We played a three player game tonight and we couldn't figure out with just three turns how can you gt taller than level three? I thought we might be missing something.

I think the tallest building I ever saw was 11 stories, so ya, I'm afraid you're missing something, though I cannot tell what it is without more information.

I have played three times and never had a game without at least 1 building exceeding 3 floors.

Are you placing upper floors during the first round? Only the very first building tile placed by the very first player must be a first floor building. After that, you can start building upwards. Remember that building upper levels does not require a bidding chip for tile placement. Also remember that you cannot place a first floor tile unless you have at least one bidding chip in one of the zones to be covered. You will likely run out of legal first floor places to build well before the building tiles are exhausted in a round.

In a three player game each player has a chance to play a minimum of 12 building tiles (4 tiles per turn), so 36 total. In theory, you could have a 36 floor building if it were possible to place all the tiles directly on top of each other. Obviously, building straight up scores less points because there are no bonus points gained from bidding chips.

How many building tiles are you failing to place in a round? At most, we had 3 left over for the entire game that had to be discarded. Remember that the mixed use segments on the building tiles are wild for the tile being placed and also for the tile being placed on.

We thought you had to bid for all buildings. Awesome, thanks for the help.
