Gosh Darn Bubbles! is a casual, light-hearted, underwater-themed card game. It is easy to learn, designed for 2-6 players, and takes 5-20 minutes to complete, and is best suited for ages 14+.

The Goal of the Game is to be the first player to collect three Treasures. Players earn Treasure by finding and playing Sunken Chests, but watch out for Bubbles! They prevent Sunken Chests from providing Treasure and do nothing when they are played.

There are many clever animals that live in the sea's cool depths. Some of them are friendly and are happy to help you find Sunken Chests. Others are a bit mean and will make your quest for fortune as difficult as possible. Be polite and make friends with as many of them as you can. You are a guest in their home!

Featuring illustrations by 12 professional artists from around the world, Gosh Darn Bubbles! is as fun to look at as it is to play! Shown above is one card from each artist, with 20 additional unique card designs included in each copy, adding up to a total of 108 cards in the game!
