Designed by Justin Blaske (Area 1851), Mint Works is a refreshingly light worker placement game for 1 to 4 players with easy-to-learn rules and exciting strategic gameplay, all in about ten minutes.
Its compact size makes it easy to put in your pocket and take it anywhere. Coupling that with its approachable ruleset, Mint Works is a great tool for introducing 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!
