Question:
Not clear on the rules in relation to the Shark vs Octopus cards. If a shark and an octopus are played against each other, who wins? I have read that the shark card is the strongest in the game and beats all, but I have also read that the Octopus would render any card, including the shark, useless. Any thoughts?

We play it that the octopus nullifies the attack, regardless if the other card is a shark.

Re:Shark vs Octi
We play the attack is nullified (Octopus wins).

Looking carefully at the Resolving Attack section of the rules. The shark is all powerful only if the other person has selected a fish card. This is the bullet at the top of the right column.

The third bullet in the same column says that the attack is nullified if one, or both, players select the Octopus.

For a shark-vs-octopus attack, the shark's power doesn't apply (no fish card played), so the octopus' escape power prevails and the attack in nullified. That's our understanding of the rules.
