Pardon my language, but can a native English speaker explain to me the joke in 'a *sub-zero* game' in the text on the cover?

Does it have a second meaning besides the literal 'under the freezing point'?

It could be any of a variety of slang expressions... perhaps it is intentionally ambiguous on the box cover to sound "cool" and "mysterious" or something.

They may be trying to enhance the arctic theme. Although the hexes represent ice floes, the abstract game doesn't conjure the feel of it. Great game regardless of theme though!

I think they are trying to say it's really cool.

That does seem more likely than another interpretation, that it will really leave you cold.
