I am looking for a gift for a friend who likes games and is also obsessed with octopus. Any ideas?

One or two of the Lord of the Rings LCG expansions involve octopus fights.

Animals: Octopuses

Doesn't seem to be a whole lot of options, but you might be able to find something in there.

I haven't played it, but Aquasphere seems to have Octopus meeples which invade little areas of an underwater lab.

Indeed!

(Poseidon's Kingdom also has mini resin octopi!)

Haven't played it so I don't know how much octopus content is actually in the game, but OctoDice has an adorable octopus box:

House Greyjoy from GOT uses them on their banner. You can get them as card sleeves to transform a card game into one with octopi. Or maybe a GOT game has them prominently portrayed?

Anything with Cthulu in (Elder Sign, Eldritch Horror, Arkham Horror, etc). Well, he sort of looks like an octopus...

PnP children's game Otto the Octopus

And a bunch more turn up in the games database when you type in 'octopus' to the search bar.

Does your friend also eat octopus? It's an ingredient in the game Wasabi!. (Of course, if she's fascinated instead by how intelligent the creatures are, the idea of eating them might not appeal.)

If you are not in a hurry, Kann is spot-on but is not yet available.

Try Oceanos...there's a kraken that's a little baby to start out and gets progressively bigger the deeper you go in the ocean.

    I have Night of the Grand Octopus and it's good, simple, light fun. Plenty of noise when you play.
