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. Sounds pretty straightforward¸ doesn't it? It's a lot more fun than that. You see¸ each player has to decide where to skate before actually moving the skater. 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?
