Ice Lake is a board game for 2 - 4 players, ages 9 and up. It's a perfect family game, designed to be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Worried about playing down to your kids? Not with this game. In this one, you'll be playing to keep up!
Each player is an ice skater at the annual Ice Lake races.
The game board is a picture of Ice Lake. Players move their skaters across the lake, leaving cracks behind them. If a skater is ever completely surrounded by cracks, he or she is out of the game.
The goal is to be the last one skating.
It's a lot more fun than that. Each player has to decide where to skate before actually moving the skater. At the beginning of each turn, you plan out where you're going to move - in secret, of course. You don't just take a step, see where everyone else is, and then take another.
Well, you could - but by that time, your opponents will probably have skated a circle around you.
How fast will you skate? What do you think your friends are going to do? How will you get around them without letting them get around you?
