In Sharks with Lasers, you are a special agent trainee trying to pass an extremely dangerous field exam in order to claim your rightful place in the Mysterious Intelligence Agency (MIA). In this field exam, you are dropped into the fearsome depths of cold, dark waters and your goal is to reach a nearby island… alive. To obstruct any special agent trainee foolish enough to try and pass the exam an army of sharks equipped with lasers has been unleashed in the waters. You and your comrades are all in for a hell of a swim, as you dash for the island and your safety. Are you skilful enough to avoid getting blasted or worse, shredded by one of the fishy monstrosities? Fortunately, you brought along something to help you achieve your ridiculous mission: N’s little science project, a shark-with-laser-dazer. N’s device is capable of controlling the utterly dangerous sharks with lasers and it even comes with a built-in laser shield. That N, isn’t such a nerd after all.
Sharks with lasers is a fast paced boardgame, where players secretly play movement cards to move their agent. In addition, they jointly control the sharks, by secretly playing movement cards on the sharks. The game is played in rounds of which each consists of playing cards and subsequently resolving agent and shark movement. The first player who reaches the island alive, passes the special agent field exam, wins the game and becomes part of the special agent elite of the MIA.
