Soak up the fun down at Mermaid Beach! Swim along with Swirly Shirley, Betsy Bubbles, Rip Rider, and a colorful cast of undersea characters as you try to collect the most seashell cards. Watch out for sneaky waves and icky seaweed along the way. Most of all - don’t get caught holding the sea monster at the end of the game!
They say that the ocean is the inspiration for countless works of great art. Such is the case with Mermaid Beach, a game that came about while 8-year-old Emily Ehlers spent an entire year living aboard a sailboat and traveling the world by sea. Emily, along with help from her brothers, Jake and Drew, came up this wildly imaginative card game that has all elements of a great Gamewright game: fantastic art, whimsical characters, and a set of rules that are easy to learn, yet engaging enough to lure you back for more. No word whether Emily visited a real Mermaid Beach during her trip, but if so, we hopes she returns there someday to teach the mermaids her game! Released 2012.
