In Ocean Crisis, you must cooperate to try saving the world's oceans from being overflooded with rubbish and destroyed by pollution. The players must work together to clean up rubbish and prevent it from disappearing into the water and destroying wildlife.

The game, which can usually be played by 2-5 players, is about cooperation. In the game, the players together as the Ocean Defense Team are on a mission to clear garbage from the beach, research and develop new eco-abilities, and together prevent the formation of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch aka The Garbage Island.

In addition to the main goal of collecting the massive amounts of garbage, players also encounter other smaller rescue missions and scenarios. Each with their unique mechanisms and stories. The game can also be played solo, or by up to 10 players. The game's normal rules are intended for an age group starting at 8 years, but if you play with the simplified rules, the age can be from 6 years.

Can you assemble the best team to prevent the world's ocean from being overflooded with garbage?

The game includes:
1 x Playingboard
1 x Ocean current board
1 x Bag
2 x Wooden dice
3 x Mission cards
3 x Scenario cards
4 x Wooden meeples
16 x Round cards
20 x Defense Team meeples
102 x Road tiles

The rules included are in English. The rules are available in PDF-format in French, German and Chinese.

I believe Ocean Crisis achieves exactly what it sets out to do: being an fun, easy to play game with a great message!
I can see this working great with kids due to the simple rules, cutesy artwork and components. However, it also works for “grown ups” as was evident by the losses I suffered against that river of garbage. One should not discount this as a kids game, it’s a family coop that anyone can play and enjoy.
There is a bit of randomness going on and despite your best efforts things can go down the drain, but I do not think it’s a big enough issue to dissuade me from playing this game.
Ocean Crisis is a good pick for those that enjoy the theme and are looking for an easy to learn and play coop. – Play It Yourself (Link)

This is a theme that I cannot tell you how much it spoke to me. When you live near an ocean you come to understand and appreciate just how beautiful it is.

I like the game’s theme, there’s a lot of cool scenarios, who doesn’t like dolphins and sharks. It’s neat that there’s a lot of extra content in box besides the base game.

It’s a really solid cooperative game, where you got this different configuration of workers depending on the player count. Deinitely enjoyed our time with it.
