AquaSphere is a demanding game, rich in variety, which requires careful planning as well as flexibility. A fun and challenging gaming experience by Stefan Feld.

Welcome to the underwater research station AquaSphere stationed deep below the ocean's surface.
Your team: An engineer, a scientist, six exploratory submarines and a bunch of reprogrammable, ready-to-use bots.

Your tasks: Discover new types of crystals, develop your lab and keep a step ahead of your opponents!
Your challenges: Time is scarce, your lab size is limited, and annoying octopods keep entering the station and getting in your way!

AquaSphere is a demanding game, rich in variety, which requires careful planning as well as flexibility. With only 7 available actions, Stefan Feld's new hit makes for a fun and challenging gaming experience.

The game board in AquaSphere has two main areas: A research station comprised of six sectors in which your scientist conducts experiments and a headquarters where your engineer supervises preparation of the bots. During each of the four game rounds, you take several turns, and on each turn you either:

  • Use your engineer in the headquarters to program a bot; each round you can choose from three of the seven actions.
  • Have your scientist bring a bot to a sector to perform an action.

Through actions such as improving your lab, sending out submarines, collecting crystals, and examining octopi, you expand the abilities of your team or gather knowledge points, which are necessary to win. Additional challenges result from the limited size of your lab, which is your personal stock; you can increase the size of your lab, which makes life easier, but this costs valuable time.

AquaSphere is a challenging game of strategy and tactics with different paths to victory that requires planning in advance as well as skillful use of short-term opportunities.
