With Fraser playing, do you really need to ask? ;) I bet his parrot fish is more like a "shark"...
You have got to be kidding! My current record is 2 out of 8 on SBW.

When your parrot fish eats as the first action of the turn, it must eat a minimum of 4 tiles.
All tiles in the selected group are eaten and any tiles over the required 4 are placed into your 'parrotfish box' and are scored. The value of the tiles scored is dependant on the domination setup.
I think you get 1 point extra for each tile for each domination it shows.

The game ends when one player eats all shrimp. After that each player gets a round to also consume their shrimp. However, during this last round the minimum required tiles is 5 and only tiles over 5 (not 4) are scored.
Get a grip!

Redturtle. I think it is the next step in the food cycle.

It figures - turtles are good at eating fish, specially shrimp.

Nice game. I thought it would take longer though, and only got to eat one shrimp. (but it was a big 'un!)

I stuffed up with my grey tiles. I was supposed to eat the white centre piece, but didn't realise I needed to move the shrimp onto the grey to do that. Ah well.

also I didn't realise you could only eat once a turn.

I did try to stop him fraser!

thanks for the game that was fun :lol:

definitely a speed run.
the tiles just seems to fall my way.

However, I am amazed that there are games that go 11 rounds....

Yes, I had initially been expecting it to go a little bit longer ;)
