After a few tests taken these last couple of weeks we, the designers and the publisher, have decided to postpone the release of Madeira. 

The bad news for us and for all of you that are interested in getting the game in the table, is that we have to wait a bit longer. The good news, really, really good news, is that the game will become even better than it is now. We've 'discovered' a better way to make the game and those last weeks served, mainly, to test those changes. The problem here, as you may all understand, is related to major changes that are only possible with massive playtest. We have no time to release a new version in such short notice but we believe it's for the best to wait for it.

Madeira Pearl of the Atlantic will be officially presented next year at Nuremberg.

Thank you all for your interest and support. Many of you are an important part of what we're making here.

Paulo Soledade and Nuno Sentieiro

PS: we will be in Essen. If you want for any reason contact us, ask about the game or anything, please do. We're the guys using a black polo shirt with the SPIELPORTUGAL logo.

I understand the mixed feelings you must be dealing with.
Brave decision I guess.

That's really a mixture of feelings: I was gladly looking forward to buy a copy at Spiel Essen, but now that's no longer possible...
But knowing that in the nearby future I'll be able to buy a better game, that makes the miss at Essen a little bit more to bare...

Keep up the good work - I'll be waiting for the release!

Same here. It will be for the best, you'll see. I know exactly how you feel, but if the game greatly improves, also your reputation will improve.

No worry's...things will work out. and before you know it the game is in the shops and everything you longed for so long is over.
The road to our game took 5 years. and everytime it was delayed, it felt like a hammer on the head. But suddenly you are there at Essen or another fair, and the release of your first game is a nice memory. .

So enjoy every moment of the road too.

I'm looking forward to thisone, and will certainly give it a try.

Good luck to you guys !!!
