Rules to Enhance Your Deep Blue Experience

Deep Blue is an exciting game that offers endless possibilities and hours of fun. However, to truly master the game and elevate your gameplay, it’s important to understand and follow a few additional rules. These rules will not only enhance your gameplay but also encourage strategic thinking and decision making. So, if you’re looking to take your Deep Blue skills to the next level, read on!

1. Timing is Everything

When it comes to Deep Blue, timing plays a crucial role. Understanding when to make your moves and when to wait is key to securing victory. Remember that every decision you make can impact the outcome of the game, so take your time and consider your options carefully.

2. Plan Ahead

Deep Blue is a game of anticipation and strategic planning. To outmaneuver your opponents, you need to think several moves ahead. Consider the possible outcomes of each move and devise a plan that aligns with your overall strategy. By planning ahead, you can stay one step ahead of your competitors.

3. Adapt to Change

Deep Blue is an ever-evolving game, and adaptability is key to success. As the game progresses, new challenges and opportunities will arise. Be prepared to adjust your strategy accordingly and seize any advantage you can find. Stay flexible and open-minded, and you’ll be well-equipped to navigate the unpredictable waters of Deep Blue.

4. Learn from Your Mistakes

Mistakes are a natural part of any game, including Deep Blue. Instead of dwelling on your errors, use them as learning opportunities. Analyze your mistakes, identify where you went wrong, and adjust your approach for future games. Every setback is a chance to grow and improve, so embrace the learning process.

5. Embrace the Thrill

Deep Blue is all about adventure and excitement. Don’t be afraid to take risks and try new strategies. The thrill of the game lies in exploring uncharted territories and challenging the status quo. So, embrace the unknown, trust your instincts, and dive into the captivating world of Deep Blue.

By following these additional rules, you can take your Deep Blue experience to new heights. So, let the games begin, and may the best player win!

If you’re the lucky owner of the Boat in this particular area, you’ll score 3 Victory Points instead of just 1 for each silver Gem you find on this Tile, as long as you stayed in the dive until the end.



If you happen to own the Boat in this particular location, you will earn 5 Victory Points (instead of the usual 2 VP) for each gold Gem that you uncover on this Tile. And there’s a catch – in order to earn these bonus points, you must have stayed in the dive until the very end, without leaving prematurely.



Hey there! If you’ve got the Boat on this special spot, you’ll score a whopping 10 VP (instead of just 4 VP) for every red Gem you pull up from this Tile. And for the big points, you’ve got to stay in the dive all the way until the end. Pretty cool, huh?

Hey there! So, if you happen to be the owner of the Boat in this specific spot, I have some good news for you! You get a special advantage: a free protection against a blue Gem. How cool is that?

Now, here’s how it works: after you use this protection, you can move your Boat to the empty space right in the middle of the Tile. So not only do you get the benefit of avoiding any harm from a blue Gem, but you also get to sail your Boat to a more secure spot. It’s like a double win!

So, remember, if you’re the lucky Boat owner in this spot, take advantage of this awesome perk. Enjoy your protection and sail on to safer waters. Happy adventuring!

Hey there! Do you own a Boat on this spot? If so, I’ve got a great deal for you! You’ll get one free protection against a black Gem. That’s right, you heard me! No need to worry about those pesky black Gems anymore. And that’s not all – once you use your protection, your Boat will be moved to the blank space in the center of the Tile. How cool is that?



If you have a Boat in that position, you get one protection against a blue Gem OR a black Gem at no cost. Once you use that protection, move your Boat to the empty space in the middle of the Tile.

Just a reminder: the special rules I’m about to tell you only apply to the 4 Sunken City Wreck Tiles.

Uh-oh, we’re in trouble!

“It’s so hard to see down here…”.

Here’s what you need to do: grab 2 Gems at a time from the bag, alright?

Nothing but the best!

“I’ve never heard such crazy stories about a sunken city. But the experts we hired seem to know their stuff…”.

Guess what? Every card you play to get VP will give you an extra 4 points!

Treasure everywhere!

“Even from up above, we can see shiny things in the water. Everywhere! And sometimes we even see mysterious creatures swimming around…”.

As soon as a Sunken City Tile is revealed, I quickly draw and place one Gem from the bag on this Tile AND each connected Tile, revealed or not. Each Tile can only hold one Gem, so next time I reveal a Sunken City Tile, I put Gems only on Tiles that do not already have one.

Whenever I start a dive on a Tile with a Gem on it, I move that Gem to the Dive Site Board and count it as if it was the first Gem pulled out of the bag. Once I finish with the Tile, the Gem goes back in the bag along with all the other Gems from the dive.

Bounty Wrecks

“Just got a message from our benefactor. She wants us to bring everything we find to the surface. From golden statues to chamber pots, we don’t leave anything behind..”.

If I’m not forced to resurface, I score 2 points for every 5 gems I pull from the bag at the end of the dive.

Oh no, there’s a storm coming!

“Look, dark clouds and lightning are approaching from the north. We have to act quickly and leave this place. If we don’t hurry, people will find our shipwreck and get rich.”

When I find a Sunken City Tile, I have to start diving right away. It doesn’t cost me anything to do so. But here’s the twist – everyone else can rush in from two moves away instead of just one.

Watch out for Dangerous Reefs!

“These shallow waters are so dangerous. It took us hours just to get here without damaging the ship’s hull.”

No one is allowed to rush into dives on Sunken City Tiles. We have to be extra careful in these treacherous areas.

Let’s explore the Ruins of Plenty!

“There are antiques, treasures, and gems everywhere! We’re definitely going to need a bigger boat for all our amazing finds.”
