Imperial Miners is a light engine-building card game from the designer Tim Armstrong (Arcana Rising,
Orbis) in which players build their mines using a clever card activation system. This standalone game
is set in the popular Imperial Settlers universe and offers beautiful illustrations, easy rules, and satisfying
gameplay full of combos and synergies between the cards.
In Imperial Miners players build their own mines by playing cards to their tableau. They start from the
ground floor and develop downwards. Each time a card is added to the mine it activates itself and all
the cards above it rewarding a player with satisfying combos. Cards belong to six different factions and
offer various abilities. Players are free to mix different factions in their mines for better results.
Imperial Miners offers an impressive replayability thanks to its wide range of different cards and
progress tracks, which are added to the game during setup (3 out of 6 in the game box). Players advance
the tracks throughout the game acquiring immediate benefits to synergize with their cards trigger even
more satisfying combos.
