  1. Raise the Roof

    Raise the Roof is a construction strategy card game for 2 to 4 players. The game is played by drawing cards in turn and playing them to build your house. Room cards used to build your house range in value from 100 to 400. You can stop other players from building their house, take parts from their house, and even take cards from their hands. The game ends when a house is completed. All players must then add up the value of their respective houses and subtract the value of the cards in their hands. The player with the highest score wins. Raise the Roof was created by Henard Industries in 1982 and was discontinued after only a few years of print.
