Game idea

The Inuits are Indians who live high up in the north of the globe. They nourish themselves with hunting and fishing. Fishing in the ice is not easy at all: In order to fish, holes first have to be hacked into the ice.

Rules of Play

The inuits are waking on the ice. Roll both dice. Does the white dice show the face of the Inuit? Then your Inuit moves as many squares (holes) as dots are shown on both dice.
Does the white dice show the ice axe? Then your Inuit can hack open as many holes as dots are shown on both dice, using the point of the fishing rod.
Does the white dice show the fish? Then your Inuit may fish in as many holes directly adjacent to him as dots are shown on both dice.
Does the white dice show the question mark? You may choose which of the three actions your Inuit should do (move, hack, fish).
Does the blue dice show the drop? A whole ice floe (an ice floe consists of 4-5 holes and is clearly outlined) will start to melt: put the blue drop on a floe of your choice. Make sure you do not cover a hole with it. No Inuit may walk on this floe.
Does the blue dice show the ice crystal? Any of the holes already hacked open freezes over again. Put the white crystal on this hole.
Does the blue dice show only dots? There is no temperature change. The dots are added to the dots on the white dice.
