Description Edit | History

Strike it rich with this exciting mining-themed board game!

Gold Mine is a unique tile-laying game in which players build a maze of mine tunnels and control miners that traverse the mine collecting gold nuggets. Players race to be the first to collect enough gold to exit the mine and stake a claim. It may sound easy, but the greedy miners have several tricks up their sleeves in order to gain an advantage—including sneaking through secret passages, fighting for gold, and scaring away other miners with bats.

With a different game board every time, a great balance of luck and strategy, and the addition of optional rules, this game is bound to be a family favorite for years to come!

More Information Edit | History

Game length is variable, with a 2-player game lasting about 30 minutes and a 6-player game about 1 hour.

Gold Mine at its core is simple to learn and play and is ideal for all ages. However, through the addition of any combination of optional rules, the level of strategy and complexity can be increased dramatically for more experienced gamers. The vast range of variation makes it an ideal candidate for both family get-togethers and gaming groups, as it can easily cater to the needs of both.

Three optional rules are included with the game: Mud Puddles, 5 Tile Strategy and Alliances. There is also a collection of additional variations on the Stratus Games website, which include, among many others: Phantom of the Mine, Special Abilities, Cursed Pirate Gold and Unions. Players are also encouraged to dive into game design themselves by creating new variations and submitting them for others to enjoy.
