Santiago de Cuba Boxshot

Friedberg/Hamburg, September 5th 2011 – „Santiago de Cuba“, the new board game from eggertpiele will be published by Pegasus Spiele in time for SPIEL 2011 in Essen. Starting September 1st , all distribution and communication duties are being handled by Pegasus Spiele, which takes over from their business partners at AMIGO Spiel + Freizeit GmbH. At this October's SPIEL eggertspiele will be presenting „Santiago de Cuba“ at their booth.

„We are happy that we managed to find such a successful board game publisher like Pegasus Spiele for our latest effort“, says eggertspiele's Peter Eggert. „I am sure that this will signal a further leap ahead for us.“ Pegasus' joint-CEOs Andreas Finkernagel and Karsten Esser both share this view: „Santiago de Cuba“ is a perfect fit for our current line of high-quality board games, and will be one of the core titles in our fall line-up.“

The streets and buildings of Cubas oldest and still second largest city „Santiago de Cuba“ are bustling with activity, as a freighter is waiting to be loaded with cigars, rum and citrus fruits. It is the player's job as a merchant to gain the support of the locals and the most important authorities in the city's colorful port district. Only the player that finds the most clever ways to invest his money and use arising opportunities will become the game's winner in the end. Every game poses new tactical challenges for the player, thanks to ever-changing combinations of buildings and inhabitants. „Santiago de Cuba“ is a feast for board game fans of all ages, thanks to its combination of intuitive rules, gameplay variety and caribbean flair.

The game was created by Michael Rieneck, co-author of eggertspiele's popular title „Cuba“. This marks the fourth collaboration between them, as eggertspiele already published his previous games „Cuba“, „Rummelplatz“ and „El Presidente“.„Santiago de Cuba“ is illustrated by Michael Menzel.
