What if you decide to not pick anything up, all the players and keep diving and diving ... so the first turns no air gets lost and if you pick only one thing up you probably get back in time ...

Indeed! That's why it is press your luck! Survive and get something and hope the others don't make it back, or grab what you can and hope you turn back in time.

Okay, I get that and probably someone is tempted to get someting sooner but if all the players dive deep without taking anything and then everyone get only one treasure and go up then without taking anything else ... isn't it possible that everyone gets there in time?

Oh!! I understand what you are asking now. I've never done the math to find out what the ideal average depth would be for everyone to succeed. Of course, it is really up to the dice at that point. -m

Yes, but the treasures have different values (two of each value), even within the same tier, so if everyone makes it back with one treasure from the same tier, either two players are tied and ahead of everyone else or one player is winning. Remember, you don't looks at the value of the treasure when you pick it up, only at the end of the round.

Therefore, even in the case everyone "plays nice" until you get to the final tier, as people are getting closer to returning to the ship, there's an incentive to grab a second treasure, or even a third, the air starts running our faster, people stop moving due to holding too much and getting bad rolls (dice only have values 1-3, not 1-6), and more likely at least one player doesn't make it back.

That's true, if you get back you probably will snatch some low value treasures just to make it difficult for someone else

Really nice game!!!
