Product Description

Join the food-chain frenzy of Fish Eat Fish. In a wave of challenges and bluffs, players compete for control of the sea. Play your cards right and watch your pile of fish get bigger. But just when you think you’re big fish, a bigger fish comes along. Gobble up the most fish and you win! For 2 to 5 players.

From the Manufacturer

In a wave of challenges and bluffs, players compete for control of the sea. Play your cards right and watch your stack of fish grow. But just when you think you're the big fish a bigger fish comes along. Gobble up the most fish and you win. Game contains game board, 55 cards, 35 stackable fish tokens, 1 starfish token. The goal of the game is for a player to catch as many fish pieces as possible. Stacks of 1 - 5 fish are moved around the board in search of prey. Adjacent stacks engage in combat. Cards are played, and the number on the card is added to the number of fish in a player's stack. Highest total wins the combat, and that player's stack is placed on top of the loser's. If a stack contains more than 5 fish, the extras are placed in the winner's pool of caught fish. Ties result in both stacks of fish being discarded. Cards may only be played once, so players must balance the need to win a combat with the need to hold on to high cards for future combats against growing stacks.

My family plays a lot of board games. We also usually like Out of the Box games. We have four children ages 7-15, 2 boys and 2 girls, so I think we have a diverse selection of opinions. This game really did not click with anyone. My seven year-old son was the only one who liked it at all. Generally speaking, it is pretty boring.

My seven year old loves this game. It's simple, it creates dramatic moments, and anyone can win.

The rules are very simple - you get a limited stack of cards and then move your cute little plastic fish to attack each other using those cards. The plastic fish are fun to play with, and stacking them on top of each other as they are eaten is a simple pleasure that kids love.

The real heart of the gameplay is guessing what the other player will do. Which kids are surprisingly adept at. Unfortunately, the other best strategy is counting cards, which my son isn't very interested in. But that's good, as it gives the adults at the table an edge. It's well balanced and has enough strategy to keep the adults interested but enough randomness to keep the kids in the game.

This game doesn't compare to Settlers or Dominion if you are a serious gamer. This game is fun if you have a family game night though. The mechanics of the game are very simple. There aren't a lot of rules to learn. There is, however, a decent amount of strategy to it. There is a little resource management, a little bit a reading another players personality, a little bit of card counting/memory skills, and a little bit of planning. Over all there are several aspects of the game that make it rather enjoyable and an easy game to introduce kids to some of the strategy types involved with other games. For adults it can be fun for a while but it has a limited replay value. You can probably play a couple dozen games with the same players before it starts boiling down to the same game every time.
