Tower of Madness Game Review

Best Moment

Two Doom marbles had already dropped. We knew the third was close to falling. No one had gone mad yet…until my nephew dropped his last madness marble, immediately went insane, followed by the third Doom marble hitting the ground. He simultaneously went crazy and won the game in the same round!
