Just like cornerstone, but with fewer pieces. I'm not sure I like all or the new rules, they can be a bit vague in places. The rule about not blocking someone's movement is too difficult to parse, since there are times when the use of the rule-breaking stones could allow a semi-blocking move. Anyway, I still prefer to just play with the original rules and have it be cut-throat. I also think that with fewer pieces, the tower falls far less, so I may spring for another set eventually.

I think with the fewer pieces, the game just doesn't compare to the original. I have yet to have a game end due to tower collapse. I think I may need to get a second copy to make the game more interesting.

Probably the best dexterity/strategy combo game out there. Strategy is an integral part of the game; the dexterity comes in when you try to push the limits, or get backed into a corner.

Great game, lots of fun, building the tower piece by piece. In my first game everyone was done, when I was about to put on my very last piece, jump on top and win, but then.... the tower tumbled down. Disaster.

Have two, so combining them creates the "original" Cornerstone.

A quick and engaging building game. The rules are simple, building the tower is fun, and skill can tip things in your favor. A great filler or gateway that appeals to many. Plays well with 2.

This smaller set makes the game time better, but the original had the amazing really tall towers. I like it a lot though

Great tower-building and climbing game - the best one available? Enough luck, enough challenge. I bought couple of these so I can play the original Cornerstone as well...

I have been waiting for more than a year to get my hands on this game, and now I finally played it (twice)!
I have to admit that I am a little disappointed with the quality of all wooden components (very light and a little rough around the edges), but they are functional enough. The gameplay, however, is as much fun as I expected. Having to climb the tower with your meeple is a nice and original concept. Also, the game plays quickly and with little downtime.
UPDATE: After some more plays, I still think this is a very original game, but I do question its replayability. Luck (the dice) usually dictates a large part of the endgame.
UPDATE(2): When played with gamers who take pride in setting up an unstable tower the experience really improves!
UPDATE(3): Bought a second copy so I can play the original Cornerstone (no discs, building on floor level allowed and encasing other players allowed). That version is still the best.

Nice combination of dexterity and tactics; You need 3D-insight so for me to win this, this will be very hard for me to ever win this :s
