The mining conflict
A tactical game about commodities in the Chilean desert by Martin Schlegel
Excitement in the Chilean desert. Valuable mineral resources have been found in this 1,200 km long desert along the Pacific Ocean coast: Gold, silver and copper. Several companies are already busy prospecting by erecting huge drilling rigs since the seams are deep under the surface. Due to security reasons the drilling rigs cannot be installed too close to each other, which is why each new rig limits the possibilities to erect new ones in the surrounding.
What's more, the mining rights have been limited by the government. The companies have received a concession for only two of the three commodities – and extracting the "wrong" type of commodity will result in penalties.
Atacama, part of Mücke Spiele's "Edition Bohrtürme" series of games, is a tactical game for 2 or 4 players.
