Now the cons: The instructions weren't that clear despite reading them over and over and I had to resort to watching a YouTube tutorial. Also the pieces don't always fit perfectly together and are hard to connect and disconnect at times. The game is probably to confusing for kids under eight as well. Despite this we absolutely love this game. I would recommend a tutorial before initial play and you'll be fine. :) It's a super fun family game.
The only complaint they had at all was that some of the puzzle pieces in the submarines don't fit together well. (A minor problem in such an extraordinary game!)
We highly recommend this board game!
The artwork is cartoonish steampunk fantasia, and I really like it. The submersibles each have slightly different designs with zany-looking pilots. The ocean card decks are designed to reflect the surface, middle, and floor of the ocean for their respective rounds. Animals on the cards include a whale wearing a top-hat and monocle, and very friendly-looking hammerhead shark. Also, there is a kraken. Too many eyes o' the kraken on your cards, and you might lose a few points.
You score after each of the three rounds, plus a final scoring of your coral and treasures. The largest chunk of points will come from the number of different animals you have in your row, so it pays to upgrade the aquarium part of your sub in round 1. You can also score points for propeller upgrades. The only thing I don't like is how the treasures are randomized at the end. I understand that it's a "press-your-luck" element that might reward you for upgrading your number of divers - or it might not. Some people will likely enjoy the anticipation. Also the rulebook didn't clarify whether you could collect more treasures than what is printed on the cards by having multiple divers in the same column. According to boardgamegeek, the answer is no. According to my experience, the answer is also no, because the player who did this before we searched for clarification scorched everyone else's score by double digits.
Ultimately, Oceanos is simpler to play and score than 7 Wonders, but still great fun. It's a good gateway game for people who might be intimidated by games with similar mechanics but greater complexity.
