For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of this game I had seen on a review I watched. From what I remember about the game, if I am correct, there were several "paths" or "trails" that led to different mining or mineral areas. I believe there was either a dice element where you could place yourself further up a specific trail than another player. I think the trails went to places like a lake (or other areas). I believe that as the game progresses, each area (trail area) gets mined out (less materials are available). Because I forget what the game is, I am having a hard time explaining it. Hopefully someone can help me out? Does anyone know what game this might be?

No, from what it looks like, it is not Magnum Sal. On the board itself there were trails and each player could place their piece higher on the trail (perhaps based on cards or dice in their hand). I wish I could explain it better. Thanks for your help!

You can look through the mining family, see if anything looks familiar:

I had actually done this earlier this evening. I thought it was Sutter's Mill, but it's not. I am wondering at this point if it actually isn't a mining game (in general), but one where you try to collect sets of minerals (etc)... perhaps a set collection style game? It's actually getting on my nerves not knowing what game it is... lol

Also, if I remember correctly, the scoring mechanics were unique as well... the more I think about it, I think it's a set collection type game!
