This was in the process of seeking interesting games, a random purchase that tagged along in the buy. When it was received it came across.. as a random game too. Just reading out the concept may grant a double take or bewildered blink at minimum. This is a game about swimming robots seeking to escape a pursuing shark. That isn't even a punchline to anything. You are a robot, a swimming robot, and you mean to avoid losing limbs to a shark. Okay so the presentation is simply daft and may turn a few heads, eyes, or brows and/or combinations thereof. Let's move on and get into the actual game.
The game at heart is a type of bluffing game. Everyone has a hand of cards numbered one to seven. Everyone has a robot somewhere in a line and at the rear end of the line is a shark. Everyone will play a card and the numbers are compared. The lowest number moves, then the next up, and eventually the highest number moves which means the high number will bring you forward while the low number may leave you at mercy of the shark. If you are at the end of the line after all the numbers go through, you lose a limb. Lose all limbs and you're out. There are two catches though while playing. If you happen to tie a number with someone, you both will stay where you are which can leave you in the back. As you continue to survive, you use up cards until they are all exhausted, and you will be allowed to recover your cards. If you lose a limb at any time, you recover all of your cards. Sometimes getting bit can be a sound trade off as a result.
A bluffing game with the odd theme but it is simple enough and short enough to merit it reasonably so. I'd even go so far to compare this to a more known bluffing game but then we'd be comparing dice to cards and that's besides the point.
