp/B00XL....
Or these 100 interlocking blocks

Lords of Xidit has little round ones in 5 different colors, not sure if those would work with what you need.

Manhattan might fit the bill:

Not towers but Can't Stop or maybe Advance to Boardwalk.
The Geek Store sells Can't Stop cone packs.

I think I've narrowed it down to Skyliners and Lords of Xidit. Manhattan was a good fit too, but that's surprisingly expensive. Skyliners comes with more pieces than LOX (if I use the antenna as the third story), but LOX has an aesthetic that is closest to what I envisioned for my game.

Thank you, everyone, that was really helpful!
