Everyone loves jewels, but too often we don't reflect on where that jewel came from and the effort that was taken to obtain the jewels for your enjoyment. Mine Shift is a quick 2 player strategy game where each player not only maneuvers their 4 jewels around the board, but they maneuver and change the very board itself! I think the cover does a great job instilling the visual idea into the player's mind. So, strap on some head lamps, grab your pick, and start singing Heigh-Ho as we enter the Mine that is constantly ready to Shift.

The game is very quick and simple to learn, and you will be playing before you know it. The game includes 27 nicely crafted tiles which have random walls placed throughout the tiles (each tile divided into 4 segments). The players shuffle the tiles and draw 10 tiles creating a 3x3 box with 2 tiles which off-shoot the square to create each player's starting piece/home tile. The goal of the game is to get your 4 jewels from your start piece to your opponent's start piece (or your home tile). Each player takes 3 actions a turn and can choose from either of these: moves a jewel (or also referred to as a stone), rotates a tile, or shifts a tile. The player must move at least one jewel during their turn.

Being able to rotate the tile pieces and shift them reminded me of The aMAZEing Labyrinth board game (Day 16), and players are allowed to jump over other stones like in Chinese Checkers (and the whole concept of moving your stones to your opponent's starting area as well). If you like The aMAZEing Labyrinth and Chinese Checkers, I think that you will enjoy this game. The game can also be adapted or changed to your liking. Because the game comes with 27 tiles, you can create a bigger starting board and the game will be different each time.

I chose this game because it got good reviews from Mensa Mind Games and Games magazine. I am a collector of games, owning thousands. I found Mine Shift, just okay, in that it didn't challenge or engage me enough for it to be a game that I would go to on a regular basis. I would recommend it as a children's game as I have played it with my grandchildren and they have enjoyed it.

When the game arrived, we all groaned as it reminded us of a game we had played (and enjoyed) Amazing Labrynth- we did not want a smilar game to the one we had outgrown
We decided to play it once and soon realised that it was more complex and varied and a fair amount of thought and strategy could be used
We enjoyed it alot

The rules of this game have been easy to learn and has become a favourite with youngsters aged between 8 and 15years old. However; in order to provide a more challenging variation, the older children have enjoyed playing to their own game setup using more tiles in the layout. The game time has generally been about 15 minutes.

I just started playing this game with my mom. It reminds me of Pentago in one way but it is very different. Considering this is our first time our novice status did not engender a variety of strategies to defeat each other and finish faster. However, I think that with good planning which is crucial for the game, there are infinite ways to defeat each other while creating new strategies. If you want to make this game more challenging try a variation by adding more tiles to the game with 4 gems per individual player. You can never get bored with this game after you master one set of challenges because you can simply add more tiles and change the order of tiles around in infinite ways according to the rules.At least one of your moves however, must involve moving your jewel pieces. Never get bored with this game. Never give this game away!!!

I gifted this to my 8-year-old daughter and it became an instant favorite of hers. The components are top notch and it is a remarkably easy game to learn. With multiple setup options, you'll probably never play the same game twice.

Each game lasts about 10 minutes, making Mine Shift a great filler game.

It may not work its way onto a favorites list for adults, but it's a great game for playing with kids in the 6-14 year range, in my estimation.

It doesn't seem like one has much control over winning the game. It is more dependent on the tiles near your home square.

We both love it! She used strategy from the first game, which she won! It only takes about 10 minutes to play.
