  • Engine Building: Equipment cards offer various advantages. Some of them make it possible to perform some actions without having to go to the related islands, while other cards provide opportunities that are not available on the board.
  • Enrichment: Enrichment Center adds a lot of Strategy and player interaction to the game. You can buy your opponents’ enriched resources to complete your deals. This will cost you money but will also undermine your opponents’ plans.
  • No Blocking: Unlike most of the Worker Placement Games, there is no action-blocking in Miner’s Lagoon. You can only make things harder for your opponents as it will require an additional Merchant to perform an action that is already performed by another player within the same round.
