Ice Cult is an eye-catching brain teaser for up to four tacticians.
Four transparent cubes made from acrylic plastic with icons on them are the heart of the game. On a player's turn, they first rotate two cubes 90º two times; to do this, you sandwich two cubes with your fingers, pick them up to rotate them, then place them back in the holder. You can rotate the same pair of cubes twice or two different pairs.
After rotating the cubes, the player moves the corresponding playing pieces — no matter to whom they belong! — according to the symbols now on top of the cubes along four racing tracks. Note that everyone is able to move everybody's playing pieces, and since the playing pieces can give each other "piggyback rides", you have to be clever to make the right moves at the right time in order to move all of your own playing pieces off the ice first.
