The Gallerist is my best selling game. Being the most commercial and well-succeed game on that field. It's also the only game I have on top 100.
Because players always receive small bonus and the ability to work with other players to achieve success among the artists, leave the players with a very nice positive flavor.
The game is a caricature of the art world by treating art and the artists themselves as a commodity in modernity.
In the game, Artists are important, but their fame and the way media promotes their art are even more important. To be successful in this world players need to have famous artists independent of the art they produce. It's funny that one player criticized the game in BGG comments precisely because of it.

Best position: 144

My first published game. What's Your Game was the publisher and the art was created by Mariano Iannelli, CEO of the company.
Many prefer this edition art to the new one, and talk about it as my heaviest game to the date. It was with this game that my dream of being a game designer begin, and I have to thank the vision of this publisher.
The game took me 5 years since I start drawing it to its release and had a really difficult birth.
I remember that the first time we playtested it, within my old heavy game group, it had 24 different regions, and one hour after we begun setting the game up, we did not even start playing.

To me, Vinhos have one of the best mecanisms I ever created, the Quadrel.

My latest design presented at Origins, with its principal released at GenCon. It's the first published game not shown for the first time at the Essen fair and the 3rd heavy-game designed with the brutal production quality from Eagle Gryphon Games.
Lisboa is also art heavy, and the 3rd game I worked with the beautiful game artist Ian Ó'Toole.
This game follows my usual line of heavy-games, but for the first time in my work, it has a strong base of history. It is also driven by cards with a hand management mechanism, allowing the players to create powerful combos with the cards, and align them with other elements of the game to make them ever stronger. I hope players find this fun.

Lisboa is about the rebuilding of my hometown during the XVIII century and is the city where I live, so I had all the historical information at my disposal. For the first time, I also added all this data in the rule book explaining the mechanisms of the game.

September 2017 - The games finally begin to arrive Europe. The USA feedback was positive. Let's hope the same for EU.

Kanban is possibly my favorite of my games to date (dividing the title with Lisboa, right now), and probably my heaviest one.
I'm very proud of the creative Sandra mechanism, and how well oiled machine the mechanisms end up in the game. All stuff is connected. You need to plan well to succeed in kanban. I believe it can reach more people if I convince the publisher to let Ian O'Toole create a new version with his art.
This game was also the one responsible for meeting Paul Incao, my primary developer and the guy who's been working with me in the development of all games after this one.

This big box game is a reprint with new art from the first edition and also brings a new simplified version designed to bring more people to play my first game. Inside the KS box and available as expansions you can also find a couple of new regions, a lot of new expert tiles and a small crazy weather tile that I designed to the first edition but never made into the box. With this title, your production stops in that year.

To me, Nippon is the best game from Leiria team. Having some innovative and very implemented ideas like the worker's displacement, and the area control with tile replacement taking from Brass, one of my favorite games, makes this one a new breath on the genre.
One of the best in the What's Your Game line of heavy and great games.

Madeira is considered one of the heaviest games out there. Winner of the first Heavy Cardboard awards, Madeira was the first game from Paulo and Nuno, 2 of the most successful designers in Portugal. They are brothers in law and they always work together and always on the heavy side of board gaming.
Madeira is also the 3rd game of the heavy game's series published by What's Your Game, after Vasco da Gama and Vinhos. It has the distinctive mark of Mariano Iannelli artwork.
I think it's also the designer's favorite game from the ones they created.
The game is one of the heaviest ever made and did have a great reception by the heavier game crowd.

CO2 is my second game and the least accepted one. It took me about 6 months of research before I placed it on the table for playtesting. A few years later, during Leiria Con, I had my highest point in my short life as a designer. A playtesting session with Paulo Soledade, Mac Gerdts and Martin Wallace. This session made me rewind and remake all the game design during the following couple of months. The concept and core still remain, but that playtesting session made me realize how the minds of some of the best designers in the world work. In a single session, I found and fix a ton of problems in this design.
Unfortunately, the rulebook had some big problems and the game didn't reach a big audience. Right now, 5 years later, I'm developing a cooperative version of the same game with a totally new rulebook that I expected to have a wider broadcast.

I playtested Panamax, around 2012 and since then the game suffered great improvements. At the time, the game lack of some original mechanisms created and included later during the developing in the years before release. I know Paul Incao was also involved in the developing of the game.
The dice mechanisms are very cool, and the movement and theme implementation is also very well done.

Last game from Gil and MesaBoardgames. Dice Tower recommended Viral for its Essentials' line.
Based on an original theme about infecting the human body, the game is a fierce area control that is getting a lot of prize from many reviewers.
Let us watch it climb on this list, and hope this game could be the first Gil's Spiel de Jahre nominee.

Considered by many the best game from Gil, Estoril 1944 is a partnership with António Sousa Lara and tells the story of spies during the second great war in a villa next Lisbon. Cascais.

presenting the art of the magnificent Mihajlo Dimitrievski, City of Spies is a smart game filled with surprises, where players try to be the most powerful and influential secret Organization.
Once again Gil develops this game around Portuguese history.

This game is a born child from Arcadia Lusitania and the first published game from Manuel that I playtested. The game took awhile to be ready and chosen by a publisher. It went back and forward for many years, but everybody knew that sooner or later Manuel would publish it. It is the first game from a designer that deserves to be followed.
The game ends up to be a fairly nice and fun card game, but because the action system is so innovative and original, my opinion is that it deserves to be the core of a bigger and more epic game.

Dilluvia Project, along with The Gallerist was a game heavily playtested in a Portuguese Design group called Arcádia Lusitania. And was a pleasure to do it. Unfortunately, the group no longer exists but felt good that at least 3 prototypes playtested by that group are published, available on the market and standing a position in BGG Ranking.
Alexandre Garcia did a great job designing this game. It had a different theme by then, but the mechanics and the core of the published game did not change much and remain almost the same. I think this is the heaviest game from Alexandre and published by one of the publishers with some of the heaviest games in the market. The funny part is that he always thought my games were too heavy and he wanted to publish much lighter games.

A solitaire official reimplementation of Agent Decker based on the independent FPS released on Steam and Xbox One.
Manuel Correia is a video game designer, so following this kind of path with tabletop games seems something natural for him.

This game seems to escalate really fast on the BGG ratings. Let's see where it ends up.

A self-published Solitaire Game from the youngest Portuguese designer Manuel Correia. This game was re-implemented as Super Hot the card game, that can also be found on this list.
I secretly know Manuel is looking for a publisher to publish this game as it was primarily designed. Unfortunately, I did not try it yet. I will update this entry as soon as I do.
The art of this game joins two big talents: the designer itself and his lifemate Sara Mena.

For same the best game from Gil D'Orey. With a fantasy theme, the first on Gil's portfolio, filled with Angels and Demons (or dark Angels), the game features an interesting movement mechanism ruled by the roll of dice.

This is Rui Alípio first born and the jewel of his crown. He and his wife, Maria Luísa Monteiro are on a quest to make this game really known, by promoting it as they can, with tournements, jewlery, furniture, and fashion events. The "modern Chess" is how Alípio likes to call it.

Lixo is a small family cardgame about recycling garbage. Gil told me once that the game sold very well in Japan.

Aljubarrota tells the story of a very known battle in Portugal during the XIV century between Portuguese and English troops against castellan army. This battle ends up with the defeat of the Castellan army and a few stories born around this episode. One of the funniest is about a women baker that defeat two Castelan soldiers by throwing them into her oven.
This was probably the first Portuguese game to be published in the new era of the euro games. Gil had it done. Unfortunately, the publisher closed the company a year after, and the game never had a world release. You can find it on Portuguese supermarkets.

This is a small card game released by a group of Portuguese professors. The idea behind it is a satire about the years in which Portugal had the intervention from FMI, European Commission and the Central European Bank controlling the government finances, economy and politics. The intervention name was Troika.
Since the theme is mostly aimed at the Portuguese public, its position on BGG was never very high.

Água (Portuguese for water) was a Gil D'Orey attempt to make a didactic game which targets schools and could teach kids the water cycle.
A very simple game, with really simple mechanisms. Probably too simple.

With the same theme of Caravelas, this sequel addresses to an audience of younger kids. The game plays faster and has easy rules than its predecessor.
Caravelas II jumped on the ratings really fast after its release. Like it's big brother can be found in supermarkets and is a great sales success in Portugal.
