Deep Blue, will you be the most adventurous diver? Wed, 03 July 2019 16:21
Days of Wonder announced the upcoming release of Deep Blue , a new challenging 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!

Technical diving at depths over 100+m.

There had better be a damned good reason to go to those depths. They require plenty of money and a lot of planning- you don't just jump in and say "I'll think I'll drop down to 100 meters today."

The main thing people really go to those depths to see are wrecks- but there are a lot of specific reasons people might be interested in a particular wreck. They tend to be pristine because a ton of divers haven't been all over them. Some are historically significant and they want to share in that history. Some people just like to know that they are someplace that few people on Earth have ever been. For some it's just a general sense of adventure and for others it's a macho thing.

In many ways deep diving is a lot like space exploration. People understand when you say you want to go to space, but they seem to be a lot less understanding when you say you want to dive down 300 feet underwater. Both are completely inhospitable environments to humans. Both require a lot of time, money, and training to explore safely. Both are filled with amazing sights and experiences. Space is out of reach for most people, but deep diving really isn't. You simply have to decide for yourself whether those experiences are worth the risks.

For deep divers the answer is yes.

I understand the risks and I accept them. Life is short and unpredictable- I could die tomorrow crossing the street. If I die on a dive that would suck- but at least I died doing something I truly love.
