Ocean Treasures Board Game Rules

You will need:

  • 1 die
  • Marker for each player

How to play:

Shuffle the shell cards, then place them face down on the “Shell Cards” spot on the board. Each player picks a marker and places it on the “Start” square. Roll the die to find out who begins. The player who rolls the lowest number starts the game.

The first player rolls the die and moves that number of squares. If a player lands on a square with a shell on it, he or she must pick a shell card from the pile, then read and follow the instructions. The player’s turn ends then unless the card tells the player to continue.

When a player lands on a bridge, he or she gets to move forward to the nearest bridge ahead of the player’s current placement and cross to wherever the bridge ends. When landing on a waterfall, the player must move backwards to the nearest waterfall behind the player’s current position and follow it to wherever it ends. The play ends after crossing the bridge or the waterfall, unless the players land on a shell square, in which case the player will then pick up a shell card and follow the instructions on the card.

The winner of the game is the player to first make it to square 100 with an exact roll.
