Our partner Oliphante continues to rock the Italian board game scene with awesome ICECOOL tournaments! The ICECOOL summer began on July 6th with a competition in Milan, next to the San Filippo Neri church. The two finalists were twin brothers and the judge Don Denis could not choose between them, so he awarded first prize to both. That’s a first for the ICECOOL chronicles!
The hot Milanese sun couldn't melt the ICECOOL glaciers of fun!

On July 22nd, the ICECOOL penguin crew moved to the Italian coast for a tournament in Imperia. A few weeks later, on August 6th, some witnesses claim to have seen ICECOOL stars in Genoa, in a match at DungeonStoreGenova. There’s evidence that this contest was won by Alessandro Curatelli.
