Penguins Rock! Review
Did you know that Gentoo penguins construct nests out of stone? In the game Penguins Rock!, you can help a penguin pair gather rocks to build their nest. You can play the game with two to four players ages 5 and up.
Choose a penguin color (or two colors if it’s a two-player game) and take turns rolling the die to move the penguins from their nest to rockpiles to collect rocks. At first, you can only move your number 1 penguin, but once that penguin returns a rock to its nest, then you can roll twice on each turn – once to move the number 1 penguin and once to move the number 2 penguin. Penguins can move through other penguins’ nests, and if they land on a spot with a rock, they can steal the rock.
If you are the first player to complete a nest by having a rock in each of the six outer nest spaces, and you have one of your penguins in the nest center, you win!
The game comes with a game board, eight penguins, 24 rocks, and a die.
