Features of The Winter Wonder Express:

Player questions in each train car provide players with prompts to fill in the scene how they want and with how they view their winter holidays, making this train special to your players, helping them to get invested in each scenario, and encouraging them to think about situations before acting.

Character and item interactions may occur depending on the order that cards are drawn, changing how train cars behave when you replay the adventure.

36 unique train cars full of different NPCs, puzzles, events, encounters, and more give plenty of options for making a magical story.

Multiple ways to play are provided, allowing you to enjoy this game with the print-and-cut train cards, a six-sided die, or a deck of playing cards.
