[prMac.com] Mountain View, California - Order of Magnitude Games is pleased to announce the release of a free version of their iPad board game, Mother Lode. Players can sample a two-player human versus computer match before deciding to upgrade.
Mother Lode is a family style board game where players control miners on the surface of a dying planet, trying to escape with the most ore. Players take turns moving their miners, removing land tiles from the planet, and moving creatures. The play field becomes increasingly dangerous as more of the planet's surface is removed. When flipped, land tiles reveal actions that players can use to help themselves or hinder their opponents. Miner value is hidden until the end of the game.
