Build a Tower Game is an open ended version, where students or the teacher can choose the target (end) number to win. The board has 2 colored spaces. The blue space allows the student to build on his/her own tower. The yellow WILD spaces allow the student to choose to add or subtract from their opponent's tower, or apply the space to their own tower. Using strategy and a little luck, students can manipulate the spaces to get their tower to the target number.
