Build a thriving ecosystem and compete to survive in the deep ocean!
Along cracks in the ocean floor, plumes of superheated water provide a rare opportunity for life in the freezing abyss. Seize your chance to grow, build your resources, and prey on nearby systems with a host of strange and deadly predators.
In Deep Vents, players combine tiles with special powers to create unique hydrothermal ecosystems with hundreds of possible combinations. With many paths to victory, players can focus on attacking opponents, defending their own systems, or simply building an unstoppable growth machine! Includes dozens of tiles featuring art by Ryan Laukat, 80 translucent archaea cubes, 15 resin shell tokens, and more.
How to Play
Gain archea, the basic food source your ecosystem depends on.
Send your predators to attack nearby systems, destroying portions of their archaea.
Protect your own archaea using shells that block invading predators, reducing their damage.
Place new hex tiles carefully to take full advantage of adjacency bonuses and reach your true potential.
