Build a tower with your bricks on the base plate.
Remove your top brick and play it on the base plate.
Read and compare your numbers.
Take both bricks if your number is the highest and build your tower higher by adding them underneath.
If your 2 bricks are identical, take the next brick from your tower and compare again.
