I admit its a bit fiddley to setup, but this does mean there is variety in the board layout as you can make it any shape you want not just the recommended one in the instructions.
I think previous reviews have said its poor quality for the money, i don't share that view the problem with the really good modern board games is that not enough people buy them so this unfortunately keeps the cost high, look at a game like `ticket to ride' as an example. The board tokens are good quality and the penguins are ok quality. It is a small box and I think this is the issue, as small box makes you think low cost.
Its a great game to take on holiday as it is a small package, i would thoroughly recommend this game my 7 year old loves to play this game and its not too simple that an adult gets bored.
a good purchase..
In the box you receive 60 ‘ice’ tiles, 16 penguins and rules. To start the game you shuffle the 60 tiles and set them out into a game board. Players then choose which colour penguins they want to play with and place them onto ice tiles of their choosing. The more players that play the less penguins each player has to play with.
Players take it in turns to move their penguins between the tiles. Penguins can be moved as many places as possible, however, they can only move in a straight line and cannot jump over any gaps or other penguins. Once moved, the player takes the tile that they started on and adds it to their game pile. Each tile has on it either 1, 2 or 3 fish. Play continues until all player’s penguins are stranded and no one can make any more moves. At the end of the game each player counts up the number of fish they have on their own pile of tiles which they have collected. Whoever has the most wins.
I have to admit, when I first read the instructions I was a little confused, however, once we had set up the game board and started playing the rules were easy to pick up. At the age of 7 I thought it may be a little difficult for our son, however, he has played strategic games with his Dad in the past and picked up the rules very quickly.
The game pieces are great quality and I really like that the game is very small so it is easy to take away with you.
We had great fun playing this game as a family, even my husband enjoyed playing and we ended up playing quite a few games one afternoon. I can definitely see it being a game that is played often.
We received this game free of charge in return for our honest blog review.
