Mark had brought the new edition of Shark along at my request, so when the table split up into two games, it was Mark, Jim, Philip and me for Shark. Mark explained the game, which is like Acquire (shares of stock) but different from Acquire (no mergers -- the smaller company is obliterated rather than absorbed), and commented that he felt his mistake in his previous playing had been not selling out his shares of companies in time, and we jumped into it. It was a pretty interesting game! Although you could see how somebody could get seriously hurt by a "shark" company growing to abut a smaller company and thus knock it off the board, that actually never happened in our game without enough warning for the players holding the stock in the smaller company to sell out before the damage was done. (With a six-player game, this danger would be greater.) So we all played fairly conservative strategies, taking so few chances that we actually ran the bank out of money, and in the end I had the best total, $664,000 to Philip's $618,000. It was a good game, one I won't mind playing again, though at a solid hour and a half it did run longer than anticipated.
