Pickles to Penguins Party Game by Outset Media


Pickles to Penguins is the quick-thinking picture-linking party game! Don't fret if the party gets frantic - the guests are probably just having a blast playing Pickles to Penguins - the quick-paced party game where you link the pictures to win. This group game for party time will have your guests laughing, if you're not arguing! 

Get rid of your cards the quickest by figuring out what your cards and the cards in play have in common. Do they share a colour? Are they both things you find in a salad or bring to a party? For example, the PICTURE has to have something in common with the other picture like: MILK and HONEY go in tea or CLOVER attracts BEES or KITES and HOT AIR BALLOONS fly in the sky - just make the pictures link together and you have a connection!

Pickles to Penguins is available at Mozart, Einstein & Me!
