The object of Thin Ice is to be the first player to collect three Winning Advice cards. Players receive a Winning Advice card when they give the best answer for getting out of an "unusual predicament". The game begins with a collection of unbelievable predicaments that have really happened to people. Players are asked what they would do to get out of the same situation. The "right answers" are included in the game on Response Cards. Unfortunately the cards are all mixed-up... and players must use whatever advice is written on the card they select... no matter what it says! Here is where the "gift of gag" will come in handy as you compete against a choice of unusual answers.
