Created by Josh Wood (Cat Lady), Santa Monica challenges players to create their idea of the ultimate California beach. Players draft cards from the display that represent a variety of beach and street scenes and featuring various natural and man-made attractions. Their goal is to make their beach area the most attractive by creating natural areas, tourist attractions, or a combination for the locals.
Last month, AEG announced plans for another card drafting game, Truffle Shuffle (see “Unwrap Fun with ‘Truffle Shuffle’”).
Board Game Expo, also called “BGX,” is a new in-store gaming event launched this year by Gaming Days, LLC., the group behind Free RPG Day (see “Retailers to Host Board Game Expo”).
