Hi everybody!

I already asked around in board game shops in the Netherlands as well as in Germany, but with little result. So, I thought, I'd ask the experts! Dear BoardGameGeeks, do you know of any board game(s) featuring a mermaid?

Many thanks in advance,

Martine

The name is escaping now but there is a pirate themed card game where one of the suits is mermaids. It's kind of a press your luck game and IIRC the mermaids don't have a special power but they might have the highest points on the cards...

Dead Man's Draw

The only game that I can think of off the top of my head that features a mermaid (on the box, at least) is Mermaid Rain, but on looking up the name for that one a number of games with "mermaid" in the title popped up in teh search. I think a number of games have mermaids as playable races, like Small World.

Small World is the first one I thought of, but its mermen (Tritons in the game I think) aren't mermaids in the regular sense of the word I guess.

IIRC, one of the factions in Tiny Epic Kingdoms (expansion?) are merfolk, I think the mascot is female, but more like a fish person than a mermaid.

There's about a dozen games with "Little Mermaid" in the title:

Legends of Andor: Journey to the North has Mer-men (called Neraxes in the game, but clearly mer-men). There is also something called Mermaid Dust, but no cards depicting the said mermaids.

Depending on the age you want it for, I can recommend Mermaid Beach by Gamewright.

I am not sure if it is available in the Netherlands as I picked up my copy when visiting the US.

Magic: The Gathering has a number of cards with merfolk some of whom are female. (Probably not the best suggestion if you're looking to buy a game to play with Mermaids in).

Berserk: War of the Realms had some Mermaid cards. There was a bit of a controversy during the KS because it depicted the mermaid topless so they got some flak for that from some backers. So they covered up the mermaid and got flak for that from other backers. So they ended up sending both versions of that card (and a few others that had the same "problem")

I am surprised no one mentioned Abyss. It is a game about running a political campaign to get elected prime minister of an underwater nation. The lords whose favor you can buy are all masterfully drawn human-fish hybrids:
