Okay, let's start the meeting. My name is Ken, and I'm a Tichu addict.

Best game ever, of the stock type. It's even better than Acquire. There is said it and I'm not even the least bit sorry, because it's true.

Shark (the Ravensburger 1st edition) is excellent. One of the few games that has survived with us for decades - and its still regularly played. Its good with 3 players.. but absolutely deadly with 4 players as the risks get bigger and bigger.

Dont particularly like the new version with the central section, it seems to force the gameplay too much, get the old version if you can, probably the best stock trading game for 4 players around!

An excellent game -- Recommended. If you like Acquire, you will probably like this.
Plays nicely with 2 players or 6 players. (Haven't tried the intermediates, but have no reason to think that it won't be as good).

We are still having fun over and over with Shark, a rock-solid speculation contest in which the "game arc" can be very different from playing to playing. (A few weeks ago we had a game end by every piece of stock being sold, something we had previously thought would never happen!) If you're going to play the game more than once, we definitely recommend the black buildings (a variant described in the rulebook) AND the designer's rule of 7 which was part of the rulebook in 1990 but goes unmentioned in the new Rio Grande edition.

Biased in favour of the first player, but we love it anyway.
First Ravensburger edition was best - the Ft edition doesn't have enough money.

Similar to Acquire, but with a mean streak. This game is most fun when you play ruthlessly!

It might look a little janky, but it's a bunch of fun to play. Like a more vicious, less mathy Acquire. Kind of stupid with 2, though.

Shark is just one of those games I always love to play. There are not many share dealing games that work well - generally they are heavily luck based and although there is an element of luck in Shark I think its minimal compared to others in this genre. The skill in this game is playing with the share purchases, on your turn you can buy a maximum of 5 shares, you can buy before and/or after your die roll (the die roll will probably affect the price of some shares), however at some point the single shares run out and you are left buying in sets of 5 so it is more difficult to spread your portfolio. Your die roll is the luck element of the game, but you do have influence on how its used, strengthening a share or putting it in jeopardy of crashing. Highly reccomended - as an aside I prefer the older version to the newer one.

This is the earlier Ravensburger version.
