|Number of Players
Based on the original 1975 thriller movie!
In Jaws, one player takes on the role of the lethal shark off Amity Island, while the other 1-3 players take on the roles of Brody, Hooper and Quint to hunt the shark. Character and event cards set out player abilities and create game actions for humans and the shark. Gameplay is split into two acts — Amity Island and The Orca — to replicate the film's story.
In the Amity Island phase, the shark threatens swimmers and avoids capture. Other players try to pinpoint the shark's location and save swimmers from shark attacks.
In the Orca phase, played on the reverse side of the game board, Brody, Hooper and Quint are aboard the sinking ship engaging in a climactic fight against the shark, while using additional action and strategy cards to defend the Orca from shark attacks.
If humans kill the shark, they win the game; if the shark attack on the Orca is a success, the great white shark wins
