A New Jaws Board Game Lets You Recreate Famous Scenes from the Hit Movie

Ever wished you were a shark trying to eat three of your closest friends? Now you can thanks to an upcoming Jaws board game that pits the iconic great white shark against three unsuspecting people in the water.

Made by Ravensburger, the officially-licensed board game of the terrifying 1975 movie hit recreates two of the finest scenes from the iconic film.

The first scene player get to reenact when the shark was terrorizing swimmers along Amity Island and the second when the same three players are attacked while hunting the beast on a small boat.

How to play?

The Jaws board game lets one player play the role of the killer shark, while the rest of the participants take on the roles of Brody, Hooper, and Quint, playing out the game in two memorable phases from the film.

In the first phase, the shark terrorizes swimmers along Amity Island while avoiding staying out of sight of the three protagonists, who are tasked with pinpointing the animal’s location by closely watching what’s happening in the water.

In the second phase, the three human players board the Orca to hunt for the shark.

The shark stages wild attacks on the boat, in hopes of sinking it, leaving the three protagonists completely vulnerable.

The battle is, pretty straightforward – if the humans kill the shark, they win; if the shark destroys the boat, it wins.

Various character cards offer the players different abilities throughout the fight, while event cards create game actions that define the two parties’ interaction.

Each game is expected to last around an hour, so this can make for a pretty drawn-out showdown of man versus beast.

Designed by Prospero Hall, the Jaws board game is expected to be released in June, and will be priced at £30.
