Brendan (shark) 6, David 3, Nadine 3, Jon 0, Elijah 0

While waiting for numbers 6 and 7 we tried another game brought by Brendan. In this game, one player plays the shark and the other the four swimmers who have to reach shore. Played on a hexagonal board with impassable reefs and safe bouys, each round consists of the shark player secretly writing to which hex he intends to travel (up to four spaces), followed by the players moving up to two spaces each. If the shark ends up next to a player, the player loses a leg: three losses and you're out. If the shark lands on the player, the player is out immediately.

A few other fancy spaces allow you to roll dice for special events, like tides or scrape your leg, but that's about it. It is kind of a problematic game, because the shark goes after one person, leaving the other three basically safe to swim to shore, unless one of them has bad luck, which one did. So two of the players got to shore without having done anything. I was attacked and found it fun to try to second guess Brendan as to where he thought I was going, but one mistake and you're toast. Elijah had bad luck and got a leg cut off, which ended his game, after the other two were already on shore.
