Players- 9+

Playing time- 10 minutes

Type- Team

Age- 8+

Need- Slips of paper

Object- Build 1 skyscraper, 1 subway and 1 road

Learning time- 2-4 minutes

How to play:

1) Cut 9 slips of paper. Write 'Architect' on 3, 'Engineer' on 3 and 'Construction Worker' on 3. On the back of the 3 Architects, write 1 red, 1 blue and 1 yellow. On the back of the 3 Engineers, write 1 red, 1 blue and 1 yellow. On the back of the 3 Construction Workers, write 1 red, 1 blue and 1 yellow.

2) Draw three squares on the board and label them red, blue and yellow.

3) Pass out 1 slip of paper to each person. Each person may see everyone's identity but team colors must remain hidden.

4) Moving clockwise, each player chooses to either Build or Challenge.

5) You may build on either your colored square or another team's colored square. Identity cards can build the following:
a. Architects build skyscrapers.
b. Engineers build subways.
c. Construction workers build roads.

6) Write the name of the person next to what they built.

7) A person may challenge someone who built something by doing something they believe the other person cannot do. For example: tricks, throwing a ball, jumping, whistling, touching toes or hidden talents. If the other person cannot do it, you can erase what they built. If they can, nothing changes. Move on to the next player.

8) Continue playing until 1 colored square has 1 skyscraper, 1 subway and 1 road. Reveal the identities of the 3 people who built in that square.
* If 1 or more of them is not on that team, erase what they built.
* If they are all on that team, one player from each of the other 2 teams gives one final challenge. If a challenge is not passed, erase all 3 items from their square. If each challenge is passed successfully, they win.
