Ice Cool Review and Giveaway

Well my boys certainly think their latest game delivery is cool just like the title “Ice Cool”.  They love the concept, its simple to set up and play.  It’s very innovative; the 3D board boxes feel slightly like a Russian Doll as you keep finding more in the main box as you empty out the contents!  But they click together easily and then you’re ready to get started.  The rules are minimal, not too much to get your head around (this is important for me, as I currently have summer holiday frazzled brain!).


Some initial practice is recommended, you can flick the penguin straight or curve it slightly and if you get skilled in the art of penguin movement you can even jump it over a wall!

I am yet to reach that level of penguin mastery, but hubbie was quite skilled fairly quickly.  I did however still manage to win one game, jump or not – I got quite lucky and one flick saw my penguin go through two doorways in one move!

Once you manage to get one of your fish you are awarded with a points card, if you get two 1 point ones you get a bonus of an extra flick of your penguin.  This is worth taking advantage of if the catcher is getting close… we all liked playing the two different roles (the naughty penguin stealing fish or the chasing hall monitor).


The boys think its funny that its set in a penguin school and some cheeky penguins want their fish early.  It suits their mischievous nature.  It can get quite competitive when you have the catcher in hot pursuit of you, they get points for taking penguin ID cards off the penguin thieves.  It’s a game of cat and mouse or rather penguin v’s penguin, without your ID you can still play but once the catcher has everyone’s ID’s or someone catches all their coloured fish then its game over.  You play as many rounds as there are players (up to four).

Available to buy for an RRP of £29.99 from Amazon or your local games shop but I also have a copy to giveaway here.  If you would like to enter please fill out the form below by the 8th of September.
