Whistle Stop: Rocky Mountains is an expansion to the game Whistle Stop. Whistle Stop is a game of tile-laying, route building and pick-up and deliver in which you are moving your fleet of trains across the country. The charming art style and simple mechanisms made it a fantastic gateway into the world on train games.
In 2018, Bezier Games released the Rocky Mountains expansion which added a number of new elements into the game, including an impressive, multi-layered board extension, which represents the graded terrain of the Rocky Mountains.
With this expansion, your fledgling railroad company will have to grow quickly to gain the extra resources needed to build out over the treacherous terrain of the mountains. Fortunately the expansion adds some more fuel stops along the way to help you manage and maximise your resources. Being a pioneer and expanding the network of towns served by the railroad network has its rewards, but other companies will quickly follow, making use of the routes you have forged.
In addition to the mountain range expansion board, this expansion contains five new End tiles, four new Special tiles, two additional train route tiles, two new variable common resources tiles, two new town tiles, four new six-point gold nugget tokens, four new whistle stop tiles, two new gold nugget tiles, nine new upgrades, and six new shares in the Rocky Mountain Railroad Company.
With further to travel and more resource intensive routes, Whistle Stop: Rocky Mountains definitely adds some complexity to the base game that will appeal to some gamers. For fans of the original game, there is also plenty of additional variety to enjoy!
With the new upgrades and the new end tiles, Whistle Stop: Rocky Mountains invites you to rethink you strategies and focus on new ways to manage your trains, shares and resources to score more fame points than your opponents.
