“Just when you thought it safe to go back in the water!”
Drumond Park brings us Shark Bite! A ferocious man eating shark who eats just about anything, hungrily waits for an unsuspecting hand; and then!!!
This shark is one hungry guy. Eagerly closing his jaws at random, making unsuspecting game players jump with fright.
Our latest game from the lovely Drumond Park people has certainly had us all on edge throughout the Summer holidays, almost making us never want to take a dip again!
And on a slightly more serious note, such as game play and rules! Well it’s simple. 2-4 players each take turns to roll a dice. The dice only has ones and two on it in the shape of fish. The player then has to use a small plastic fishing rod device to pull various plastic objects from the open sharks mouth.
It sounds far too easy to be scary doesn’t it? Well it is to an extent, especially considering the game needs no batteries! Well if a player pulls the wrong piece and old sharky realises what’s going on then he will quickly snap his jaws tightly shut, chomping away on anything remaining in his mouth, yes that includes fingers, hands, even noses if your too close. It’s best to hold the rod at arms length at all times and you just never know when the sharks mouth will go.
Unfortunately for the player who gets caught out, they have to put back all their previously caught objects and start from zero. This is what keeps the game going for longer as there are only 12 pieces to be hooked out.
The winner is the player with the most pieces once all the pieces have been fished out.
This is a combination of one of those old retro magnetic fish catching games combined with the old 80s spooky game of “I Vant to bite your finger” bought into the 21st century.
It makes us feel on edge when our turn is near, almost wishing the player before us gets caught by old sharky so that we have a better chance of not being. Then slowly hooking our piece hoping not to get those jaws near our fingers?
Who would of thought a fishing game could be this fun.
