In Imperial Miners, players build their own mines by playing cards to their tableau. They start from the ground floor and develop downward. Each time a card is added to the mine, it activates itself and all the cards above it, rewarding a player with satisfying combos. Cards belong to six different factions and offer various abilities. Players are free to mix different factions in their mines for better results.

Imperial Miners offers an impressive replayability thanks to its wide range of different cards and progress tracks, which are added to the game during setup. Players advance the tracks throughout the game acquiring immediate benefits to synergize with their cards trigger even more satisfying combos.
