It's slowly slipping into Winter in the UK, after an unusually mild Autumn following a rubbish Summer.

As the chilly evenings appear, my mind wanders back to a Summer in the Sunshine, sipping (well glugging...) cocktails by the beach in Maine. Ahhh, those were the days...

I've noticed quite a few of the games I like or am interested in involve beaches in some way, so I thought I'd make a list.

Please add to it if you like!

Mostly an abstract, but this light retheme of Cronberg is amusing and beach oriented. Competing for the best spots on the beach

High tide and low tide, so beach is involved. Otherwise one of the most dry, dusty games I ever played.

I've never played this game, but I love watching the Queen video. It makes me not miss the beach so much.

Lots of beach, but the question is whether you get back there in one piece...

A fun game of outguessing one another. Using cards, you select which beach (Azzurra, Bikini, Coquito, or Diablo) you want to build a hut on, and whether you want to build on the beach itself or a different terrain type (water, rock, or grass). You can also try to steal other player's huts or place a tiki figure to protect your hut from being stolen.

The main action in this game is placing little lounge chair pieces to claim beach territory. Check them out:

As you may have guessed, I like the beach theme. I have been thinking about getting this one even though abstracts are not my thing.

The object of this game is to bring visitors to the beaches by using your cards to place the world's longest cruise ships on the water. This cruise ships are so huge, that they span the ocean between pairs of islands, allowing tourists to exit from either end, bringing tourism to both islands at once!

If you bring enough tourism to a specific island, the tourists will celebrate by forming themselves into a human cylinder (like a human pyramid, but even harder!); the captains of any opposing cruise ships near that island will be dejected that the rival company managed to outdo their own, and leave. You can also force your opponent's cruise ship to leave by playing two of your cards and summoning a mole to board that ship, tricking everyone on board into thinking that they should cruise to the exotic "island" of Oklahoma instead or something. I dunno; that mechanic never made sense to me. I just know that tourists forming human cylinders are good for you and bad for your rival.

Not really what you're looking for here, but this is a good one for playing while on a beach.
