We’re back with another family board game recommendation, this time with a game that will have you cheering on cute, colorful penguins: ICECOOL.
ICECOOL is a 2016 game designed by Brian Gomez and published by Brain Games. The kids call it the “penguin game” because it involves flicking little plastic penguins around a cardboard maze decked out to look like a penguin school in the Antarctic. One player is the Catcher, trying to tag all the other players, the Runners, who are basically playing hooky from school. ICECOOL is light, fun, and a little bonkers, especially when you combine it with its sequel ICECOOL2.
