Description

If the Runner completely goes through a door with a fish token of his color on it, he takes it and draws the top card from the fish card draw pile. You look at the card and put it face down partly covering your color reminder card. The round ends when either the Runner has collected all 3 fish tokens or when the Catcher has caught the Runner for the second time. However, catching the Runner for the second time doesn't give another benefit for the Catcher apart from ending the round). Players gain victory points for catching others or for collecting fish. When either the Catcher has caught all the Runners or any of the Runners has collected their 3 color fish, the round is over. Each player, starting with the Catcher, draws 1 card from the fish card draw pile for each ID card they have. The Catcher will always get 1 fish card for his own ID card, plus an additional fish card for each ID he captured. A Runner will only get a fish card if he wasn't caught. Gameplay in Ice Cool is very easy to learn. One player starts as the catcher, while the rest of the players are the runners.

The new race mode introduces a team element. Players pair up with two penguins to pelt around the school. The aim is to be the first team to grab all their fish and make it to the designated finish room. Working together heightens the fist-pumping joy of success. And the wide-eyed, hand-over-mouth calamity of fumbles! This mode works with a single version of the game, but the racing dynamic is a lot more satisfying over a larger area. Given how competitive some of us are (sibling rivalries, anyone?), you can imagine how ICE COOL can – and will – become the smash hit of the evening at your games night. Designing your own layouts is entertainment in itself, like an oversized tangram puzzle. The first game we played had four rooms in the centre with enough space to allow them to rotate position. It was huge; using all the boxes from both games plus the lids for extra stability. And we only had three players! We enjoyed closing and opening doorways to link rooms and create new paths. The game consists of a series of rounds where players will rotate being the hall monitor and the students. The students want to steal the three fish in their colour without being caught, when one penguin gets all three fish the round ends. The fish are hanging above the doorways between rooms, all you have to do is pass through a doorway to get your fish. The basic rules and win conditions are the same in a five-player game. With six to eight players there’s an extra catcher. In this scenario, the hall monitors work as a team to bring their delinquent peers to account. Because catcher roles rotate, with seven players someone will play this role twice. This unevenness might ruffle the feathers of more particular players. But this game is best for light-hearted play.If there is one genre that I can’t get enough of it’s card drafting games. But if there is a second genre that I am addicted to, it’d have to be dexterity games. I love them. I think it’s because they always feel so unique when you compare them to each other. That and they are usually the genre of games that seems to inspire the most talked about moments. That one amazing shot will always create a lasting memory. The good-natured hilarity of failed shots is constant. This, along with the risk of getting caught, keeps players focused and engaged. The energetic gameplay adapts to a variety of group sizes. Combining with Ice Cool 2 caters for up to eight penguins. The result is more moments of tension and relief, catastrophe and victory. And more people to share those with. The hall monitor wants to catch the students by bashing into their penguins. Should you succeed, you take their hall pass, and should you get all the hall passes then the round ends. Fish and hall passes are all traded for scoring cards which can be one, two or three points, though as a bonus, collecting a pair of one’s allows you to take an extra turn. Once everyone has been caught by the hall monitor the game ends and you count up the points on your score cards. Amy’s Final Thoughts Perfect for game night – An international favorite, CATAN is the perfect social game for adults and kids to enjoy on family game night. It depends on the game. Some games are designed to be played multiple times, and can offer a different experience each time. Other games may not have much replay value, and are only meant to be played once. Are there any strategy elements involved in the game?

ID taken: If a Runner's ID card has been taken, don't worry! He is not out of the round and can still continue to play and collect fish! The ThinkFun Zingo Bingo Award Winning Preschool Game teaches matching, learning word recognition, pattern recognition, object identification, and counting skills. Each game includes 4 colorful penguin figures, 8 doors, 16 pieces of fish, 1 game board, 1 rule booklet and 4 colored bases.

If you only want one version I recommend Ice Cool 2, it does everything IceCool does and more. If you already own one of them, the other version makes a good gift for friends and family. Having just bought a copy for a friend I’m eager to see what colossal construction we make with three times the rooms! Average playtime – Enjoy hours of fast paced, interactive fun with an average playtime of approximately 60 minutes. What use is Maths when you could have the easy life you see the other penguins having when you watch David Attenborough on TV? Cutting class is so much more fun and there’s plenty of fish to be had in the kitchens, so long as the hall monitor doesn’t catch you! The ThinkFun Zingo Bingo Award Winning Preschool Game is suitable for pre-readers and early readers aged 4 and up. Each Runner attaches one of their fish tokens on each of the three doors marked with the fish symbol.
