NHL Ice Breaker: The Card Hockey Game
From the Publisher...
IT'S TIME TO BREAK THE ICE!
NHL Ice Breaker - The Card Hockey Game is licensed by the National Hockey League® and features all 30 of the league’s teams. You get all the great action of the game on the ice with NHL Ice Breaker. Game play is built around CSE Games' specially-designed 54-card playing deck (52 standard suited cards plus two Jokers). The game is based on the simple mechanic of high-card or high-hand wins. Opponents play their card(s) simultaneously and the player with highest card or highest hand executes his/her action indicated on the card played.
As players win hands, the puck is moved up the ice and toward the opponent's net. Along the way, players may land on special “Ice Breaker” squares, which can shift momentum in an instant. Once in the Shooting Zone, it's a classic contest of shooter versus goalie.
NHL Ice Breaker separates itself from other hockey-based games in that it has a true hockey 'feel'. The game is both accurate and fast-paced. Combining elements of popular card games, players must decide how best to play their cards. Cards can be played individually, in pairs, two pair, or three-of-a-kind. It is up to the player to decide how cards are played. The specially-designed playing deck adds a level of strategy, yet immediate familiarity, not seen before in the gaming world.
The learning curve of NHL Ice Breaker is remarkably low. Typically, the game is learned within a couple of minutes, aided by the built-in familiarity that the playing deck offers. NHL Ice Breaker is designed for one to four players, ages eight (8) and up.
