Following the development of Brasil we, designers and publisher, decided to use Kickstarter to produce it.

The main reason for this to happen is related to production values. As the development progressed during these past couple of years, the once called Vila Rica transformed itself into a bigger game named Brasil. In order to pay justice to it, all of the components and some of its now ‘epic characteristics’ were calling for a general improvement of the normal production elements.

We want to introduce a bigger game, with better components but still at a reasonable price. You fans have been terrific in all the support provided in the past and we’re positive sure that you will again this time.

The date for the campaign's start is not yet decided but it will happen during 2017. For all of those who were waiting for the game to be published in Essen next October, we’re sorry to disappoint your expectations but we’re also sure that the final result will pay off. With dividends!

Thank you all for the amazing support.

Paulo and Nuno

Wow. So difficult to keep up with all these new board games. Might need to sell some blood plasma...

I'm really curious what the price point will be. A lot of these huge, deluxified Euros are pricing me out of the market (especially those from another, unnamed Portuguese designer). I'm sure y'all can't say anything now, so I suppose I will just have to wait and see.

Checkout the Heavycardboard conversations from last night with P&N on Youtube. They stated the price will be reasonable. Maybe even more if Paulo was willing to give up a little more fee.....but he wasn't sure yet laugh

That's the plan, Morten. We will take the game for play in Essen depending on how far ahead are the illustrations at the time. And it will be a pleasure to have you there. Thanks!

Publisher's ideas of reasonable and my idea are diverging quickly.

Or Essen pickup. Quined, Phalanx and others are already doing that.

I don't that will happen. My understanding is they are shooting for Q2 2018 release so I don't think it is reasonable to offer Essen pick for a game that ought to be released well before Essen.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Given this deviation, does this still fit with previous comments about keeping it's own interesting art style rather than WYG using the same bland art they usually do?

Bigger game, with more elements than before. It's not more complex.

How long will the play time be? I love Madeira, but as it takes a while to play, it hardly hits the table.

Hoping Brasil will fit the 2-3 hours play time with 4 new players.

Madeira has a pretty average play time I find, it's no Through the Ages etc.
