Penguin Plunge: Clockwise & Counter-Clockwise Mat Game for PreK to 1st
Teachers: Grayscale and Full Color Included!!
This is a simple one to five player game for preschool to 1st-grade kiddies! Players will race to get all their penguins back to Mount Penguin in the center of the mat. Players move their penguins by drawing cards and moving their penguins according to what their drawn card says. Gameplay is not cooperative but is individual, so gameplay will not affect other players. This game does require a little bit of reading, but the rules and picture playing cards are simple to grasp.
Playing the Game (Rules):
On Round 1, all players start with 5 penguins of their choice and sets all of them on any 1 of the 4 outer islands. No penguins should be in the center on Mount Penguin. The Youngest player goes first and then play passes to the left.
On your turn, draw one card from the deck and then move your penguins according to what the card says. That card may tell you to move a penguin clockwise, counterclockwise, to the middle, to move two penguins in a certain direction, or to miss your turn (see the “Cards” section for more info). You may move a penguin from any of the outer islands to perform your card action. You may also move a penguin from two different islands, on the same turn, if you get a wild card that asks you to move two penguins. Your turn is now over. Place the card you used in the discard pile.
A player can only move a penguin to the middle if the card drawn tells you to.
To win, a player must get all of their penguins to the middle on Mount Penguin. The first player to do so is declared the winner of the Penguin Plunge round!
If you choose, play may continue for up to 6 rounds. For each round, all players may add 1 penguin to the rest of their penguins on an outer island of their choice.
