Penguin Pile-up Game by Ravensburger

Ravensburger Penguin Pile-Up

There is so much ado in the penguin colony. The iceberg shakes with all the commotion. All the penguins want a place on the iceberg, but only those who can keep their balance can avoid the icy water!

Before we started the game we needed to assemble all the penguins by adding the penguins’ front, back and wings.

This was really easy to do, repeating the process for all 20 penguins. There is also a cardboard ring that you can place under the iceberg, this will reduce the wobbling, so if you have younger player this would be a suitable option, and simply remove the ring for trickier game play.

How to play Penguin Pile-Up?

Steady hands and careful planning are needed to balance all your penguins on the slippery iceberg. Take it in turns with the youngest playing first, so Grace went first she needed to pick up a penguin from her pile and carefully place it on the iceberg … will the penguin stand firm, wobble or tumble down?

Be careful though, because any penguins that are knocked down, you’ll have to pick up and keep in your own pile and play continues to the next person.

As the number of penguins on the iceberg grows, it becomes harder to find a good spot to place the existing penguins. The first player to carefully have all their penguins balanced is crowned the winner.

Our Thoughts

Penguin pile up is a great fun game for children and even adults will enjoy it too! When you think you have nearly won, a quick fall could knock a few penguins falling and the whole game will change.

Grace and Jake have equally enjoyed this game, it makes as great game to play after school now the colder days are here.

Penguin Pile-Up is suited for ages 4 and over 99 and best played with 1-5 players and is available from Amazon.
