The Dice Tower
THEY’RE JUST CARDS, RIGHT?
The cards in Stroop each display a single word. The words are printed in several colors (black, red, blue, and yellow), sizes (big and little), styles (hollow and solid) and have different numbers of letters (three, four, five, and six). The challenge is to read one word and quickly match it with the description of another word—without regard to what the second word says. Race to empty your deck before your opponents!
