EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Penguins Pool Party from Smart Games is a 3-D brainteaser with challenges designed for kids or adults. It comes with four ice block puzzle pieces, four penguins, a game board, and a booklet with 60 challenges. Players choose a challenge, and place the penguins in the water on the game board as shown in that challenge's picture. The object of the game is to figure out how to correctly arrange the ice block puzzle pieces around the swimming penguins on the board. They have to fit perfectly on the board without moving the penguins. The challenges increase in difficulty as you make your way through the booklet, and we found some really difficult to figure out. Thankfully, there's a key in the back with solutions for each challenge. This is a one-player game but it would also be great for multiple players to work together. It features a high quality design, and a lid that fits on the board for easy storage when not in use. 

Is It Fun?

The 3-D brainteasers offer a fun way to work on strengthening your brain, and encourages visual-spatial skills, logic, and problem-solving. With 60 challenges, this game is sure to keep you busy for a long time. Despite some of the challenges being difficult, we still found them fun to work on. We also appreciate the high quality design of the game with sturdy, plastic pieces, and that the lid fits on the board for easy storage when not in use. 

Who It’s For

Penguins Pool Party is recommended for kids ages 6 years old and up. We think its also a great option for adults as some of the puzzles are very challenging. It is a one-player game but it would be great for multiple players such a family to work together on the challenges. 

What To Be Aware Of

This brainteaser game comes with four ice block puzzle pieces, four penguins, a game board, and a booklet with 60 challenges. The board, and pieces are made of a sturdy plastic. There are Starter, Junior, Expert, and Master challenges, and we found some very challenging. A key in the back of the booklet offers the solutions for each challenge.
