Wasn't sure about this at first. But my kids (17 & 14) ask to play it all the time. Quick to learn and fun to play!

We love this game! The games aren’t too long and the rules are simple enough for my 6 year old to understand. One of our favorites that we gravitate towards regularly!

Fun Game, Bad for Color Blindness

Our family loves this game, we usually play the deck with four players. However, it is not color blind friendly and it is very hard for my dad to play this game with us unfortunately. I wish they would come out with another deck with friendlier colors, or bigger icons so that he can play easier.

The game is fun to play and it moves quickly. Unfortunately the card stock is incredibly cheap. I am concerned about the longevity of the game. I suspect they were trying to save some money by using lighter weight card stock. I'd rather have paid a couple more bucks for higher quality cards.

My family loved it. My extended family too! I explained this game in 2min to all of them, and we had a great time. Some of them don't even play boardgames and really enjoyed it... will buy more as gifts :)

We really like playing this game. It's fun and simple. Get it when it goes on sale or if you have a discount. $20 is bit pricey but $15 and under for this game is good.

This is great for our family. Easy enough for our young kids and grandparents to play. The colors are vibrant. Quick game play. We have to keep playing till our youngest wins at least once which usually happens within a few games. This has become the go to game for our family.

This game is adorable and I love that it comes with an educational booklet on the mantis shrimp, which I had never even heard of! The game is a quick one, but super fun for competitive folks like myself.

The best shrimp game

I do like this game but I am very into the illustrations and overall just love mantis shrimp. In comparison to exploding kittens it is slower and will not hold the attention as much. But it is a must have to add to the card collection.

Quick, but awesome game! Your family will love it!

Our family loved this game! It’s simple, quick game that was really fun. The rules were easy to figure out and we loved the strategy involved in deciding whether to try to score or to steal from another player. Mantis will definitely be added to our regular rotation.

We play UNO all the time in our house, so having another card game that my younger kids can join in on makes it a huge plus for our family of 6. Also love the shorter game time!
