Here’s my first published board game. It’s an adventure game based on ethnographic research about smuggling on the eastern border of Northern Portugal, during Salazar’s dictatorship.
Night is falling. Amidst the silence and shadows of the villages, men and women leave their homes with suspicious bags. Walking for hours and hours, they cross mounts and valleys, smuggling merchandise to Spain. But the portuguese border force officers know the paths and are always on the lookout for the nightly adventurers. This game, based on the heritage of Territórios do Côa relives the smuggling stories from the period of the portuguese dictatorship.”
