Hey folks

Was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for games set in Brazil. I would be interested in games that are more than just a map of Brazil (like Power Grid map of Brazil). A game with some theme would be good, similar to Andean Abyss or other war game type...

Any help is appreciated... Thanks!!

Those are the ones that are now in the family Country: Brazil.
Note that it is very likely that there are games that belong there who are being left out -- some human being made this list, with all the possibilities for human error built in.

But gives you a place to start ...

Operacao Littorio is a rare oddity about a military conflict in Brasil and the surrounding area.

Probably difficult to acquire.

My favorite is Amazonas - despite most village names being in Spanish instead of Portuguese.

Yeah this would be up the alley of what I'd be looking for but pretty obscure indeed.

Julio Trois has designed some South-American themed games, mst of them are PnP.

One to consider: Vera Cruz.

Favelas does look really beautiful, but I just can't get over the name. To me, favela has the connotation of a slum and that just seems out of place with the cute, colorful tiles.
