Whale Riders

Grail Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for prolific designer Reiner Knizia's latest game, Whale Riders, which also features beautiful artwork by artist Vincent Dutrait.  The game supports 2-6 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in about 45 minutes.

Whale Riders is a racing game in which the players are young whale riders collecting and selling goods up and down the Ice Coast, trying to accumulate as much wealth as possible in the time allowed in order to win the game.  According to the Kickstarter page, the game is easy to learn, quick to play, and feels classic in nature.

The Kickstarter campaign page for the game features the rule book, how to play videos, and more.  There are stretch goals already unlocked for the game, which has funded, as well as more stretch goals to go.  If you are interested in this game, check out the campaign page here.  The campaign has about 10 days to go before it ends.  Expected delivery of the game is April 2021.
