Speedy Towers is a real-time tower building game for the piecepack. Build your tiles the fastest to win.



You need only the piecepack tiles. Shuffle them face down and place 1 fewer than the then the number of players (but at least 2) in the middle of the table. These will form the foundations of the towers. Divide the rest evenly among the players.


The fastest player (or whoever won the last game) turns over the foundation tiles in the middle of the table. As soon as the last foundation tile has been turned over players may start turning over and placing their tiles one at a time onto one of the foundations in the middle.

Players race to empty their piles following the following placement rules:

If a player (or multiple players) knock over one of the towers while placing a tile they leave one of the tiles in the middle for the new foundation, take four tiles (each) for themselves and push the rest aside.

If the situation arises that nobody can place a tile all the players place their current tile face down and turn over a new tile. There are no more playable tiles the person with the fewest tiles wins.

Winning the Game

The person who empties their pile first wins. In the case of a tie share the win or play again.


Divide the tiles unevenly so that faster players get more and everyone has a chance to win.
