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 "the Catcher") – his aim will be to catch each other penguin and get points for that. The others (also known as "Runners") 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!
Etienne's Game of the Week
Ice Cool is a ridiculous game.
We are penguin students at a high school (Ice Cool) who are trying to escape the hall monitor to recover scattered fish throughout the school.
This is a family, dexterity game where the players flick their penguin through the different parts of the school before the hall monitor catches them. Ice cool is a hilarious game where the impossible shot occasionally succeeds and players burst in laughter and can't believe what just happened.
If played among friends while drinking, the fun lies in the completely missed shots and laughing at his friends when they can't get out of the starting room. As a family, this is a game where everyone has a real chance at winning thanks to the random point system.
Finally, Ice Cool 2 adds a new school and is combinable with the first. Ice Cool is the perfect game of dexterity: hilarious and occasionally impressive.
