ICE-CREAM MAKER MODE (easy, 4+ years)
Place the cone in the cone-holder and stack up as many ice-cream balls as possible.
ICE-CREAM BALANCING ACT MODE (intermediate, 5+ years)
Lift the cone in one hand and, in the other, stack as many balls of ice cream as possible on the cone without them falling.
ICE-CREAM PARTY MODE (advanced, 7+ years)
The game starts with the cone in the cone-holder and players take turns.
The youngest player picks up the cone in one hand; using the other hand, he or she picks a ball and places it on the cone. Put the cone, with the ice-cream ball, back in the cone-holder. The player to the right then goes, attempting the same: lift the cone, place a second ball of ice-cream and then return the cone with the two balls to the cone-holder.
As the game progresses, the number of flavours on the cone increases and it becomes harder to keep them from falling.
If an ice-cream ball falls before the cone is returned to the holder, that player is eliminated.
