Fish Cards and Marbles - MLD Engraving LLC - Laser Engraving.
But instead of collecting and redeeming sets of colored cards like in many other family board games (ie. Ticket to Ride), players collect colored marbles. The marbles are then matched up with brewing potions to both generate points as well as use special abilities. Young kids will love collecting and matching colored marbles to their potions.
Set up the game by placing your five marbles on your colored starting spaces on the board. Instruct all players to do the same. Shuffle two decks of playing cards with Jokers and allow each player to draw one card. The highest card goes first and play continues clockwise. Reshuffle the decks and deal out five cards face down, one at a time, to each player in the game. Place the remaining cards.

This game is a blast to play with friends. I like to think of it as a grown up version of aggravation due to the game variations. It is easy to understand but there is more strategy involved if using playing cards. Your Marbles and cards will come in an old fashioned hand sewn draw string bag. This game would be a great addition to any home.
