Renegade Game Studios Taking Pre-Orders For Embarcadero

There's gold in them thar hills! And while there's plenty of prospectors out there, you're happy to stay in San Francisco, ready to make money off of them when they come to town. That's the story in Embarcadero, a new board game coming from Renegade Game Studios. They've started taking pre-orders. Go get your name on the list to get yours when it releases.

From the announcement:

San Francisco, 1850. The Gold Rush is in full swing. Ships stream steadily in San Francisco Bay, brimming with would-be treasure hunters. Anchored off the coast of the boomtown lies a flotilla of abandoned vessels, their crews long since taken by gold fever. 

 A few business moguls stake their claims on these derelict ships, towing them into the harbor to house their growing empires. Over time, this wharfside district, known as the embarcadero, would become the very heart of business enterprise in the thriving port city, 

 In Embarcadero, players step into the shoes of these savvy entrepreneurs. Build San Francisco on the hulls of these abandoned vessels and carve out a foothold in the city council. Do you have what it takes to rule the waterfront? 

 The game takes place over three rounds. In each round, players take turns playing cards and placing tiles to take control of wharves to earn points and influence.
