Babylon is a simple strategy game that plays very quickly.
There are 12 tiles in four different colors and gameplay consists of only one move – stack.

In order to stack, you need to follow one of two rules; you can stack if the top tiles are the same color OR if the sizes of the stacks are the same.

That’s it. The last player able to make a legal stack is the winner.

It sounds simple, but there is some definite strategy involved. Unless you are me. The two times I tried to plan multiple moves ahead, I lost.

The recommended age is 7+ but my 4 year old son grasped the gameplay pretty easily. It actually works well as practice on his grouping and counting skills. Our two kids can definitely play this without our supervision (grown-ups can play without children supervision).

We really liked this game as a whole family.

OZG Kids' Score: 8

OZG Grown-Ups Score: 9
