Object of the Game

Each player has a group of penguins, who must be fed as many fish as possible. It is a classic tactical game where each player tries to cut off the opponents from access to larger pieces of land thereby providing access to the most fish.

Flow of the game

At the beginning of the game, players alternate by placing their four penguins (three players place three penguins and four players place two penguins) on ice floes displaying only one fish. To do this, click on your desired piece of land. Then drag and drop the penguin there.


A penguin can move in each of the six hexagonal directions as many spaces as desired in a straight line. The penguin, however, cannot jump over a hole or another penguin. The ice where the penguin leaves from, will be removed from the game and the number of fish shown on this tile will be awarded credited as points. This reduces the number of the remaining tiles each turn.

End of the Game

The game ends when the last player has made his last legal move. Some players may need to pass as they may not have any legal moves left. Players score the number of fish on each piece they remove. The fish on the piece the penguins stand on at the end of the game also count for the scoring. The player with the most points wins. In case of a tie, the player who removed the most tiles, wins. If there is still a tie, the win is shared.

Game Options
