What is ICECOOL about?
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! ICECOOL is a 2-4 player flicking game where the objective for players is to collect fish without being caught by the Hall Monitor (the catcher) in order to accumulate Victory Points. Players take turns being the Catcher and the game is over when every player has been the Catcher once. The game consists of as many rounds as there are players and each round consists of 3 phases. You set the game board comprising a setup of various rooms. Phase 1 – Round Setup Players place their penguins. Phase 2 – Playing the Round Players who are not the Hall Monitor take turns flicking their penguins around to collect fish. The Hall Monitor flicks their Penguin around the board trying to catch the other players. Phase 3 – The End of the Round The player with the highest amount of victory points wins!
