Pledge now

Welcome to Whale Riders - Grail Games' sixth collaboration with designer Reiner Knizia and artist Vincent Dutrait, and our 18th Kickstarter campaign. We hope you may come along for the ride...!

Here at Grail Games, we love what we do, we love great games and we love our fans. To thank our followers for helping us to make some fun board games over the last six years, we have lowered the pledge price for this game as low as it can go. We have subsidised shipping costs as much as we can. We don't want you to miss out on pledging for Whale Riders, because we aren't sure how many copies will make it to retail.

Whale Riders is a new design with a classic feel from famed game designer Reiner Knizia. In 45 minutes of play, 2-6 players will race to the end of the Ice Coast and back, buying and selling as many resources as possible, to make the money needed to acquire the richest prizes. Will you skip opportunities to gain the greatest treasures, or will you make your money slowly along the way?

The amazing “Knizia-Dutrait-Grail Games” team, which brought you Medici and Yellow & Yangtze, is back with their new game: Whale Riders! Sailing along the Ice Coast, players compete in a true race to become the richest merchant. With a classic feel and amazing art, Whale Riders offers players a stunning new universe to live in, where you will face tense choices as you strive to get the best prizes from the Coast.
