In Crab Stack there's a one-star crab. One-star crabs can stack on one-star, two-star, and three-star crabs. Two-star crabs can stack on two-star and three-star crabs. Three-star crabs can only stack on three-star crabs.

To "stack" a crab, you land on it and it's trapped under the crab until the crab on top moves. For the wave rule, crabs must remain connected. We liked the game but it was confusing at first, so read the directions carefully. We would recommend this game because it's fun to come up with strategies to save your crabs. Also we like that you can win when just a turn ago you were losing.
