Part one of a two-episode series highlighting Train Games.
In this first episode, we try to help people define what a Train Game is. Sticking with that theme we’ve got a review of an upgrade for 18XX train games. Then we go off the rails a bit with our review of A Little Wordy, the latest game from Exploding Kittens. We finish off back on track with some initial thoughts on Great Western Trail and Rail Pass as well as plays of Villainous, DC Deck Building and Supershow.
