However, it also adds Tasks on 1 point cards, fish moving power for 2 point cards, and introduces new trick-shot challenges that allow players to draw an additional fish card from the deck if task is completed successfully.
The box contains, 5 game boxes, 4 penguin figures, 16 fish figures, 53 cards, and game rules. The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 6 and up, and plays in about 30 minutes. MSRP is $39.95.
Ice Cool 2 can be combined with the original game to engage race mode, create new layouts, and find other ways to play for up to 8 players.
