Mini-expansion for Survive.
There has long been a debate in the scientific community: which creature is mightier, the Whale or the Giant Squid?
At long last, you can decide! The whale and the Giant Squid are pitted against each other here in battle! But wait ... Will they attack each other? Or will they attack the poor Atlanteans and their boats? Let the battle begin!

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

This expansion adds the giant squid that can be spawned when the whale tile is flipped (player chooses between whale or squid). The squid can be activated instead of the whale when the whale is rolled on the creature or dive dice, depending on which one(s) you're playing with. The squid can also be killed by the harpoon tile that kills a whale.

The squid works by plucking a single pawn from either a boat with which the squid shares a space with, or from a land tile that the squid is adjacent to.

I feel the squid adds another dimension to the game as pawns in boats and on land are no longer safe. But the squid is nicely balanced in that it ignores swimmers and only plucks one unlucky victim at a time.

Also, when a squid or whale moves into a sea zone containing the other creature, it will eat it. A nice little touch.

I definitely recommend getting this mini expansion.

Same rating as the base game.

I give expansions the same rating as the main game if it neither adds or subtracts from the quality of play from the main game. If it adds more or takes away from play, I will add or subtract from that rating respectively.

After getting a perfect score in a recent 2-player game, I was worried that Survive: Escape from Atlantis! might not be durable at that player count, but I think these Giant Squid might just complexify it sufficiently!
