The Great Card Game
Stronghold Games
Coal Baron: The Great Card Game is a stand-alone worker placement card game based on the board game, Coal Baron.

Description from publisher:
Immerse yourself in the world of coal mining. Use lorries to extract coal from your pits and load them to wagon trains. But only if you equip those wagon trains with an engine and an order, will you be able to ship the coal off to gain victory points. This calls for quite some skillful management as you assign tasks to your workers and try to get the most out of your limited loading area. In the end, the winner is the player who has served the most valuable orders and managed to acquire profitable shares and objectives.
