Podcast 171 - Treasure Mountain

Treasure Mountain
This week, we give Treasure Mountain by August Games its long overdue review! Treasure Mountain is a worker placement game for 2-4 players (1-4 if you have the expansion), where players compete to earn the most points by mining gems our their personal mines and earning the King's favor. The most unique element is that each dwarven worker has a number, representening the length of their beard. Dwarves with longer beards can bump those with shorter beards, who are then re-placed and can bump other workers. Check out the full review for our impression of this mechanic and how it influences the game!
