Lisboa – Reconstruct the City and Earn Wigs!
Lisboa is a game based on the reconstruction of the Portuguese capital city that took place after a series of terrible catastrophes. It was because of a powerful earthquake which was followed by a devastating tsunami that the city was almost totally destroyed. For this reason, the Marquis of Pombal, the minister of foreign affairs took over the task of reconstructing Lisboa with the help of engineers and architects.
The board of the game represents the map of the city, while the players represent the nobles of Lisboa who will use their influence to contribute to the reconstruction and development of the new city. While reconstructing the city, players will use the Royal Builder, who works with the architects to build the new city. Marquis will be of assistance in the development of the commerce and the King will provide players with political help in reopening the new Lisboa.
The main reason you are taking part in this reconstruction is not fame or money. You are noblemen or noblewomen, thus you wish to acquire Wigs, a valuable trading commodity of the Era and the means of scoring points in the game.
Lisboa has been launched on Kickstarter where it is over its funding goal.
