Take on the role of one of the great monarchs of the past, and show your valor!
In Brazil: Imperial, you need to construct buildings, manage resources, explore the land, create trade, acquire the support of the greatest personalities of the country, and recruit a powerful army to protect your interests against rival states. If you make the right choices, you can complete missions to progress to a more advanced era, unlocking new options for development as well as victory points. In the end, the best monarch will receive the title of Brazilian Emperor and be credited with constructing a new era of prosperity, freedom, and peace!
While playing on a modular map of real regions, you'll use a combination of worker placement, area majority, and individual powers to construct an empire in Brazil between the 16th and 19th centuries. You start by choosing one of the available monarchs and its personal game board and components; some monarchs are strong in combat, while others prioritize science or exploration. You'll advance to a new era when you complete tasks. On each turn, you'll complete an action phase and a movement phase. The game ends when a player completes three "eras," at which point you'll tally your scores to determine the winner.
All maps are different and created with modular boards that recreate real regions of Brazil and the world. Each game you can focus on resource management, combat, or a combination of both, depending on your choice of monarch and the interaction with other players.
