"Gold Mine" Board Game Receives Top Honors
The Toy Man Product Guide has honored Stratus Games’ new tile placement board game, Gold Mine, as one of the top 50 products of 2010 and one of the top 10 products of the 4th quarter.
By: Stratus Games
To be considered for an award, a product must first pass a strict evaluation process that includes "random public hands-on evaluation, independent evaluator reports, analysis of functionality and psychological response results in addition to multiple other evaluation elements." Top-rated products are then continually monitored during the period in which the award falls and voted on by the Toy Man evaluators. The winning products are those that "pave the way for others to follow" and that "set the bar which encourages those to follow to match or exceed."
According to the Toy Man, "Gold Mine presents a true challenge with no two games being exactly the same. A constant push to make use of creative thinking for game play narrative and strategic play development is a common characteristic of this game."
The complete Gold Mine evaluation report will be published soon on the Toy Man Product Guide website.
