Portugal is the most Western country in Europe. With a coast that spreads over 600km facing the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal uses the shipping routes in order to develop its industry.
Portugal mainland is a crucial geographical presence for the two autonomous regions, the islands of Madeira and the Azores.
Most of the exports from these regions are directed to the mainland. While the sea routes for tourism and goods play a role of great importance to the livelihood of these islands, they also offer luxury products and superb quality to the continent.
The rules are the same as the original game, with the exceptions presented below.
The map was designed for 3 and 4 players.
The real hook of this map is the importance of Lisbon on the map center.
The game usually grows from Lisbon since the companies can link to almost all cities on the map from there.
The twist is that each player can only make one connection to Lisbon per turn, be it by land or by sea. In fact, Lisbon and Oporto are the most important links in his map.
This expansion works very well with steam rules too.
