The centerpiece of the board game Babel is a wooden disc, which is spun by the players like a wheel of fortune. As the disc rotates, the same player tries to build the block ,which had been previously displayed on the disc, within the triangle. If the player fails to build the block and other stones that were already built up on the triangle are torn down, the player must take them all. Goal of the game is to get rid of all your blocks first.At the beginning of the game, each player gets different building blocks, each with different characteristics. These are: a triangle, roundwood,  small square block and a half-round wood.Babel is designed for 3 players. However, since two hands need to be used per turn,  for turning the disc and for placing the stone, it is also very suitable for playing in three double teams.
