The most productive fishing waters in the world await—but so do some of the most dangerous storms!

Race against your opponents and the weather to bring home the richest catch. Success requires resource management, strategic movement, and bold risk-taking.

This game of strategy and fortune plays in about an hour.

In Swordfish, you must challenge not only the other players, but the forces of nature as well!

Set in the Atlantic Ocean, not far from the North American coast, lies the "Flemish Cap"—a cluster of shallow underwater plateaus where the cold Labrador Current mixes with the warm waters of the Gulf Stream to create one of the best fishing areas in the world.

Before you is an entire season: You must rent fishing boats, hire capable captains and crews, and set course into the cold Atlantic waters in search of your fortune. You must locate the most productive fisheries and reel in the largest and most valuable swordfish, then bring them back to port to fetch the highest price!

Do you dare to face the challenge of the Flemish Cap? Only the bravest and most capable of fishermen can hope to cross these waters and gather the largest and most profitable swordfish. But one must be careful: the "perfect storm" may be waiting for YOU!

Swordfish is a game of strategy and luck that plays in 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
