Instructions are provided on additional selected squares of the grid, some of which may result in bonuses or rewards of larger catches of fish for the player stopping on the square, and some of which may result in a set-back or penalty for the player landing thereon. Groups or sets of chance cards are arranged on the printed boards and are drawn by players during movement of their playing pieces on the grid in accordance with certain of the squares on which the playing pieces come to rest, said chance cards providing random information or instructions for the players.
