Hey, that’s my Fish! Review and Giveaway

Hey, that’s my Fish! is a handy travel size game that’s lots of fun.  You do take up a little bit of time to set up the board, but you can follow the template in the instructions so it’s a bit quicker that way, even better task your children with helping get the game ready.  Other than that it’s quite easy to get the hang of, but just because the concept is simple does not mean the game is boring!  You really have to think how best to move your penguins round the quickly depleting board.


It is pitched for children 8+ but my almost 7 year old really enjoyed it, it is hard to find games that capture his attention but he caught on to this one pretty quickly!  



Each player has four coloured penguins and the aim is to use them to collect as many fish as they can before they can no longer move, this can happen quite quickly depending on how strategic the other players are! 

You play by moving in any direction and when you are settled on your new ice floe you take the one you initially started from, soon big gaps appear in the ice making it very hard to navigate round.  When you cannot move you take the ice floe you were stuck on and then your penguin is out of the game.

The box is a handy size to take away on holidays, very portable and a game that will keep up to four players happily occupied whilst away from home.

I just aimed to target the three fish then the two fish ice floe spaces before the boys.  We ended the game with me having 36 points and them 31 points each, so it was quite a close game really.  Next time I think we will be doing more blocking moves to restrict how much of the ice floe the other penguins can get at!

If you would like to win a copy of Hey, that’s my Fish! please fill out the form below by the 24th of March, alternative you can buy your own copy from Amazon.
