Mint Works (2017) – Meeple Like Us
The thing that I like about mint tin games is that they tend to pack a lot of ambition into those tiny containers. As gimmicky as the whole concept is, I’ve been impressed over the years by a number of the titles that have sought to miniaturise complex components into more digestible form factors. When the average board game box is so full of sterile air that it could serve in the UK parliament, games like these are as refreshing as the mints they rarely contain. Mint Works is a good example of the form in both name and inclination.
