Product Description

Can you find room for all your penguins on the iceberg?Reiner Knizia's fast-paced and surprisingly devious new game is fun for the whole family! Stacking penguins in a pyramid may seem easy, but watch out! Penguins will only stand atop another penguin of their own color, and if you're not careful there will be nowhere left to stand!

From the Manufacturer

Penguin is positively pleasurable pursuit of piling plastic penguins! Designed by master gamesmith Reiner Knizia, Penguin is easy to learn, easy to play, and shockingly cutthroat to master. Penguin includes: 36 Penguin pieces1 bag6 player screens39 Penalty Point chips (in 1's, 3's, and 5's)

Another simple and elegant Knizia (originally meant to be a card, and probably they should have left it that way) game. Playable by kids and adults, resulting in a wonderfully funny and fast playing filler, (despite the stacking flaw).

Quick dexterity fix: don't even try to stack the penguins! Just form a 2-D pyramid on the table i.e., place your penguins in a square, starting with the row of 8 boxes, and then making your way to the "top" of the pyramid. Or better yet, get a printable board at boardgamegeek!!

Do not waste your money on this game. The concept is great, but it doesn't work very well in reality. You are supposed to stack the penguins according to color, however it is nearly impossible to stack the penguins due to their shape. It is very frustrating. I wish I could return it.

My daughters, aged 9 and 11, and I played this game for the first time this evening. We thought we'd try it once without penalty points just to see if we could get the concept. Well, the concept is easy, but the stacking is ridiculously difficult. It seems like the game would involve careful balancing so as to not knock the other penguins out of place. Instead, it involves shoving and twisting a new penguin into place while holding the rest together. Only once were any penguins knocked down in our game, and only by the youngest kid when the tower was fairly small. My kids asked several times if we would just return this game because it didn't work at all. We didn't buy through Amazon, so unfortunately, we won't be returning. I don't even want to pawn it off on another family. Might see if our occupational therapist would like it for fine motor practice. I really like the idea of the simple game play, the mild strategy of trying to place all your pieces, etc, and would love to see a redesigned version that actually worked. The developer really should have play-tested this game before releasing, and I am disappointed that my local game store owner didn't warn me that it was frustratingly difficult to play properly.

I didn't really understand the point of the game and all of the kids and I agreed it was a waste of time. SOOOOo many other great games out there.
