Sunken treasure. Why just go scuba diving in the tropical waters when you can come back richer than you ever imagined? But it's not an easy task, and you are always fighting against the amount of air you've got left. Will you push ahead of the competition and come out with the most loot? That's what you'll be trying to do in Deep Blue, a new board game coming from Days of Wonder.
From the website:
Buying this fabled map was a stroke of genius. The most ancient, legendary, and extravagant underwater wrecks are waiting for divers. Diving suits and oxygen tanks are aboard, and the ship is ready to weigh anchor. There is no time to lose! The increased hustle and bustle of the harbor, with ship captains attempting to hire the best divers and historians, can only mean one thing: other captains found the same map, and the biggest treasure hunt of all time is about to begin!
