Read a review here: A Spelunking Adventure for 1 to 6. | Deep Dig | BoardGameGeek []

Deep Dig is an easy-to-learn adventure game for 1 to 6 players You can dig alone, or bring your friends along too. It takes about 10 minutes per player.

At first, the game will be lighthearted and a little goofy. But as you move down through the dig deck, things become darker, scarier, and deadly serious. At first you may be fighting bats and sleeping foxes, but eventually you will find yourself going toe-to-toe against ten thousand spiders or It That Hungers.

Deep Dig is a light game. It's easy to learn and you won't have to deep fry your brain just to figure out what your options are.

Now that's not to say that serious gamers won't enjoy Deep Dig. Every encounter has a compelling decision to make. While you can relax and do whatever you want, those who carefully choose which dangers to avoid, which tools to buy and when to use them, and whether to fight or escape from each monster, will have an edge over their opponents.

With 107 unique cards, there's plenty to explore. And even after you've seen all the cards you'll find that there are so many possibilities that you will never know for sure what's lurking around the corner. Every encounter is full of suspense.

IMPORTANT: Deep Dig requires about 12 counters per player (not included). You can use coins, glass beads, parts from other games, or any other small object as counters. You can also buy glass beads and other suitable counters from this very site (under shop > game pieces). Counters were not included because they would raise the price to $30 and most of you will already have coins you can use anyway.

Rulebook reviewed here:

Free print-and-play version available upon request. If you don't want to print all 180 cards, you can request a 57-card sampler. Card images will not include illustrations and will be designed to minimize ink usage. Allow a week after the first request for compiling the print-and-play images.

There will be a how-to-play video, an introductory video, and an actual game play video coming soon.

Update v1.1 : Fixed typo on Possibly Illegal Drugs by adding "roll the die and".
