ICE COOL, Pyramids Of Penguins & More From Brain Games + Win A Game!

27 Comments

We stopped in with Brain Games to talk about what’s new with them. They have a few new ideas for people to get stuck into including ICE COOL 2 which expands upon the dexterity-based game with more flicking action as well as Pyramids of Pengqueen which is a restyling of another game all about racing and hidden information.

Win A Copy Of Pyramids Of Pengqueen

We also delve into some of their other games, all with an awesome quick and easy feel to them. The first is a trick-taking game with a bit of a difference in Pikoko. This sounds like a fascinating game for a group of friends as well as younger gamers…how cool is that!

We also have Orc-lympics which is a little twist on the sports genre in card form where you will be pushing your luck to try and win certain events.

I wonder if the Peng-Queen knows Pingu?

Some great family games here. My kids will play Scythe but they also like something much lighter and these fit the bill.

Their games do seem light and fun. I wonder how Ice Cool holds up for adults after a few games?
