Lisboa Deluxe Edition
1 – 4 Players, 60 – 120 Minutes playing time, Ages 12 and up. Compete to reconstruct the city of Lisboa after the great earthquake of 1755. Lisboa scores in the 8’s on Board Game Geek and is comfortably ranked in the Top 50 strategy board games. Players really appreciate the variable setup and scalability and the components are amazing – as a deluxe version of a game by Vital Lacerda tends to be. There are so many moving parts that all interlock so perfectly – where skill, experience, and thoughtful play will significantly reward the player. Like many heavy Euro games, it takes some investment to learn the game and it tips toward the heavier complexity. However, after a few games players really start to feel the synergy! Solo players will find another great one here, again – most if not all Lacerda games have an excellent solo mode. It’s almost like you’re playing the game against designer Vital Lacerda himself. Manufacturer: Eagle-Gryphon Games. Categories: City Building, Economic, Industry / Manufacturing, and Political. Game Mechanics: Area Majority / Influence, Card Drafting, Hand Management, and Tile Placement.

How to Play:
Lisboa is a game about the reconstruction of the great Portuguese capital city after a series of terrible catastrophes. On November 1, 1755, Lisboa suffered an earthquake of an estimated magnitude of 8.5–9.0, followed by a devastating tsunami and 3 days of raging fires. The city was almost totally destroyed.
Lisboa is thus played, in part, on a representational map of the city. During the planning of the downtown re-building project, the type of businesses permitted in each street was pre-determined. The clockmakers and goldsmiths had their street; as did the bookstores and libraries; the tailors and silk vendors; and the toolmakers as well. This all comes into play on the Lisboa gameboard.
Players represent the nobility of Lisboa who will use their influence in the reconstruction and business development of the new city.
In rebuilding the city, players will make use of the Royal Builder, who works with the architects to build Lisboa anew, while the Marquis will provide aid in the development of commerce. The King will provide players with political help in re-opening the beautiful new city. But the true reason you are rebuilding the city is not for greatness, or even fame or fortune. As a nobleman or noblewoman of Lisboa, your primary motivation is the acquisition of Wigs–a most important trading commodity of the Era, and the means of scoring points in the game.
