Ice Cool product reviews

*The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they‚ ™ve been craving. However, some rascals think they are quick enough to snatch some of the fish before the lunch break starts, but they have forgotten one thing ‚" the Hall Monitor! Each school day one of the penguins is designated to watch over the school, and this is his moment to shine ‚" for each rascal penguin he catches he would get additional fish!**

A fun run takes place ‚" the rascals are running everywhere and trying to snatch some fish on their way, but the Hall Monitor is trying to catch each and one of them to have some order in the school. Who will be more successful?

Ice Cool is a flicking game in which each round one of the players takes the role of the Hall Monitor (also called ‚úthe Catcher‚Ě) ‚" his aim will be to catch each other penguin and get points for that. The others (also known as ‚úRunners‚Ě) will try to run through several doors, thus gaining fish (that give them points) on their way. When either the Hall Monitor has caught each other penguin once or any of the others has gone through all 3 doors that have fish on them, the round is over. Each player will take the role of the Hall Monitor once and at the end of the game the winner will be the one with the most points on their fish cards.

The penguins can be flicked in a straight line, make curves and even jump over the walls! Each player will have to use the best of their skills in order to get the most points in this fun and exciting game. It's not just cool, it's ICE COOL!

This was a game that I wasn't interested in but that my youngest was VERY interested in. Luckily enough the store we were visiting had a game library and we were then able to give this a trial. By the end of it I had a very sore finger and their enthusiasm hadn't waned so I grabbed a copy to take home. One very neat thing about this game, is that there are five parts to set up for your 'board' and they all pack away inside of each other like nesting dolls. There are some plain, wooden fish, that then hold the five pieces together so they don't go everywhere, you match them up by the coloured dots, and when it is time to pack away, they are numbered to make it easier and quicker.

The game play isn't too hard, you need to flick your penguin so that it goes through the doors, so that you can collect your coloured fish. One player is trying to hit your penguin and if they do, then they gain a card which will provide the much needed points at the end. Each fish collected also equals one card. Each player gets a turn as the chaser, which works well and means no one is left feeling left out or picked upon. My kids really enjoy making their penguins fly around the rooms, while I'm just trying to figure out how to do it without making my fingers really hurt.
