“Coal Baron” is our Game of the Month

The theme of coal mining apparently has us in its black grip – this month we give our award to yet another game about the mining business, this time created by one of the most reliable game author duos ever: Michael Kiesling and Wolfgang Kramer.

Up and down goes the elevator, probing deep into the nether regions of a coal mine (small reductions here for the accident-prone game material), left and right we dig into the mountain, trying to preserve the balance. Of course there are also missions to fulfill, which means planning ahead and maximizing one’s moves.

The nice trait of “Coal Baron” is its low complexity – the game mechanics are logical and easy to grasp, therefore it is an ideal introduction game that also keeps professionals happy.
