This game is almost exactly like Trouble. If you already own that game, I would not recommended buying this game for the small twist: If a penguin lands on the end of a bridge, the player slides a lever and penguins on the top of the bridge fall into the "water" below, going back to their starting places.

There are 3 faults (1 major and 2 minor) with the game design:

(1) major - the penguins don't stay in their holes very well. It is very easy to knock the penguins out when you're reaching to pop the die, moving your pieces around, or just accidentally jostling the board a bit. On top of the bridges, the holes are especially too big and the penguins simply lean over. Some of the (unintentional) fun of the game comes from laughing at how many times you've accidentally knocked over someone's penguins.

(2) minor - the bubble with the die inside is not as effective as the one in Trouble. About a dozen times during our last game, the die got stuck between faces or didn't seem to bounce at all. Also note that the number two on the die is shown with 2 in-line pips (I think they're called) and not 2 diagonal ones like most dice.

(3) minor - the starting locations and ending locations are not color coded at all. Younger players may have difficulty remembering their home area or knowing the area they're supposed to finish at.

If you don't have Trouble, you might go with this, but having both, I can tell you that Trouble feels more substantially built.

A Kid's Review on December 28, 2011
Another reviewer summed this game up well. It's basically a ripoff of Trouble. Similar popper bubble with a die, similar rules with four pegs (penguins) you move around from home base to finish. The bubble is undersized; the die does not turn well and gets stuck in between faces constantly. A tiny jostle to the board to get the die to make up its mind sends all the penguins falling out of their holes. Fights ensue as to who was where. Even unintentional bumps to the board send the penuins falling over out of their spots. The concept of the "ice bridge" and making your opponents fall through is cute but the game physically was so poorly designed with regards to the penguins constantly falling out of their spaces that this is a game that I cannot see playing very often. We have Trouble and the Star Wars edition Trouble; both are much sturdier.

My son and daughter are ages six and three, and this had been their favorite game to play for over a year. We love to play it as a family too. Very fun, lots of action, cute game pieces (much cuter than the plain Trouble). It is great to have on hand for playdates too. All kids seem to love it. Highly recommended!

I haven't come across a more worse game to put together than this one! First the penguins are almost damaged in the sense that one cannot put them together! So if some pieces don't function well, the game itself is useless! I thought it would be a fun game but if it takes too much effort to assemble such a simple looking board game then there isn't any joy left in even trying to play it!

Very nice game, easy to set up and lots of fun. It took me a little while to understand some of the game but once you play it and continue to read the instructions it's becomes easy. My six and 2 year old grandchildren played the game, but the game is realy for children from 4 up. But if you have an adult helping the younger one it's fun. I would say that it's eeasier if you only have one younger child, having more than one would not work, I always play with the children, it's fun when an adult is partof the palyers. I love the Ice mountain, you get a lot of litlle penguins to place on the mounatin and it some places you can slide an area that if a penguine lands on it one of the other players can slide it and the penguine falls, making him start his journey all over again. It can be a long game, but it keeps the kids entertained. I love it !!!

Shocked how much of the game that I had to put together!! You even have to assemble the penguins. One of my penguins was missing the white part. There is no color coding on the game so that the children know where to start and finish. They enjoyed the game however poorly it was made!

Arrived quickly. Had a slight issue with the penguins being in two pieces that you snap together (they don't snap tight); my toddlers either unsnapped them or they keep falling apart - (it is a safety issue for littler ones, as I find one half of a penguin somewhere on the playroom floor every time they play with it). I'm going to try super-gluing the pieces together as well as super gluing the "bridges" to the game board.

Yes, it's Trouble with penguins. Apparently this upset a few buyers, however, if you read the description of the product you would expect this. I bought this as a gift for my 6 year old niece who loves penguins and it is adorable! Great price and very cute!
