Doodle Rush is a fast-paced party game that will keep you on your toes for the whole time.

In each game, each player receives two cards with total of six words that the player has to draw. The game consists of six 1-minute rounds: three drawing rounds and three guessing rounds, which are interchanged. In the drawing rounds, the players try to draw as many of their words as possible, whereas in the guessing rounds they try to correctly guess other player drawings and want their own ones to be guessed.

Everyone plays at the same time, therefore the gameplay is very active and you have to be quick and attentive. In the end, the player with the most points (drawings that they guessed + their own drawings that were guessed by others) wins.

You won't believe it!

These penguins are real rascals: if your flick is good enough, they can slide not only straight, they can 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!

 

Ice Cool 2 is both a standalone game and an expansion for Ice Cool.

Ice Cool 2 if played separately is the good old Ice Cool with some extras like:

  • Tasks on 1 point cards

  • Fish moving power for 2 point cards

  • Optional tournament scoring

BUT if you combine both sets then what you get is:

  • Multiple new layouts

  • New game mode called The Race

  • Games playable for up to 8 players

  • Chance to create your own new layouts

Pikoko is a trick-taking game that follows conventional trick-taking rules with two twists:

  • Each round, players receive a hand of eight cards, but they don't see their own cards — only cards held by the other players.

  • Each player plays cards of the player to their left, not their own cards.

Pyramid of Pengqueen is a game with asymmetrical goals. While one player as the Mummy tries to catch tomb raiders, the other players try to secure as many treasures as possible from the Pyramid.

The game is played with magnetic playing pieces on two sides of a vertical board, so the Mummy player cannot see the pieces of the tomb raiders. As the Mummy piece consists of two parts (one on each side of the board) the tomb raiders on the other hand know the movements of the Mummy.

They move their pieces via dice rolls and judging by the color of the tomb raiders treasure goal cards and their dice rolls, the Mummy player tries to deduce their position on the board, while they try to evade him.

When the Mummy moves over a tomb raider, he is "caught" by the Mummy magnet, thrown into the dungeon and loses some life points. The mummy wins when it earns a certain number of life points, while the tomb raiders have to secure a certain amount of treasures.
