Excellent addition to games collection


We are delighted with the quality and entertainment value of this game. I especially like how well designed the box is -- it's sturdy enough for the weight of all the wooden blocks and everything fits into it beautifully.More > < Less


Clever and fun!


This is a fun game for kids and adults. I was amazed at how high we were able to build before it tumbled! The pieces are very high quality, and the rules are very simple. Even one of the adults, who doesn't like "games", had a good time playing!More > < Less




The kids and the adults had so much fun with this game. They love it!

Tummple - The Building Game

About tummple!

Stacks & Stones

Next family game night, try something new with tummple!, a fast paced, highly unpredictable building game that consists of a combination of wooden bricks and plastic pebbles.

The name tummple is a derivative of the Indonesian word tampuken, meaning “stack." The inspiration for the game came to creator Bruce Shadorf during a trip to Bali as he watched two local men stacking a pile of wood. Just as they placed the last log on the pile, the whole thing toppled over. But, with careful placement and strategy, their second attempt was a success.

In the game of tummple!, plotting, planning and blocking are the key to winning. Small stones called “tumps” serve as obstacles adding an extra element of strategy to the game. Stack high. Build wide. Suspense grows along with the structure and tensions keep rising right up until the configuration crumbles.

We’re not sure whether our testers had more fun stacking and blocking or watching tummple! teeter and eventually come tumbling down. One thing is certain—tummple! will keep kids and adults alike on the edge of their seats.
