A card-laying game (like a tile-laying game, but with cards) in which players are throwing a party for penguins.br/br/Cards are either Penguin Guests or the Entertainers that perform for them. Each turn, a player must add one penguin to the party grid and may also claim any penguin as his own. As Entertainer Cards become sufficiently surrounded, the Entertainers perform, and there is a scoring round. Players who own penguins that enjoyed the performance get points.br/br/Importantly, the player who scored -- but scored the fewest points -- gets to keep the Entertainer Card. This card can be turned in to break a Penguin Placement rule during the game, or saved for potential bonus points at the end.br/br/The game ends when the Entertainers run out, which takes about 45 minutes at most. It is designed to work equally well for 2, 3, or 4 players.br/br/
