Do you even see this game board? It gives me all the feelings of being at a Disney Park, standing in the queue in Frontierland. I can almost smell the turkey legs! The sculpted middle of the game board depicts Big Thunder Mountain. It’s designed so you can roll marbles through the mountains and into the mine shafts. As you play, you’ll navigate mining carts through those mine shafts in the mountain and pick rocks or pan in the water for gold. You’ll earn points along the way, and whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
But remember, you’re out in the wild. Who knows when the elements will work against you? You’ll have to look out for landslides and stay safe from danger. But perhaps you’ll make some discoveries along the way that will make all that danger worth it.
Funko Games’ Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is designed for two to four players, ages nine and up. The game has deck-building aspects, so it’s a terrific gateway game for learning that technique. Between supplies cards, fate cards, and town share cards, you’ll have plenty to juggle as you go prospecting in the west.
