REVIEWS OF THE BOARD GAME (first edition)
"The gameplay is great, I think it's a super fun game...This is a great tile-laying exploration game, one that I would very much recommend..."

"It's a nice little filler game...it's all about optimizing your turns, making sure you're in a position where you can maximize your options depending on which cards you're going to draw."

HOW TO PLAY
On your turn, move up to 3 steps in the mine, then do one action.

Building Rooms
Building rooms is the main way to score points! If you move into a room that doesn't exist yet, you have to build it. Spend cards from your hand that include all the gems on the door you're building. (Most cards have 2 gems, and can be spent as either or both!) Choose the rotation of the new room and add it to the mine.

Collecting Gems
For your action, use a room's special ability to draw more gem cards. Different rooms have different rules for drawing cards, so choosing the right room for your situation is key! (If you can't find a useful room, you can always draw a single card instead.)

At the start of your next turn, if you have more than 4 cards, you'll have to discard down to 4.

Winning
In Rush Mode, the players race against each other. Have the most points at the end of the round when anyone reaches the point target.

In Crisis Mode, the players race against the clock. You'll be forced to "burn" cards from the deck every turn, removing them from the game. Reach the target score before the cards are all gone!

Great!

This a a well-made, good-looking, fun game and app! At its heart, Gem Rush is a fairly straightforward tile laying game where each tile has certain costs, point rewards, and special actions. The game can be played competitively or cooperatively and deserves more exposure than it seems to have at this point. I’m looking forward to getting my friends interested and playing along.

I like it but...

I like the solo play. Fun time killer but the online play is non existent. I can start an online game and leave it sit waiting for others to join, but since you can’t search for other online games there is no way to join someone’s game. Maybe I am the only one attempting online play? Doubtful...
