Sorry Fire & Ice Brings Family Fun and Cunning Entertainment
For my son’s 12th birthday this month my daughter gave him Sorry! Fire and Ice, a classic board game turned intense. The new game has brighter colors, a few more tricks, some cunning techniques, and of course, the Fire and Ice cards to either help or hinder you.
In this new game, the objective still stays the same in which you try to be the first player to get all of your colored pawns into the HOME circle. However, there are only three pawns this time instead of four, and there is now a FIRE and ICE card. FIRE card is a benefit to you, in which you place the Fire ring around on of your pawns and at the beginning of your turn, you may move that pawn to the end of the board before taking your real turn. If you gain the ICE card, you place the Ice ring around an opponent’s pawn and s/he may not move that pawn until another ice card is drawn, thus removing it from their pawn and placing it on another opponent.
The FIRE and ICE cards offer a little more of a challenge and a lot more excitement to an otherwise repetitive game. Sorry! Fire and Ice is a 2-4 player game and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The game was originally manufactured by Parker Brothers, but is now by Hasbro.
I’d highly recommend playing Sorry! Fire and Ice with the family. It’s a great way to spend the evening cunningly planning your attacks to backstab each other with a lot of humor.
