Coal Baron is set in Essen, on the verge of the 20th century. A time when endless supplies of coal are abundant in the earth and ripe for the taking!
In Coal Baron, you are the owner of a coal mine fulfilling contracts for various types of coal. Spend capital to buy coal carts and expand tunnels as you dig a variety of coal.
Complete orders to gain victory points. However, the orders are very specific about the type of coal they demand. Since each kind is in a different mine level, you must expand your tunnels, costing even more money. Finances are tight and each company has a limited number of workers. Be careful, the later you assign a job, the more workers are needed to get that job done. Once everyone runs out of workers, the shift is over. After three shifts, whoever has the most victory points wins.
Now, get your hands dirty! As the coal miners say in Essen, Gl?ck auf! (Good luck!)
