Roxley bringing Santorini to iOS/Android

So, we were back and then we went away. Yes, it’s been 2 weeks since our last post but, this time, it wasn’t intentional. Truth of the matter is, there just hasn’t been a lot of news regarding digital board games. Sure, we missed Carcassonne – Tiles & Tactics landing on the Switch, but I just couldn’t get excited enough to write a post about only THAT. I kept waiting for some other stuff I could bundle together. No such luck.

Then, today we learned that Roxley is bringing their snazzy building game, Santorini to both iOS and Android! That’s pretty big news. What’s even bigger is that you can sign up now to get on the Early Access bandwagon and start testing it as soon as tomorrow!

Click here to sign up for the invitation-only Early Access period and, who know, you could be playing Santorini on your phone by tomorrow evening.

What can we expect from a digital version of Santorini?
