Podcast 138 - Whistle Stop
Welcome back to Dragon’s Demize, everyone! For our first official review of 2019, we’re tackling Whistle Stop. This tile-laying, pickup-and-deliver train game is full of colorful charm. Players compete to earn the most points by exchanging resource cubes for stocks and points. Along the way, they’ll build their routes, purchase upgrades, and maybe even dig for gold! Whenever an individual locomotie is retired, that player earns a bonus, so make sure to get a many as you can to the finish line!
If you’re interested in learning more about how to play Whistle Stop, keep an eye on our Youtube channel for a new episode of Board Game Bistro coming out soon.
We also chat about what we’ve been playing. Greg had a chance to try out some new games with friends. The Champion of the Wild is a party-pleaser that he looks forward to playing again, and Catacombs is a dungeon-crawler mixed with a dexterity game.
Thank you as always to O Abnormal and Agata Poniatowski for the artwork and Strangelette for the music.
