The Favelas in Rio de Jeneiro could use a bit of sprucing up. However, like many things involving government committees, the city council keeps changing their minds about how, exactly, they want these neighborhoods to look. That’s what’s happening in Favelas, a new tile-laying game available now from WizKids. Players must work through the council’s desires while laying down their tiles in the hopes of satisfying their desires. In the end, one player will win the council’s favor and be declared the winner.
From the announcement:
Favelas is a tile laying game about the beautification of the iconic Favelas of Rio de Janeiro! These stacked and everevolving neighborhoods are home to many people who stand to benefit greatly from this infusion of money, modernization and beauty.
The bad news is that the council who will approve the funding is fickle and constantly coming back with notes which alter the value of the colors that are used in this beautification.
Played in 3 rounds, this fast moving Euro style game will keep people watching for the majorities their opponents are going for – and which colors are being devalued or not.
