What Nicodemus wrote will work.
Are you dry stacking the blocks or mortaring them in place?
If using mortar, once you get to the top row pack some sort of filler into the hollow core of the block, insulation, dirt whatever until the core is filled up to 2"-6" from the top. Then fill that hollow space up with either mortar or cement. Before the mortar / cement sets take some large bolts and push them into the mortar with the threaded end pointing up. Make sure they are plumb, straight up and down. Also make sure you leave enough thread exposed to go through the board you will place on top, as well as a washer and nut.
Once the mortar / cement hardens take your board and lay it on top where you plan on putting it. Have someone hold it and whack it with a hammer where the bolts are. This will make an indent in the board where the bolts are. Flip the board over and drill out the holes where there are indents.
You also might want to consider using treated lumber for this, or not it's up to you.
