Hi all. I like the game but am confused by one thing. As I understand it, there are three rounds to a game, with divers leaving the sub at the start of each round. Many will never return. But, between rounds, does the sub surface and recharge the communal air tank to "full"?

I don't see that in the rules but have to assume that is what was intended. Otherwise, if the divers used all the air in round 1, there could be no round 2 or 3! Please confirm.

Thanks,

Jerald

Yep. New batch of air each round.

...And then does everyone return and start together in the submarine at the start of subsequent rounds?

OR, do those who remained in the water (and therefore dropped their collected ruin tokens) remain on their underwater space, moving downward again for their first turn of the new round?

The rules are unclear to me on this point...

I'm of the opinion that players do not return to the sub. In the "Round Conclusion" section their are two sections: 1)Players who made it back to the submarine and 2) Players who did not make it back to the submarine. Additionally, there are two conditions for determining the 1st player of the following round.

"The player farthest from the sub becomes the first player and the next round begins. If all the players made it back, the last player to make it back to the submarine becomes the 1st player."

If all the players are automatically returned to the the sub there would be no need for 2 sections/conditions.

Just to clarify for anyone who stumbles upon this thread (like I did); oxygen does replenish each round, and ALL divers return to sub each round regardless if they made it back or not.

Confirmed by the designer, Jun Sasaki, via W. Eric Martin, in this thread.
