The Game's Afoot: COAL BARON

Tuesday, Mar 18, 2014 at 11:24am

Josef, our board game guru, recently returned from an exhibition of board games. There he had the opportunity to "test drive" some of the latest Euro-style board games that have almost entirely reinvented the board game world.

He came away impressed with Coal Baron, a game in which you are the owner of a coal mine fulfilling contracts for various types of coal. But the orders are very specific about the type of coal they demand. Since each kind is in a different mine level,you must expand your tunnels, and that costs money. It can also cost you the game.

Coal Baron is a game for 2 to 4 players ages 10 & up. Sessions take approximately 60-75 minutes to complete.
