The object of Penguins on Ice is to pack the ice so that every puzzle tile can fit on the game board while making sure that all the penguins are in the correct spot. Cute, clever, and challenging, with icebergs that can change shape, Penguins on Ice includes sixty challenges and is suitable for ages six and older.

    Penguins on Ice a Hit! March 8, 2014
    Reviewer: Stephanie S.  
    I recently bought Penguins on Ice for my daughter's birthday. She loves it! Everyone has played with it. Even though it's a one player game, there is always a crowd around! She says it is the best present she received this year. Wow!

    High-Quality Fun Game! September 29, 2012
    Reviewer: CCA  
    I purchased Penguins on Ice mainly as a present for one of my sons who loves penguins and logic puzzles. He LOVES this game and plays it frequently. I have been very pleased that all of my other children love Penguins on Ice as well and each enjoy taking a turn to play the game. Each child is able to play it at their own skill level. They have each worked through the cards from the beginning of the pack and remember which card they have progressed their way up to when they play again the next time. Penguins on Ice is a fun game that offers practice in logic skills while being challenging and fun at the same time. Excellent game!

    A bit too hard for six October 3, 2011
    Reviewer: KAMiller from Rockford, IL United States  
    I bought this for my six year old.  He is  really pretty adept at solving puzzles of this type, but this one is really a challenge for him.  That being said, he hasn't really had much chance to try it out, since he can't seem to get it away from his older siblings and dad!

    It comes nicely packaged, but is a bit tricky for the younger kids to put it away, as you have to have the penguins in just right for the top to go on.

    Fun way to learn and practice skills of logic August 3, 2011
    Reviewer: Karen Cox from Waynesboro, GA United States  
    Penguins on Ice has provided challenge for all ages in our family, pre-schoolers to adults.  My 4-year old is able to do the first stage of puzzles, my 9  and 11 year olds are able to do the first and second stages, and I am challenged by the 3rd and 4th!  The durable, cute, and colorful pieces are fun to look at and easy to handle.  The concepts of shifting shapes and logic are introduced in this game in an understandable and interesting way.  It is ideal for travel, as the pieces are large enough not to be easily lost, and can be held on the lap to make travel less boring.  I think children who cannot easily solve the puzzles can still benefit from placing the pieces in their correct location by following the puzzle solutions.  Very good purchase!
