The lunch break is almost there and all of the young penguins would finally get the fish they've been craving for. 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?

ICECOOL 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!

  • There's not much meat on the bone here, but it is a decent game for what it is. I can tell lots of thought went into the design; the placement of the rooms and doors; the way penguins are only just too tall to get through doors upright, combined with that little gap between the doors to make it more likely you will get stuck; the red lines so that people are not awkwardly trying to flick from a wall, and thus still have fun flicking (pretty crucial for a flicking game); the way the penguins move unpredictably in fortuitous and unfortuitous ways, causing tension, and yet you always feel like there is skill involved, and that you are never far away from a great shot.
  • The random draw of scoring cards is unfortunate. I play with the alternate rule that takes away the randomness, making it a much better game. The penguins are very fun to flick. Great dexterity game for the family.
  • Very light dexterity game for 2-4 players, plays in 15-30 minutes.Played a couple of times. Looks nice and has little rules. I'm not too fond of dexterity games, but my son is a big fan, so decided to add this to the collection, which does not contain any other dexterity games. Will probably not be a keeper, though.
  • fun family dexterity game

That was facinating to watch and thank you for the comparison.  I did not even know of the existence of #Carrom until this post.  I think we will enjoy #Crokinole a little more in our house but it is nice to be aware of a different game in case it takes off.  I think my son (who like more dexterity type games #ICECOOL #Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar )  will really enjoy #Crokinole in particular.  I grabbed a copy as a family gift for Christmas this year and have to try and patiently wait till then to break it out.

Definitely just spent an hour trying various things and mostly failing. Managed to get a decent #ICECOOL jumpshot though! Really gives me new appreciation for the time that went into your guys' YouTube video...

Having only played #ICECOOL, I'd say that one. It's a lot of fun and pretty simple. Flick 'em Up looks great too though :) 

As an intro to the genre? I'd say #ICECOOL or #Flick Em Up! if you're wanting something easy and quick to get into with your friends. If you're wanting dexterity games that have to do with balance, #Men At Work is a good one too.

I think my preference would be... #Flick Em Up!

I've actually been on the lookout for a flicking game too, and I'll likely go with #Flip Ships for the family.

#Flick Em Up! has been great to have with my son. I recommend it sinice you have a young son. It's more flexible to play with compared to #ICECOOL.

This is AWESOME! I don't even want to know how many takes some of those took haha But dang, you guys are good at #ICECOOL

Now the question is...... how many plays of #ICECOOL and #Flick Em Up! am I allowed to log for this? lol

#Ice Cool has been a theme in this thread. I'll have to pick it up sometime
