Get Bit! Squid Die Expansion
This expansion was released in connection with Mayday Games' 2012 Kickstarter campaign for their Deluxe version of Get Bit!.
You will use the special Squid die for this expansion. At the start of every turn, before cards are chosen, have the swimmer in front roll the die. Leave the die up for everyone to see for the entire round.
Consult the die:
• Calm Seas (Even number of 2,4 or 6 comes up): Oh how nice... no change at all! You are "even" with the sea. The round is played as normal.
• Tidal Wave (Odd number 3 or 5 comes up): What the heck happened? You are "at Odds" with the sea! After selecting cards and running the Get Bit! phase as usual, with the shark biting the swimmer in the back, and the swimmer jumping to the front, the shark then is also moved to the front, reversing the order of the entire line, so the front becomes the back and vice versa.
• Ink Cloud (Squid image comes up): It's chaos I tell you! Chaos! For this round, all cards played are randomly chosen, and the Get Bit! phase is skipped.
Sharkspansion Note: The shark also plays a random card, but it has no effect. The Ink Cloud does not cause the shark to “miss.”
(Squid Die: 6 sides, Numbers 2-6 with one side Ink Cloud icon)
For Walk the Plank:
The die has 6 sides, with The Calm Sea (3 sides), Tidal Wave (2 sides), Kraken (Squid) on one side. It is rolled any time someone falls off the end. Calm Sea nothing happens, Tidal Wave pushes all pirates that are furthest off the plank back toward the ship and Squid would mean anyone on the very last plank is pulled off into the sea by the monster!
