Challenge a friend or two (or three) in this quick play, strategic movement and planning game.  You'll need foresight and strategy to get your penguins to huddle together before everyone else.

How do you play Penguins Huddle Up?
Setup phase. Take it in turns to randomly place the ice and the player to your right's penguins on the game board.

That's the setup.  You're ready to play.  Let's go.

The aim of the game is to move your penguins so that they're all standing next to each other.  

Each turn you can take one action to move a penguin either
- to an adjacent space, or
- they can jump over another penguin, or
- they can dive into a hole and emerge through another hole on the board.

A player wins when their penguins all stand together.

For a more complex game penguins need to be grouped so that they're all at the same height.  Some penguins are shorter than others and need to stand on the ice blocks in this mode of the game.
