On April 29th, board game fans all around the globe celebrated International Tabletop Day. For sure, our rascal penguins had to show their beaks in two ICECOOL tournaments that took place in the USA – in the states of Utah and Missouri.
The ICECOOL tournament at the Northern Utah Gamers Guild (NUGG) on April 29th was a real blast! SaltCON, the local board game convention organization, helped to arrange this exciting event for 16 competitors. ICECOOL turned the atmosphere boiling hot as the participants showed their best flicking skills.
Wisdom from ICECOOL penguin life: If you are trying to skip class, always watch out for the hall monitor!
Organizers observed: “Everyone really enjoyed trying to make the penguins hop, turn corners, and go through multiple doorways to grab the fish they need while avoiding the player that was acting as the hall monitor.” This time Ryan Bruns was the best penguin-flicker and received the beautiful ICECOOL trophy.
