Miner Madness - Dig into Code Theory! Funny Gross learning!




Miner Madness is a co-op board game aimed at teaching critical and logical thinking. The players act as a team of miners that must navigate obstacles and avoid danger to dig up hidden treasures deep within the earth.

The team must work together to decide which directions to take, collect gems and find the raft to cross the river. These choices culminate at the end of the game when players must use what they’ve gathered to appease the cave troll. Keys to successful gameplay include communicating with other team members and creating functions to enhance the game and progress faster.
