From Martin Wallace, Tinners' Trail is set in 19th century Cornwall where you represent a mining conglomerate at the height of the tin and copper mining industry. You must buy plots of land across Cornwall in auctions and survey them for tin and copper.
You are mining for copper and tin, attempting to sell when the prices are high. To reduce the cost of mining you can place developments, such as ports and trains. Once you have made your money you invest it in industries outside of Cornwall, which gains you victory points. The earlier you invest the better the return.
