Hey, That's My Fish! is a traversal game where you are penguins racing to catch the most fish. You move around the board of hexagons in straight lines, but as you pickup your fish you also destroy the ice. As the board deteriorates you fight to get the last fish, or to melt the ice and maroon your opponents.

Each turn, you move one of your penguins in a straight line and pickup the piece you started from to earn the points on the tile. So you need to think ahead not only to which tiles have the most points, but which location you want to be in on the next turn.

As you progress, the board has more and more holes in it. This limits the movement of penguins, who can't hop over the holes. More strategy emerges about which tiles to stop on, as creating more holes in the right place can foil or maroon your opponent. When a penguin can't move, it's removed from play. The player who collects the most fish wins.

It's a simple game that is different each time you play - both the initial layout of the board and how it deteriorates as you play.
