Tower Collide was made in the span of a week as part of the game design principles class at the University of Central Florida. It was created using a 52 deck of cards, with Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF to create documentation. The intention of this project was to explore how new games can be made from existing game assets.
Given the plethora of card games that already exist, at first it was difficult to come up with something unique. I approached this challenge by considering how changing an aspect of an existing card game could shift how it’s played. This led me to consider what a multi-player version of solitaire would be like, which led to the development of Tower Collide.
How to Play
Tower Collide is an easy & fun card game that can be played with 2 people and a 52 card deck. To start, all you need to do is place a joker equal distance between the players, have each player draw a card, and place those cards in front of them.
Easy Set Up
All you need to play is a 52 deck of cards, a flat surface, and 2 players
Players can then start to build their towers! Take a card from the deck, and if it matches the suit or symbol of the last card added to the tower, then it can be added too.
If a player matches 3 cards of the same suit in a row, then they can remove a card from their opponent’s tower (as long as the opponent has more than just their starting card).

An example of how to match
The 1st player to build a tower tall enough to reach the clouds (represented by a joker) 2 out of 3 rounds wins!
