Hi folks,

grabbed this game last Saturday and read the rules. It is written, that players are not allowed to look at their collected treasures before they are back in the sub.

My question is:
"Do I have to show what I got each round to the others? In other words, do I have to flip the treasure tokens at the end of the round or may I keep that information hidden from others?"

Thanks for your answers.

Dark.

Yes.

Round Conclusion
At the end of a dive, perform the following clean up actions:
• Players who made it back to the Submarine turn over their
Undersea Treasure Chips and reveal their values. They
keep these Chips for scoring at the end of the game.

I think that by not looking at the treasure token values until the end of the game, no one truly knows their end score going into the final round.

Therefore, if no one looks at their tokens, everyone must assume they could have picked up the lowest value treasure token of each tier, so still have everything to play for in the final round. Otherwise, if you know the scores, you could play safe (AKA boring) in the final round!

At least, that’s how I was taught the rules last week.

Thanks Yuri, I see it now but didn't yesterday (*sigh*). It is right there in the rulebook.

That's why you don't show them

I was thinking along the same lines...
If I just see the value of my treasure tokens and not those of all others I can only guess their values and it will create more tension for the final round... especially when players have a similar amount of tokens of the same colors.

I guess it makes it easier for the leader to play low risk in the final round if he sees by how many points he leads.

I have the earlier version, I thought for sure you don't reveal your points until the game's end.
