How to Play Ice Tumble
First, players need a steady hand to create unique three-dimensional sculptures in this fun, tactile, spatial reasoning, and fine motor skills game. Players add pieces to the structure being careful not to let any fall, and are encouraged to balance stunts while interlocking ice blocks. As a result, Ice Tumble tests physics without linear constraints and helps players practice risk management skills. Have fun placing blocks to make it difficult for opponents but watch out because it all might come tumbling down when it’s your turn! Subsequently, the first player to successfully place all their ice blocks and their fox pawn on the sculpture wins. Ice Tumble is great for 2-4 players ages 7 and up and takes 15 minutes to play.
