Plunge into a fast-paced undersea world where life is survival of the quickest. Identify the lowest creature in the food chain then slap it before the other players scarf it down. Big fish chomp little fish and everyone chomps plankton. Watch out for the ink-squirting octopus and if you spot an electric eel, get ready for an all-out feeding frenzy! Collect all the cards and you're ruler of the deep blue sea.
Chomp! Is a great tool to help teach children about the food chain. Players learn about the hierarchy of ocean species through employing skills such as visual discrimination and sequencing. It also helps to sharpen reflexes and teaches quick thinking and analysis while playing a fast-moving game.

My eight year-old and I played this game for over an hour yesterday. It's fun. It does not take long to play. It teaches kids about the food chain. My whole family has enjoyed this game. I've noticed that you can't go wrong with a Gamewright game! I would definitely buy it to give as a gift.
I'm not sure that this game shouldn't be recommended for ages 4-7 or something like that. No reading is required, so the lower limit of 6 seems unnecessary, and it wears thin much above that.
Chomp is another attempt by Gamewright to liven up the game of War, but it doesn't work as well as Alien Hotshots. The innovation here is the 'feeding frenzy' that occurs when an electric eel is played and players race to slap it. While this does achieve the level playing-field it is presumably intended to effect, I'm not convinced of the value of 'sharpening reflexes' via slapping cards. Sorry. Slamwich seems like a preferable outlet for those urges anyway. And if you want to learn about the food chain, go to the science museum.
Unless you are going to always let the kid slap the eel first, this game is going to be interminable, and I can't recommend it for adults to play with kids. Depending on the ages, I'd recommend Slamwich or Alien Hotshots instead. Or both.
