The animals want to show how good they are at making tall pyramids! They must be skillfully careful: Who will position the penguin on top of the crocodile, the sheep on top of the penguin, the serpent on the sheep? The hedgehog wants to stand on top of the pyramid but the height is making him dizzy.
Tier auf Tier (a.k.a. Animal Upon Animal, Pyramide d'animaux, and Dier op dier) is a simple stacking game, listed for ages 4-99, with 29 cute wooden animals.
Each turn a player rolls the die and either places one or two animals on to the stack of animals, passes one of his or her animals to another player for them to place, or places an animal on the table, extending the base for other players to build upon. Of course, if any pieces fall off whilst you are building, you get up to two of them back. The first player to have used all of their animals wins.
This game, intended for children, is equally popular with adults.

This game is great. You take turns stacking animals, which is fun in and of itself. But some animals are harder to stack than others and the game also give you choices about which ones to hand to your opponents. Also perfect that if the animals fall it is no big deal. At most you take one or two animals to your hand and put the rest in the box, so the games don't take too long and no one feels too bad it their animals fall. An excellent game for teaching strategic thinking and risk management. Plus it is simply fun to stack those animals. I'm hooked :)
