That Etsy tower looks awesome, but $75? That’s more than the game! Any cheap alternatives?

I made some platforms out of foam core for fairly cheap.

WOW! That's way better than any tower I've seen. Using an actual tower only sounds good to people who haven't played much. After you've struggled to see exactly what's happening, I think anyone would prefer these tiered platforms instead.

Something like this? Seems solid.

I built this, which is not that great looking, but cheap and straight forward to make.



(In hindsight I should have left more space for the walls between the tiles)

I have one of these...it works, but it’s a bit on the flimsy side.
