This is the ice country “Meltyland” where polar bears and penguins live happily together.
The hungry polar bears found a flock of their favorite preys on ices.
However, the ices are about to melt, and everything will sink into the sea if everyone is on the same ice.
So, cooperate (!?) with penguins and outfox other polar bears to get a lot of preys!
◆ゲームの流れ / Game Play
The game consists of 3 rounds, and players perform a total of 4 “hunting” in each round.
For each round, 5 prey cards (ices) are shown on the field, and each player uses a polar bear token to secretly tell which one to aim at.
When everyone is ready, share their tokens with each other, shouting “Three, two, one, Zappaaaan!!” and move the tokens onto the prey cards.
Every time (except for the 1st time) players finish hunting, the prey card with the most tokens on it melts and sinks.
After the 4th hunting is over, each player gets VPs equal to the number written on the remaining two prey cards multiplied by the number of polar bear tokens.
At the end of the 3rd round, the player with the highest VPs (polar bears that ate a lot of preys) wins.
Players can use penguin (disturbance) tokens to make other preys sink more easily so that the one they want doesn’t sink.
At the 2nd and 3rd rounds, more penguin tokens will be distributed depending on the score difference from the provisional 1st place, so it will be a game you don’t know who will win until the end!
There are 5 types of special cards in addition to the regular VP cards (2 to 6).
Many of the special cards allow players to increase or decrease the VP written on the card, creating a more heated game.
Of course, you can play with just regular number cards, so try combining them as you like, depending on the level of the players.
