Ice Cool Practice Rounds & Demo!

Every Monday @ 5:30pm - Starting on May 07 in Toronto

401 Games in partnership with Luma will be hosting an Ice Cool Tournament on Saturday, June 9th. To prepare for this great event we will be hosting a series of Ice Cool Demos and Practice rounds every Monday in the month of May to get you ready to partake in the main event!

Entry into the tournament will be FREE and there is great prizes to be won such as promos, copies of the game and the grand prize being a trophy and a pass to Gen Con 2018!

"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!"
