designed by Reiner Knizia, published by Out of the Box
A Reiner Knizia designed game that plays QUICK. There are six mines: each turn you play a settler or gold on a mine. If you play a settler, you can stake a claim. But be careful, you only have three claims you can stake, and if you place it too early, people will fill your mine with fool’s gold, which score nothing. Play too late, and you won’t be able to score on a lucrative mine. A game all about timing and patience and knowing when to strike. Or strike out, as the case may be.
For fans of Western themed games with a strong press-your-luck element, with some good old-fashioned cut-throat action thrown in.
One Line Verdict: Drop a claim on this one for a fun little filler.
