Jaws: The Board Game is on its way to Australian shores, and if the packaging is anything to go by, it's not for the faint-hearted! Aussies can pre-order now at Ozgameshop for $45.99 with delivery expected in September.
It's been over 40 years since Jaws claimed its place as the best shark film of all time, and while there's been loads of shark-y merch on offer throughout the years, but this Jaws-themed board game takes the cake as the ultimate movie memorabilia.
The first thing that makes this game a stand-out in a sea of so many other adventure games is that one player actually gets to play the shark. (And that player gets to hum the two-note Jaws theme for the entire duration if they so wish.) Other players make up the crew: Hooper, Brody and Quint.
The game itself is divided into two acts. In the first act, the crew have to protect the swimmers from old-mate Jaws, and try to track him down as he terrorises Amity Bay. In the second act, the game board is flipped over and the crew have to defend the Orca fishing boat as the shark attempts to destroy it.
What makes this game so utterly awesome is that it follows the narrative of the original film, and even includes images from the blockbuster on the event cards.
As above, you can pre-order at Ozgameshop (which is based in the UK), with cheap shipping of just $1.99.
We've also spotted this available for pre-order at Amazon Australia for $47.92 + International shipping.
