All these years later, Jaws still endures as one of the all-time great horror movies, and Toy Fair (which doesn’t even actually kick off until tomorrow) has been pretty Jaws-heavy this year with Funko’s reveal of an entire upcoming wave of vinyl toys based on the 1975 classic. Announced by Gizmodo tonight, an official Jaws board game is also swimming our way!
As the site explains, the game is split up into two acts; when the shark has been located, Act 1 is complete, and you then flip over the game board to begin the hunt in Act 2.
And yes, one player controls the shark!
In Act 1: Amity Island, the shark prowls secretly through the waters around the island attacking swimmers and avoiding capture. Meanwhile the other players try to pinpoint the shark’s location while also saving the tourists.
Then in Act 2: The Orca, experience the climactic battle aboard the slowly sinking Orca. Brody, Hooper and Quint are well-armed… but they don’t know where the great white will strike next!
The 2-4 player game will be released by Ravensburger in June 2019, selling for $30.
