Very Good game that is quite tactical. Which is surprising considering the simple rules. Easy enough to grasp for children while still being very deep strategic game if played by adults.
More strategic than it appears, yet playable by very young children. There is an engineer in our group that seemingly cannot be beaten (by any of us), so we don't play it much when he's present. He must have figured out something we haven't seen. My tip? Carve out a section to isolate one of your penguins.
A fiddlier, less interesting DVONN. Sure it's multiplayer, but quite frankly I have little to no interest in multiplayer abstracts--especially when Through the Desert is so much better and more open. Cute, but easily forgettable is the final verdict.
Super simple and easy to teach. At the same time there's a solid amount of room for strategy. Really it's a straight forward abstract game with a penguin theme painted over it. It definitely gets harder to strategize as the player count goes up. Setup is a pain though and drops my rating a lot.
Very simple to set up and explain, it also plays in minutes. Looks like a child's game but can be played strategically and an experienced player should always win over a first timer. 2017-12 Decided it wasn't getting played so a friend wanting a copy should have it.
Fun theme lightens up this otherwise solid abstract. I have only played with 4 players and the game is a little chaotic this way, but it is still fun. We learned that cutting off other penguins was more important than solely focusing on 3-fish floes.
This is a pretty cool little abstract with a short play-time. The strategy can be really intense and yet not so deep that you have to spend a ton of time thinking about where to go.
Setup is a pain, and takes too long. Aggressive area control game. Fun wooden penguins. Approachable gateway game; easy to learn mechanics. A "cute" cut-throat game that kids enjoy due to the theme and simple mechanics.
Looks like a fun, family style, puzzle game, and to a certain extent it is. However, the entire game comes down to penguin placement. Once players get a knack for the game it becomes fairly easy to determine which players have the best (or worst) chances of victory, but players don't have enough options to effectively turn to the tide.
