Mining Village is an Action card from Intrigue. It is a village (i.e., it gives +2 actions), and can also be used for a one-shot . This means it has a few distinct uses—as a way to get a very early expensive card by trashing it as soon as possible, as a mainstay of a village/smithy engine by never trashing it until the very end, or as a mega-turn enabler by buying up many Mining Villages and trashing them all on the same turn.
 Official FAQ
- First draw a card and get +2 Actions; then choose whether or not to trash Mining Village before moving on to other actions or other phases, getting + if you did.
- You may not trash Mining Village later in the turn, only right then.
- If you Throne Room a Mining Village, you cannot trash it twice (and so cannot get the + twice).

 Strategy Article
Original article by theory
Mining Village is best thought of as a one-shot Conspirator/Grand Market. Its ability makes it one of the best openers: by trashing it, you can slingshot to , , or possibly even much faster than you otherwise would be able to with a Silver. But to use it effectively, you have to commit to trashing it quickly; otherwise, you’ve used a critical opening buy on a useless card.
In the midgame, Mining Village is one of the most usefulnon-terminals; it’s good to stock up on them so you can cash them in all at once for a mega-turn to end the game.
The fact that Mining Village provides +Actions is really just a bonus. For pure Actions, you’re better off with the other special Villages (Native Village, Worker's Village, Fishing Village, Wandering Minstrel), since Mining Village’s special ability isn’t as helpful in an Action-oriented strategy (if you’re trashing the Mining Villages, you can’t count on them for Actions). But it’s a good foundation for a +Actions/+Cards chain if you remember to start scrapping them for cash near the end of the game.
