This is not a
Kickstarter.

Send us money and we will
ship your game immediately!

Since this isn’t a pre-order, we can’t predict the exact demand. This means we only have a limited number in stock for our initial print run.

So, if you want an early copy of the first edition game, order before it sells out.

How it Works

A 30 Second Tutorial

Team Play

Split up into teams of two.

Privately decide on a secret signal with your teammate, such as touching your nose or blinking a lot.

Players at Table

Sit across from each other and draw cards.

Try to get four of a kind.

Shadow

If you get four of a kind,
You have crabs.

Hand of Crabs

Try to communicate this to your partner using your Secret Signal.

Wink Wink
Hand of Crabs

If your partner sees your signal and yells
"you’ve got crabs," you GAIN a point.

Hand of Crabs

If an opponent sees your signal and yells
"you’ve got crabs," you LOSE a point.

Whichever team
catches the most crabs,
Wins.

That's it!

Unless,

you play with our

Imitation Crab Expansion.

It contains two wearable crab claws:

Imitation Crab Claws
Grabbing Cards with Imitation Crab Claws

And one powerful
expansion card

Imitation Crab Card

Whoever holds the card

Must wear the claws!

In other words,
the more of an advantage you give yourself in the game,
the more you start to resemble an actual crab.

That's Terrific!

Because we would also like for you to

not a kickstarter.

It's a finished,

ready-to-ship game.

So if you order now
we'll ship your game

immediately

However,

since this isn’t a pre-order
we can’t predict the exact demand.

This means we only have a limited number in stock.
So, if you want an early copy of the first edition game, order now.
After this initial batch, we will never print more first edition copies again.
