ICE COOL (Brain Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 6 and up, 3o minutes; $39.99)
As a kid growing up in Brooklyn, in those pre-internet, pre-video game days, a popular game in the neighborhood was called Skelly. With Skelly, you took some chalk and designed a large playing area with numbered squares through which you shot a bottle cap (!) from numbered space to numbered space and then back again. It was incredibly simple and incredibly fun. When I saw this new game, I flashed back to Skelly as this one reminded of it – but at a big upgrade. The game? Ice Cool.
