Product Description

MFG3301 Nautilus Adventure in the Deep Board Game by Mayfair Games

Within the dark cold depths of the sea lies a world that could have risen from the works of Jules Verne. Here beneath the silt and sand of the sea floor resides the resting place of an ancient civilization once the marvel of the world. Swallowed by the sea, it sank to the depths to be remembered in legend.

Now, groups of researchers have come together to build a fantastic underwater city, made from the many components sunk on the ocean floor.Their quest? to search for lost treasures, scientific sensations, and of course glory! But, most of all they seek the remains of the lost civilization. Each searcher follows his own passions, seeking his own goals and judging his own success.

Can you aggressively explore the depths of the ocean, while efficiently guiding the construction and development of the underwater city? You must balance both goals if you wish to win fame and glory in Nautilus!

Ages 12+
Players 2-4
Playing Time 60-120 minutes

From the Manufacturer

Within the dark cold depths of the sea lies a world that could have risen from the works of Jules Verne. Here beneath the silt and sand of the sea floor resides the resting place of an ancient civilization once the marvel of the world. Swallowed by the sea, it sank to the depths to be remembered in legend. Now, groups of researchers have come together to build a fantastic underwater city, made from the many components sunk on the ocean floor. Scientific stations are created to support the efforts of these brave heroes as they scour the bottom of the sea in ingenious mini-submarines. Their quest? To search for lost treasures, scientific sensations, and of course glory. But, most of all they seek the remains of the lost civilization. Each searcher follows his own passions, seeking his own goals and judging his own success. Can you aggressively explore the depths of the ocean, while efficiently guiding the construction and development of the underwater city? You must balance both goals if you wish to win fame and glory in Nautilus. Players try to recover as many underwater discoveries as possible, and multiplying the value of these discoveries through the construction and activation of the underwater modules that will form the base for an underwater city. Additional victory points are earned by uncovering the ruins of Atlantis and conserving your resources. This family strategy board game is for 2-4 players, ages 12 and up. It takes about 1-2 hours to play.

Not fair to give this game a poor review. It was very fun and my kids and wife enjoyed it very much. It's not boring at all. Rules take a bit to understand but once you got it down you have no problem running through it and playing a quick game. Mayfair games is one my favorite game manufacturing companies and one the last independent game companies that Hasbro doesn't own. Not to mention the game was developed by Wolfgang.
The Pros, If you like to search for treasure and resource management this the game for you. That's exactly what your doing in the game. You help build a underwater research colony with the other players and you send your submarines out to search for treasure, and the lost ruins of Atlantis. The game teaches finance management. Every player starts with a set amount of money that's all you have till you earn more its not so easy to earn more. Once the money runs out so does your expeditions in the sea with your subs. Not a lot confusion in how to play its pretty simple. My 13 year old and my 8 year old had no issues in playing the game.
The cons, I wish the game had more treasure types and dangerous encounters at random for the subs. I feel a game like this needs some danger in it. Sea creatures or disasters something would have livened it up a tad more. The rules did poorly on explaining how the researchers come into play at the start of the game. I corrected that problem with my years of experience in playing these types of games. If you own this game not sure on that rule here we go. Basically researchers come into play on the Habit Mods (YOU) place. Each mod can allow for 3 Researchers to be added to the colony. You can't bring your researchers on till you build and control Habit Mods. I played several different versions of the game decided this was the best method.

This huge, beautiful and elaborate game has you incrementally building an undersea base module by module, populating them with researchers, activating them (not exactly the same as populating), and then sending subs out to find treasure and critters down in the deep blue sea. After a mear 90 minutes of reading and re-reading the instructions, I figured out that this was what we were supposed to do. Hint for instruction writing geeks: first start with an overview and then launch into particulars. I could probably figure out the instructions for real SCUBA diving gear faster than how to play this game.

Kudos to the creativity and imagination that went into this game, but the complexity is such that it takes a lot of mental bandwidth just to keep all the rules in mind while playing. That sort of saps the fun batteries if you know what I mean. After playing this game, you may really need to come up for air! And, I think the victory points scoring mechanism is too complicated and just plain weird. That said, if you love the sea and you love hunting for treasure and critters, this may be a great way to waste an afternoon or two, and now that my son and I have learned the game we'll likely play it again.

I love scifi board games, and I love underwater adventure. This game is a nice mix of both.

Boring, overly complicated, over-long, and bland, there is little to recommend this game. Even the art is amateur and unexciting. Nautilus tries to be more than it is and ends up being much less, like a fancified little kids' game masquerading as one for adults. The 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea steampunk theme is pasted on and the game could just as easily have been set in deep space or on an Egyptian archaeological dig. The plastic miniatures are tiny but decently sculpted. The board is huge and takes up way too much table space. The money that comes with the game is "Monopoly"-style paper currency and the publisher is so cheap that the bills don't even have different art on the denominations, just the recycled image of the box cover. To add insult to injury, the brand new shrink-wrapped copy my friend bought was missing two researcher figures from two of the colors. I played it once and have no desire to ever waste my time playing it again, nor can I recommend it.

It was missing pieces and I had to return it, which was quite unfortunate...
