Description Edit | History

A Fistful of Penguins is a quick, engaging family dice game of gathering animals to add to your zoo. After three rounds, the person who has made the most money displaying animals wins.

To play, roll the special animal dice to get a selection of animals to add to your zoo. Each animal has a unique way to earn you money: Kangaroos score by the square of their number, so if you want to score them, you should try to get a large group; lions are worth big bucks, but if you score lions, then only the lions score; camels are a decent $5 each, but they score zero if any lions are present; squirrels steal money from the other players; and moose score the most, but each moose must be paired with a squirrel in order to score.

Penguins don't earn you money, but they get you penguin tokens. A penguin token can be used to add another die to your group, or to reroll as many of your dice as you wish. This makes it very valuable to start your turn with a fistful of penguins...

The basic version is intended for casual family play and to teach gamers the faces of the dice. If you are rating the game for a BGG audience, please play the advanced version before rating the game.
