Shrimp Cocktail is a fun card game in which you try to match characteristics of various shrimp. When you find a match (either in color, quantity, size or hat), you squeeze the included squeaky starfish and announce the match. The winner is the person who gets the most cards by calling out matches fastest. This is a great game to work on matching skills and attention (working under pressure while attending to details). The game can be modified for younger players, but it is most appropriate for children 7 years and older. It is definitely a game that the whole family can enjoy.
