App description: Update coming up! Be sure top grab it! Lots of fixes. AND The game is NOW free!!!

You are a couple of Gold Hunters searching for an Ancient Gold Mine supposed to be burried somewhere. You are going on a travel in mysterious worlds to find this Ancient Gold Mine.
But beware. Thieves are lurking about to steal your findings!

Game Features:
Like a classic board game players must move across the board on the designated routes. You can walk, travel by boat or fly for a fee.

There are several dig sites where the Ancient Gold Mine might be. No one knows its exact whereabouts. So you have to dig in hope to find it.

There are 5 different findings. Either you find some gold, more gold or much gold to help you get around. You may also encounter thieves who will steal all your belongings. When a player has found the Ancient Gold Mine it is all about getting home as fast as possible to get the deed to the mine.

In order to win, a player needs to have found a Permit to be able to claim the mine. Without this he cannot win. This also goes for the finder of the Ancient Gold Mine. The first player home with a Permit after the Ancient Gold Mine is found is the Winner.

You can choose to play with 1 or 2 dices. 2-4 players. Standard rules dictates that one must hit a dig spot with correct dice number in order to dig. Fast Play lets players stop on a dig site without hitting it directly by dice number.

STAY tuned, we are working on implementing AI and possibly multiplayer! It's going to be awesome!

I'm posting on behalf of my friends at Mad Silence Studios.
The mad silentists have been working around the clock to bring you their first game, Ancient Gold Mine! Ancient Gold Mine is a pass-and-play boardgame, which is something you don't see enough in the app store these days. It is simple to learn but a lot of fun to play. Give it a try with your family! Kids will love the bright and colorful graphics. You can check out an ad and a bit of gameplay footage in the videos below. Have fun!

Videos don't give much in the way of what's going on. And the strange color choices on the menu made it hard to read. I guess I could try watching it bigger, but there wasn't enough going on to make we want to watch it again.

Is there any strategy to the game or is it just roll, move, hope for the best?
