Review: My son, which is 7 years old, loves this game. We played the day I received them in the mail.
The instructions were a little unclear but we understood the main goal of the game and what the different cards could do. My husband, son, and myself played Atomic Sharks at least three times the first night. The object of the game is to be the “last player standing” by not being blown up by an Atomic Shark.

Although we enjoyed the game, it is exactly like Exploding Kittens which is an extremely popular card game. I am a little confused by this and wonder which company thought of the idea first. Before receiving Atomic Sharks I had never even heard of the Exploding Kittens card game. I do like the name Atomic Sharks compared to Exploding Kittens though.

Atomic Sharks is a fun card game and we really enjoyed it. I wouldn’t expect a child younger than 7 years old to be able to understand the object of the game or how to play. The description does say it is recommended for ages 7 and up. However, this isn’t really an adult game either. My husband and I wouldn’t sit down to play it unless our son asked to play with us.
