On July 3rd, Days of Wonder announced the upcoming release of Deep Blue, a family-weight push-your-luck and engine building game designed by
Asger Harding Granerud & Daniel Skjold Pedersen (co-designers of 13 Days: The Cuban Missile Crisis, Copenhagen, and A Tale of Pirates).
Having acquired a fabled map pointing the right way to the most ancient, legendary, and extravagant underwater wrecks, players in Deep Blue will take risks and compete to become the most wealthy diver. They will do so by collecting the right crew of divers, sailors, and archaeologists, racing to the best wreck sites, and searching the seas to discover new wrecks.
According to the game designers, “Deep Blue is one of those games that took 6 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.”
Days of Wonder expects Deep Blue to be available in Europe and North America in October. To find more information about the game, including the full rule book, visit the game’s official site here.
