Games for Brains: Hey, That's My Fish!

Hey, That's My Fish!
Playing Time: ~15
Players: 2-4

This is another one of those short and sweet little games that is easy to learn and quick to play. It comes in a small box, so I find myself throwing in the bag for when we go on trips (although, it is not a good car game, you need a table).  Basically, there are a bunch of tiles with different numbers of fish on them and you collect as many for your little penguins as possible.  The trick is, that as you play, you collect the tiles, altering the size and shape of the ice floe.  You can end up stranded or block other players onto little sections.

Brain Value:
The strategy in this game comes from how you end up removing the tiles.  If you can block yourself off into an area where you get a lot of fish, you give yourself an advantage.  There's some visual spacial reasoning (although not super heavy as in some other games). You also have to decide whether to go for tiles with 1, 2 or 3 fish, depending on their placement. On the other hand, the game is simple enough, that Xander probably could have started playing well at about 5.
