You get all the great action of NHL®-hockey with NHL Ice Breaker: The Card Hockey Board Game. It’s easy to learn, fast-paced and makes for competitive hockey fun.
NHL Ice Breaker is a hockey-simulation board game and playing card game. Manage your cards and battle for puck possession and advance it up the ice for a scoring chance. Just like the game on the ice, the object is to out-score your opponent. One time through the deck represents one period of play; three time through the deck and that’s a full game.
While it has all the great elements of a classic board game, NHL Ice Breaker action derives 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 fast-paced intensity of the game of hockey.
NHL Ice Breaker features all 30 National Hockey League teams and is remarkably easy to pick up, given the familiarity of the standard 54-card playing deck and some simple card game mechanics. NHL Ice Breaker takes a minute to set up and is recommended for ages eight (8) and up.
For one to four players, NHL Ice Breaker takes about 30 minutes to play.
