Save your catch before he snaps
Jake and Grace were jumping up and down giddy when they saw Shark Bite from Drumond Park come out the box as they have seen it advertised on TV and had mentioned that they would like it for their birthday’s which are very soon!
Contents of the box:-
12 pieces of shark food (fish, lobster, crab)
1 fishing rod
1 sticker sheet
First what we needed to do was add the six stickers on the dice, then apply the two stickers for the sharks eyes.
How to play Shark Bite
To start playing Shark Bite we needed to fully open the sharks mouth and push the shark head down until it fulls clicks into the base. Then insert the 12 pieces of shark food into the 12 holes which are situated in the sharks mouth.
- Roll the dice, this determines how many pieces of shark food you need to catch out of the sharks mouth.
- Using your fishing rod, rescue either the fish, lobster or crab out of the shark’s jaws!
- Collect the most fish to win the game!
- But watch out… if the shark snaps his jaws you lose all of your fish!
- If there are still fish inside the shark’s mouth, reset the game by pushing the shark back down until it click into place and then put the lost shark food back inside to be caught again
- continue playing until there are no fish left inside the shark’s mouth.
- The player with the most fish at the end of the game is the winner.
I like how we are playing and you think you are about to win and all of a sudden the shark will bite meaning that your not winning anymore, as you lose all of your shark food and start from the beginning.
The player who has collected the most fish when the sharks mouth is empty is crowned the winner!
This game is so much fun and has brought plenty of giggles. Jake and Grace love this game, where as now Grace keeps hiding behind the chair asking me to take her turn so she doesn’t get bit!
As you hook and pull the shark food out of the mouth I feel Shark Bite needs something for you to hold onto as you pull and sometimes as we pull, the shark’s head would be moving from the table. So maybe if it had fins on the side you could push onto as you pull keeping it stationary on the table. This would suit both right and left handed people. I feel this would improve the game. The only place we could hold onto is the hinges or the teeth which in time I feel may well effect use of the game.
This game is very simple to understand and is suited for age 4+ and 2 to 4 players. This game does not require batteries which is a great bonus. I seem to be forever taking batteries out of Jake’s trains for us to use elsewhere!
After about 10 minutes of play, Jake was crowned the winner and asked straight away for the next game! I like that Shark Bite doesn’t take ages to set the next game up, all we need to do is pop the shark food back in the mouth and we are ready to play.
This is a fabulous game for all players and I would really recommend this game as is has been so much fun as a family of all ages to play
The game is available to purchase on Amazon and other good toy stockists
