In the 17th century, sugarcane plantations dominated the Brazilian coastline. Slaves working there often rebelled and ran away to their most famous refuge: Palmares

As leaders of the many Palmares villages, players have 5 actions available to secretly deploy their villagers: gather food, raid farms, pray to the Orishas and so on. Whoever allocate the most villagers in each action can do it with added benefits.

Besides that, players need to cooperate to resist the constant attacks of the Portuguese.
