At the opening screen you have several options available, there are 4 MODES, and each mode has 2 LEVELS.
TRIAL MODE: LEVEL 1 / LEVEL 2Q
FAMILY MODE: LEVEL 3 / LEVEL 4Q
ADVANCED MODE: LEVEL 5 / LEVEL 6Q
BUSINESS MODE: LEVEL 7 / LEVEL 8Q
Q denotes QUICKSTART level, and is available in all Modes. All players are randomly dealt and must pay for, 1 MINE LEASE and 2 DRILL REPORTs before the game begins. This allows players to immediately purchase a HEADGEAR and then start GOLD BULLION production, even before the first dice has been rolled. This is ideal if playing time is limited.
FASTBULLION is another option to guarantee a quick start to a game, but is restricted only to Levels 1 - 4Q. FASTBULLION awards all players a free125 kOz at the start of the game, so that everyone can start selling bullion at the BULLION MARKET, as soon as any player lands on one of the Bullion MarketBroker squares.
QUICKSTART and FASTBULLION can be selected separately, or used together, effectively allowing 4 individual levels in both TRIAL and FAMILY modes.
