When I took the job as Sheriff on this small island it was to escape from life in the big city and raise my kids in a place that offered all the beauty and peace that the tourist brochures promote, and at first that was exactly how it was. Of course, I had heard the story of the great shark attacks that occurred in the past that gave the island the nickname of "Shark Island" in the press. But that was a long time ago and there had not been anything beyond a stranded whale on the beach in the last 15 years...until now. Today, Harlan, one of the old-school fishermen, came into my office and said he found the deserted boat of some divers about a mile out to sea. “You got a demon-fish feeding off this island!” he exclaimed, and I feared in my heart he was right. The peaceful island I moved to was gone, and Shark Island had returned!
Shark Island is a thrilling, semi-cooperative, press-your-luck board game that pits players, as Shark Hunters, against a monstrous Great White Shark terrorizing a coastal island.
The Hunter Players must work together to maximize their skills to search the surrounding waters, locating then flushing out the Shark before it can bring more terror to the island - or quickly respond after it attacks to do as much damage to the creature as they can.
When the Shark is found, the Hunters engage in a rapid form of combat, intent on killing it or driving it out to sea. The Shark Player will need to outsmart the Hunters and terrorize the island to accumulate enough terror to win the game.
