Archicards: Build a Skyscraper
by Paul Farrell
5 out of 5 stars


This game has 64 cards that are designed with the towers, windows, roofs, and decorative doorways of a city skyscraper. Each card has cut-out slots so that you can connect them with each other to build a 3D puzzle of a skyscraper in any shape you want! The cards are sturdy cardboard, and printed with bright colors and a simple design.

I can’t stop playing this game! Every day for the last several days, I sit down and construct something new.

I’ve done three individual towers, two towers with a bridge in between, one long building, and one L-shaped building with one big tower. I keep changing it up, and I feel so creative! It’s completely fascinating because it fires up my imagination and there are so many options for how to put the skyscraper together.

The only limit is your own imagination! I love how the design is so simple and versatile, and it really inspired my creativity! It’s also incredibly relaxing.

The booklet that comes with the game describes the history of skyscraper buildings like the largest buildings in the world, the first skyscraper, the tallest and flashiest and most beautiful buildings. I really loved the whole design and information included with this game. This would be perfect for ages 7 to 70!
