MY THOUGHTS

I had never heard of this show but that doesn't surprise me because we didn't get Nickelodeon channel.  This show wouldn't have been something I would have watched back then anyway. 

I watched it yesterday and the acting isn't the greatest and I really thought this show was boring but I don't know a re people who actually did enjoy this.  If you liked the show when you were a child you might like this but personally it just isn't my cup of tea.

CSE Sends Chills of Real NHL® Action in Ice Breaker Board Game
  
Home Ice Advantage! CSE Games says that families and fans can now bring all of the excitement of real NHL hockey into their own homes with its breakthrough, breakout NHL® Ice Breaker card game. The official National Hockey League licensed card game is now available.
 
NHL® Ice Breaker: The Card Hockey Board Game (MSRP $24.99, for 1-4 players ages 8+) features all 30 National Hockey League teams and offers all of the fast-paced, slap shot, quick reaction play through a remarkably easy to learn game with  familiar card game mechanics.   
 
Fabio Del Rio, president of CSE Games, an Ontario, Canada-based game company, explained, "We call it a board ‘game’ checking version of competitive action hockey. We’ve been able to package the fun of NHL hockey with classic board game strategy.”
 
The fun and challenge of NHL Ice Breaker is derived from the specially-designed 54-card playing deck. Each card allows players to make the pass, take the shot, make the save, or deliver the big hit, simulating all the intensity of the game of hockey. Each time through the deck equals one period of play. Three times through the deck is an official NHL Ice Breaker complete game.
 
With NHL Ice Breaker, CSE was diligent in providing some fundamental skill sharpening. By playing Ice Breaker, players practice counting and language, while stimulating visual perception and decision-making. The game supports quick mental processing and cognitive skills in a fun competitive hockey atmosphere.

MY THOUGHTS

I got this board/card game to review. Both my husband and I are big hockey fans so I figured this would be the perfect game for us.

Anyway, this is a fun game for kids and adults (ages 8 and up) who love hockey .  

It is a fun game that I know we will play again and again in the future.

I give this 5 out of 5.
