“At this year’s Beach-a-Palooza, Steven has a surefire way to win: Recruit more Stevens from the timeline and have them all front their own bands!”

Steven Universe is an incredibly popular animated series created by Rebecca Sugar for Cartoon Network in 2013. In the show, Steven discovers the world of the Crystal Gems, magical beings with a fascinating backstory of escape, betrayal and freedom. Steven Universe has created an amazingly lush world of characters, and now Cryptozooic Entertainment has announced the boardgame  Steven Universe: Beach-a-Palooza from designers Erica Bouyouris (Bosk) and Andrew Wolf (Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle).

In Beach-a-Palooza, 3-6 players take on the role of Steven. Well, alternate versions of Steven from different timelines, to be exact. Each player’s Steven is battling in the Beach-a-Palooza to put together the best band and win the whole show. But beware, because both corrupted and homeworld gems are crashing the party and want to ruin the show. Players draft cards to recruit both their band and their audience, and to generate energy and other effects. Use your fusion powers! Attack and bubble the corrupted gems! Play your cards right, and your band might be the big winner!

Look for Steven Universe: Beach-a-Palooza at your FLGS during the second quarter of 2020.
