Days of Wonder have announced the upcoming release of Deep Blue, a challenging new push-your-luck game by Asger Harding Granerud & Daniel Skjold Pedersen.
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!
Deep Blue is a push-your-luck and engine-building game for the whole family in which players dive in search of riches, or can join other players’ expeditions and share in the benefits. They will have to collect the right crew of divers, sailors and archeologists, race to wreck sites to claim the best spots from which to dive, and scout the seas to discover new wrecks. Players will have to take risks if they want to be the wealthiest diver!
“Deep Blue is one of those games that took six years, on and off, to get just right. It is a passion project and a game we are immensely proud of. And we are very happy to announce this as our first partnership with Days of Wonder, one of our grail publishers,” say the designers of the game.
Deep Blue is a standalone game. It includes 1 board, 10 plastic boats, 50 crew member cards, 5 plastic treasure chests, 5 player boards, 1 Dive Site Board, 120 Victory Point tokens, 15 Wreck tiles, 1 Diving Bell pawn, 31 plastic gems, 1 cloth bag, 6 starter bonus tokens, 7 Captain’s Log scenario cards, and 1 Rules booklet. The game is expected to be available in October in Europe and in North America.
