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
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!

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

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).
