Gather ore to use in crafting! Create chains of three or more tiles to drop the ore to the bottom of the grid.
This is a Matching-style minigame.
This is a Mining minigame, and can be started at any Mining Node.
| Difficulty: Based on table
Standard Matching minigame. Left-click on a tile and drag the cursor through vertical or horizontal connecting tiles until you create a chain of at least 3 tiles, then release the mouse to "harvest" them. Tiles directly above will settle down. If this results in a special tile reaching the bottom row, that tile will be collected, too.
Time is limited, so it is important to quickly identify the special tiles and plan your chains to get them to the bottom. A good plan is to always go from top to bottom, clearing as many as you can of the same color. This will concentrate the other 2 colors, yielding longer chains which add more time to the clock and a much larger chunk of points to your score.
If you get lucky enough to get some dynamite to the bottom, leave it there and work on getting as much Ore and Gems as low above the dynamite as you can before you blow it. In this way, you can make a huge haul and win the minigame in a single stroke! Watch the clock and, if it is getting low, blow every dynamite and other special tiles you have left. You could get lucky, and special tiles do you absolutely no good if they are still sitting on the board when the time runs out!
