You start by creating a physical tower of ice from plastic rings in the middle of the board and carefully filling it with jewels. Each turn players choose a colour of gems to collect. The lead player then carefully removes a ring which results in jewels falling on to the board. Some are lost into holes and some are available for collection. Each player collects their jewels into their secret stash and that go is over. It's as simple as that.
As you play, each player gets a turn to remove rings from the tower. After all the rings have gone and players have collected their jewels, the board can be lifted to display how many jewels each player has managed to stash in their secret cave. The winner is the player with most jewels.
It's a joyful combination of pleasing tactility and clever board design. Players need to decide how careful to be as they remove each ring, so that they avoid giving their opponents more jewels that they manage to collect. Add to this the fact that some jewels are lost each round and you have a compellingly simple game of risk and reward with a fun final reveal of who has the most gems.
- Practise creating the tower and removing rings before playing the game competitively.
- Select a treasure colour at the start of the game and use it throughout the whole game.
- Return any accidentally removed jewels back into the tower.
