I always wanted this. Hungry hungry hippos is a poor substitute.
As someone who owned both, let me tell you you are mistaken.
Hippos is frantic and crazy, whereas Shark Attack is basically you just circling the board forever while a slow shark-ass moves along behind you. Also, it breaks really easily.
That shark sure loves to eat boats.

That's not how people acted when they played this game.
I'm sure this game got broken within the first game or two.

Just at that moment, Grandpa walked in and had a flashback to the war, when his ship was sunk and sharks swam in the atolls, his friends thrashing and god, the horror, the horror Grandpa why what's wrong ITS ALL COMING BACK TO MEEEEEEEEEE THE BLOOD WAS EVERYWHERE EVERYWHEEEEEEERE
Thanks, Milton Bradley.

i can just imagine the number of little kids that started screaming and crying as soon as their piece got eaten, prompting this board game to get put on the high shelf in the closet and never played again
I'll never wear a life jacket again.
And yet you play as fish? And the drama of the of the fish's struggle is utterly ignored in the animations? Man come on, Milton Bradley.
I had almost completely forgotten that I owned this game once upon a time. It was probably the worst board game possible. You'd think the concept would be fun, but not when the setup involves a 3 hour search through the house for wherever you dad hid the batteries. Then, when it got working you had to strain to hear conversation over its gears grinding together, like the sound of a thousand hornets stinging your youthfully-sensitive ears.

I find it amusing that something so terror inducing as a shark attack was made into a board game.
They should make a game about drowning in a car during a bridge collapse or one where you have to wait two weeks to get the results to an HIV test.
This song has been stuck in my head since that ad was on TV. I was surprised to learn I the words I remembered were fairly accurate.
