The Game of Jaws is a 1975 game by Ideal. The game is based on the blockbuster of the same name. Today, the game is rare and is a valuable collector's item. Jaws features a plastic great white shark, as well as 13 junk pieces. The junks pieces are things like tires, human skulls, etc. The game was also released as "Sharky's Diner" many years later.

Gameplay[edit]

The players put all the junk pieces in the shark's mouth. The weight of the pieces keeps the mouth open. Using a gaff hook, each player then attempts to remove a junk piece from the shark's opened mouth. The first player to successfully remove four junk pieces wins. However, if a player takes a wrong move, the shark's mouth will snap shut. If only two players are playing, the final player to successfully remove five junk pieces wins.
