WizKids Announces Favelas Board Game

The beautiful and iconic Favelas of Rio De Janeiro need your help. The Beautification Council needs you to make these neighborhoods more stunning. But the council members are fickle and prone to changing their mind about what they like. Currying their favor and making the right decisions is key to coming out on top. And that's just what you'll be doing in Favelas, a new tile-laying game announced by WizKids.

From the announcement:

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Favelas, a fast moving Euro style game, designed by Christopher Bryan, coming to North American retail this October.

In Favelas, 2 – 4 players are in the running to oversee the beautification of the iconic Favelas of Rio de Janeiro. These neighborhoods, highly-stacked and ever-evolving, face many socio-economic challenges, but have benefitted greatly from recent beautification and growing artist communities.

The bad new is that the council who will approve the funding is fickle and constantly returning with different suggestions that alter the value of the colors used in the beautification.

If you win the council’s favor it will all be worth it, but it will require a lot of careful consideration. Over three rounds (years), players will collect Victory Points by building different colored Favelas on their Player Boards. Each color has a different point value as dictated by the Beautification Council Guidelines. Collect the most Victory Points to win the game!

Bring the colorful iconic neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro to your friendly local games store with Favelas. Pre-order a copy today for MSRP: $34.99.
