A brilliant game is one that a 6-year-old can play yet a 66-year-old will find hard to master. And Hey, That's My Fish! is just that game.

COMPONENTS

Like most "Eurogames," the pieces in this German-made game by Mayfair are about as high quality as you'll find. You get 60 two-inch-wide hexagonal game tiles that are used to create a board that never plays the same twice. Each tile has a double-sided illustration of an ice floe containing one, two, or three fish. The tiles are linenized paper affixed to thick cardboard. Sixteen two-inch-high penguin figurines (in four colors, each color with four unique poses) fill most of the box. Each penguin is hand-painted.

GAME PLAY

When was the last time you could explain the rules of a strategy game in less than a minute? Randomly place the 60 tiles in a rough square. Each player takes one set of four colored penguins and places one penguin on any of the tiles that contain one fish. Each player adds one penguin in turn until all are placed.

Each turn, a player moves one penguin piece any distance across the floes in a straight line. The only limit is open water or meeting another penguin. The tile the penguin moved from is removed from the board and is kept by the player. This creates open water. The object is to gather the most fish, as depicted on the tiles the player's penguins landed on.

This is a game that is incredibly simple to learn. Basically, there are tiles (ice) that the penguins stand on. The penguins are placed on the tiles one at a time as folks take turns placing their penguins. The penguin must stand on a tile that has only one fish on it (for the first turn). Each player has multiple penguins (a different amount of penguins depending on the # of players) The penguin can move straight ahead as far as it wishes but can not hop over other penguins. As soon as a penguin is moved, the last tile it was standing on is collected by the owner of the penguin. Each of these tiles have anywhere from one to three fishes on it. At the end of the game, the number of fish are counted up on the tiles, and the person with the most fish wins. As the penguins are moved, each player tries to isolate the other players from the tiles by taking away tiles around them. The players also try to land on tiles with the most fish on them. The game changes each time because the tiles are randomly laid out in the general shape of a square, so the placement of the tiles with the most fish changes each game. That's pretty much it. It's simple enough for my 6 year old niece to learn and enjoy, and has enough strategy that my 9 year old niece loves it too. A simple game with strategy. Good fun!

I got the deluxe edition, which comes with the nicer penguins, and was glad I did. They are colorful and very well constructed. Definitely worth the extra money.

Many adults will see this game - which kids enjoy! - and think "oh, there's penguins and they're catching fish... this is gonna be a real blast for me...", but beware: a great game of strategic thinking is disguised under those cute penguin figurines.

This is a game that adults and children can play together that children will enjoy and adults could be stumped by "analysis paralysis" (i.e., "if I move this here, then they could go there and cut me off... maybe if I go here? no, wait!" etc., etc., until someone finally yells, "just MOVE already!")

Seriously, this is a fun game that adults will appreciate as a classic like chess or backgammon, while kids will forget they even have Candyland in the game closet anymore.

This game is great. I like strategy games, but I hate games with too many rules. Simple to learn, but lots to think about, those are my favorite games. This is a great example. Over Thanksgiving, we played it with my 6 year old niece. I again got swept up in the strategy, and she liked it so much she asked Santa for her own copy for xmas.

I purchase a lot of boardgames for my 5-year-old son and I to play; this time we wanted to involve Mommy, who hates rules. Hey! That's My Fish is the simplest game ever, yet is a lot of fun and quick to play. You place your penguins on a board and slide them around the ice, capturing fish and blocking the other players from their catch. It has quite the insidious strategic element to it, which I love.

My son loves it and has wanted to play it each night; Mommy had fun playing, so the game wins with her. The more players, the better It is much more fun than the other penguin-themed board game we have, Pengoloo, which is just a slightly modified matching game. I purchased the game for slightly under $25, which I think is about the right price.

Problems are minor:

1) It takes a little time to set-up the board each time by laying out the hexagons into a pattern.

2) This "Deluxe" release, meaning it comes with figurines instead of chits to represent the penguins, should have come with a draw bag to pull the hexes from randomly to lay out the board.

3) The rules state the hexes only have fish printed on one side, but they are printed identically on both sides; not that it matters, you are supposed to know where the fish are unless, I guess, if you're playing the game randomly.

4) The hexes slide around a bit, and while this simulates ice floes breaking apart, you need to keep adjusting the board during play.

All in all, great game.
