Well, now there's a game that takes this natural tendency and turns it into a game - Knock Your Blocks Off. Way to go Gamewright!
First it's a race to roll your dice and build a structure. Then you get chances to destroy each others stuff.
Kids love games where they get to show off their skill in demolition. Whether they get to flick the demolition die, toss it, or drop it from above, they just love to take a crack at each others' structure.
This is a game that our kids can't seem to get enough of. Once they start playing, they'll keep at it for quite a while.

Each player has a set of 6 dice "blocks" which have a variety of two-color patterns on them. Simultaneously, the players roll their "blocks" and then build them into one of six different "structures". The first player to finish his structure places his king block on the top of his creation then grabs the destruction die from the center of the table, meaning he gets to go first when the attacking begins.
Once all the players have finished their structures, the starting player chooses one of his neighbors to attack & rolls the destruction die. The result determines whether the player will have to flick the die (boulder), throw the die underhand (ogre) or drop it from above (dragon) in his attempt to knock the king block to the table. If he's successful, he gets a point... but if he fails, the defender gets a point!
Now the die passes to the defender and he in turn attacks the next player. After each player has attacked and been attacked one time, the turn is over and players get ready to roll their blocks & build a new structure. The first player to reach 8 victory points wins immediately.
There are a few wrinkles, of course:
- each of the five structures (tower, wall, fort, stairs, gate) have a special power - some give you extra points for attacking or defending successfully, while others make it easier to attack or defend.
- the player who finishes their structure first not only gets the destruction die but also a victory point...Read more ›
The goal of the game is to build structures that will withstand an attack by your opponent, and/or knock the "king" block off a structure built by one of your opponents - if you succeed in either endeavor, you receive a token. The first to collect 8 tokens wins the game, so usually several rounds of building are required before the game can be won.
We had a lot of fun playing this on family game night, and both kids have asked to play it again.

Not my favorite Gamewright game, but a good one. Enjoyed playing it, but it's not "a keeper" in the same way that Gamewright's Castle Keep is (buy that!)Published on March 19, 2014 by SMC
You can make this game as easy or difficult as you prefer by adopting your own rules. In our family we have simplified it, so both the 5 year old granddaughter and 8 year old... Read morePublished on February 26, 2012 by Mystery Lover
