In Hey, That's My Fish!, players want to catch as many fish as possible with their waddle of penguins. Each turn, a player moves one penguin in a straight line over hex-shaped ice tiles with 1, 2 or 3 fish on them. The player then collects the hex from where the penguin started its movement from the table, thereby creating a gap which penguins can't cross on future turns. When a penguin can't move, it's removed from play with its owner claiming the tile on which it stands. The player who collects the most fish wins.
Hey, That’s My Fish! is a surprisingly excellent 2-player, light strategy game.
The game plays OK with 3 players; by 4 players the game degrades drastically as events between turns leaves little room for strategy or ability to influence the game.
Where this game shines is with younger players as it teaches delayed gratification i.e. I can go here and get 3 points now.... or I can go there, get 2 points and block you out of many more points. Some of the proudest gaming moments I had when they click on to this mentality :-)
Playing with little penguins sitting on cute ice floats and watching them slowly melt into islands?! Yes please!!! This is a really cute game to play, and you Can get quite strategic with cutting others off - my 8yr old giggles with joy when he cuts mum off! The only downside is setting up all the little tiles again!
