The latest release from our pals at Victory Point Games is a family title, designed by Jeremy Lennert, going by the name of Gem Rush. Will you be the first out of the mine with the biggest stash of loot? Gem Rush can be had for an MSRP of $19.95 in its boxed incarnation.
Grab your digging tools and prepare for Gem Rush from designer Jeremy Lennert, an easy to learn, 1-6 player blitz to build a magical gem mine. Use your gem cards to construct new rooms, and use the rooms to replenish your gems. Race your friends for fortune in rush mode, or work together to save the mine in crisis mode. Either way, you’ve got to dig fast and manage your gems carefully.
A typical card includes 2 gemstones; you can count it as either–or as both, if you can find the right spot to use them. The game board changes each time you play, as the playing area is constructed out of modular room tiles, each with different abilities and different opportunities for further construction.
Get your mining picks ready and dig up Gem Rush today!
