Deep Print has announced Skymines for September that reimplements Alexander Pfister’s Mombasa.
Fifty years ago, humanity began mining the Moon and the asteroids, and for decades that task was firmly kept in the hands of the World Government. But the turmoils of recent years have caused this enterprise to collapse. Now, adventurous companies and private investors take to the sky to revive this mining network.
As investors, you try to earn the most CrypCoin over the course of seven rounds. You do this by investing mined resources in companies and by spreading their outposts. You can improve your earnings by supporting your scientists’ research and by having them collect precious helium-3.
The heart of Skymines is a unique card programming and hand management system that requires careful and clever planning. It provides deep player interaction by letting you invest in any of the four companies as you see fit.
And as the combination of company abilities changes in each game of Skymines, there are endless synergies and strategies to explore.(Source: Publisher description)
The fundamental mechanics of Skymines are similar to Mombasa. But beyond a pure retheme, Skymines adds a campaign mode, multiple modules and a double-sided board.
Skymines is expected to be available from September and you can place your pre-order now. And as always with pre-orders at Meeples’ Corner, a payment is not necessary when you place the order, we will ask you for the payment instead when the game is in stock.
