2 - 6 Players
Made in the U.S.A.
Takes you for an adventure into the ecosystem that supports the big whales. Dive right into the Antarctic Ocean community with this unique marine food chain game. Included are a deck of seventy-seven cards with an introduction to the ocean food chain, as well as a glossary of
terms and instructions.
The content of the 77 playing cards is great. Each card has a decent black and white picture of the piece of the food chain represented by the card. Many of the cards have information about that piece of the food chain. For example, the Benthic Community Animals card states, "May include rock lobsters, clams, scallops, gastropods, sea urchins, brittle starts, etc. They live on the ocean floor near the continental shelf and around islands." Each card also lists the things eaten or utilized by its subject and what eats or destroys it. For example, the Albatross eats Fish, Krill, Squid and Zoo Plankton and is destroyed by DEATH, Detritus, and Decomposers (DDD card). There are many possible food chains in Krill. One of the longer food chains is Upwelling, Nutrients (Inorganic and Organic), Phytoplankton, Zooplankton, Krill, Fish, Squid, Crabeater Seals, Leopard Seals, Killer Whales, DDD. One of the shorter ones is Nutrients (Inorganic and Organic), Ice Algae, Ice Invertebrates, DDD.
