AEG Taking Orders For Santa Monica

I am still livin' with your... ghost.

Wait, wrong Santa Monica. This is the new board game from AEG. It would've been released in stores this month, but considering the state of affairs in the world, AEG's decided to let you order some directly from them. You can head over and get yours now.

From the announcement:

A new game from Josh Wood, designer of Cat Lady! In Santa Monica you are developing a beachfront community in sunny southern California! You’ll need to attract tourists, provide interesting things for them to do, build up your boardwalk and your oceanfront attractions and keep the locals happy.

In Santa Monica, you are trying to create the most appealing neighborhood in Southern California. Will you choose to create a calm, quiet beach focusing on nature, a bustling beach full of tourists, or something in between to appeal to the locals?

Each turn, you will draft a feature card from the display to build up either your beach or your street. These features work together to score you victory points. The player with the most points wins!
