The best game I can keep in my pocket

Strong title, right? So why so positive?

For starters it's a smooth and simple enough placement game. Easy to learn and once your 2 games in, your playing against your opponant, not to rules.

Speaking of which. The rules are well written and a doddle to follow for multiplayer games. The 2-3 /4 player cards scale well but for 4 player games, you will run out of mint counters :/ luckily I was aware of this and had a packet of actual mints on standby.

The cards are really well printered and cut but the rules don't fit in the tin and the corners are being bent every time it comes out :(

The counters are nice but they're white discs so there's not a lot to get wrong. One of mine had a small chip in the paint but that's no major issue for me.

The random advanced location cards add variety to every game for good repeatability and there is even a solitair mode with AI cards. I can't comment on those much as I've not tried it yet.

I'm glad to have this game and would recommend it totally. It would have 5☆ if there were more mint tokens and if the rules sheet was 2mm smaller or had radius corners to better fit in the tin.

...but thats the point. All this in a tin. It fits in my pocket and comes everywhere with me now. It plays in a space as small as a the folding tray on the back of a train/airline seat

GAME OVERVIEW

Mint Works is a light and straightforward worker placement game. Its compact size makes it easy to put in your pocket and take it anywhere. Its simple rules make it easy to introduce new players to the genre of worker placement.

During the game each player will have a limited amount of Mint Tokens, which represent their workers. Players will use these mint tokens to earn more tokens, take first player or buy and build plans. Plans are how players earn points. Some plans will give only points, others will give extra powers to the owner.

Once any player has at least 7 points earned (or if there are not enough plans to refill the stock) the end of the game is triggered. The game will then be over at the end of the current round.

Whoever has the most points provided by plans they have built wins!

 

1-4 PLAYERS | 10-20 MINS | AGES 13+
