Small box games get a lot of love in my household - when it’s just the husband and I playing, 9 times out of 10 we’ll reach for a small box game. Most of our small box games are quicker and lighter, perfect for midweek plays while dinner is in the oven! These are some of our faves, in no particular order:
1. Love Letter: great deduction game for 2-4 players, good for travel too!
2. Hive: cracking abstract, perfect for camping, one of my favourites EVER.
3. Nature Fluxx: lots of random fun, with ever changing rules.
4. Cat Lady: lighthearted filler, super cute theme and art.
5. Fungi: another one of my faves, very gentle set collection game, super zen.
6. Patchwork: brilliant puzzle game, easy to learn, tough to master!
7. Tiny Epic Quest: lots of game in a tiny (haha) box and amazing components.
8. Jaipur: fun and colourful set collection/hand management game. Always has my husband accusing me of being lucky!
9. Port Royal: so much push-your-luck goodness.
10. Skull: simple bluffing game for 3-6 players - great for end of night.
11. Deep Sea Adventure: tight and elegant gameplay - make your decisions at just the right time!
Yassssss the long-awaited board gaming weekend is here! We are taking off early tomorrow on a hopefully nice drive north of Seattle, then coming through the beautiful Deception Pass down to Whidbey Island, where we have rented an Airbnb. Then we take the Mukilteo ferry back. This is what I've got packed. @highongames and @joaquinlowe have their own stashes. @oh_____hey is going to learn SO. MANY. GAMES tomorrow 😅
What would you bring on a board game weekend? ...
Deep Sea Adventure seems to bring out 3 types of people. Those who play things cautiously, those that play like they couldn’t possibly lose and those that play just to screw other people over hahaha
It really is a great push your luck game that you can take pretty much anywhere! ...
DEEP SEA ADVENTURE
DEEP SEA ADVENTURE is a small box push your luck game in which all players are poor explorers in search of quick riches through sunken treaure. Yet due to financial trouble, all players are forced to rent a single rented submarine and one shared oxygen tank on their trip to the bottom of the ocean.
Each turn, divers roll their dice and move the amount of spaces shown. When landing on a treasure spot, they can pick it up for their total score, yet for each treasure you hold your die results are reduced by one AND for each treasure you have at the start of your turn, the shared oxygentank decreases by one as well. This makes it harder to go deeper for the better loot, and just as hard to make it back to the sub with your new found riches in time as you and your fellow divers use more oxygen the greedier you all get.
Players may drop treasure in piles that they grabbed from the bottom of the ocean as they return to the sub making it easier to get next round, yet your opponents may steal your placed piles as well, so you better be feeling pretty lucky with planning your every move.
DEEP SEA ADVENTURES is proof not all great games need a big box. I've literally lost this game once because it's so tiny, and can fit in your back pocket making it an excellent travel game or something you can carry around and bust out at any social gathering. Light of rules, an accessible theme, cute yet quality components. and a little luck make this game an excellent little party game that can be played with just about anyone, regardless of experience they have with gaming.
В перерывах между играми Лэнга, добираясь до дна чайной кружки, мы заодно отправились на дно океана в корыстных, разумеется целях.
Предельное погружение от @lavkagames прекрасный быстрый филлер на компанию до 6 дайверов. Схватил сокровище, выплыл с сокровищем, убедился что у тебя оно ценнее чем у остальных - радуешься. Предельно просто и тем не менее азартно и весело. Будем погружаться ещё.
In the breaks between the games of Lang, getting to the bottom of the tea mug, we also went to the bottom of the ocean for selfish purposes.
#deepseaadventure wonderful fast filler for a company of up to 6 divers. Grabbe the treasure, swam with the treasure, making sure that you have it more valuable than the rest - you rejoice. Extremely simple and yet reckless and fun. We will dive yet.

Every man for himself 😭
We all know that by cooperating, we could get much more resources in total 😇
But then there is the incentive to deviate from that plan, because one person could get more for a short term period 😈
This DEEP SEA ADVENTURE board game pretty much depicts that situation, a very basic game theory 😎
