Hold Your Breath! is the final chapter in the "Get Bit Casual Trilogy" by Mayday Games, but you don't need to know anything about the first two games in the series to play this one, other than that we are revisiting the dumbest pirates known to man. They have been kicked off the ship by their captain in Walk the Plank and chased by sharks in Get Bit, and now they face their final challenge.
In Hold Your Breath! each player assumes the role of a pirate treading water in the ocean. The game is played in two rounds. In the first round, each player may dive deeper, providing they have the "Swim" and "Air" cards to do so. Players press their luck each turn since it is the pirate who dives the deepest in round one AND resurfaces in round two who is the winner.
Players can play "Panic", "Shark", and other nasty cards on the other players, slowing their progress. In the second round each player struggles to reach the surface before he runs out of air. Most of the pirates may not make it back to the surface, but the one who makes it back alive AND dove the deepest is the winner. Be careful, though, because if you dove the deepest in the first round, you will surely have the toughest time getting back to the surface alive.
