|This game is a playful spoof of all those aerial / space combat games that minimize or ignore the third dimension. Here --in a no-pretence world of 2D maneuver-- flightless birds battle each other on an Antarctic ice sheet. A token nod to Newtonian physics guides the action as foes slide and pivot (and slip and fall...) while trying to line each other up for a killing shot.|
In addition to the rules (8 pages), there are also some playing aides available:
A sheet of 9 blank stat cards to record penguin-type abilities and characteristics,
A sheet of 2 4" x 6" reference cards listing the firing rules and modifiers, and
A sheet of 2 4" x 6" reference cards listing the sample penguin-type stats.

|When the game is played
at a Convention, players keep track of how many times they make a kill
and how many times they are killed.
The player with the highest kill-minus-killed number is dubbed "Penguin Emperor" and has his/her name inscribed on the "Iceburg of Fame".
I would be happy to place
any deserving name (The honor requires at least two kills to qualify) upon
the trophy: just email me with the information and immortality is yours!
