Players can build their own layout by placing terrain, track pieces, buildings, and scenery on a board and run MINIS engines on them. Players can view the layout from the engine's perspective, as well as being able to sound their whistle, and stop or start them. The layout can also be viewed from a distance for players to take photos, and can also be viewed in augmented reality on supported devices. A gold gear will briefly appear on the layout for players to build track on and send an engine to collect it. Collecting three gold gears will unlock a surprise pack containing a new building or scenery piece. Players can also build a premade layout, and completing it will unlock a surprise pack containing a new engine. 50 engines from the MINIS range feature in the game.
