Narcos: The Board Game is designed by Fel Barros (known for The World of SMOG: Rise of Moloch), and Renato Silva Sasdelli (known for Mafia). The series most powerful characters and factions are represented by 2-5 players who rewrite the story behind the rise and fall of El Patrón. One person acts as El Patrón, managing a growing narcotics empire while trying to keep their location on the board a secret. The remaining players lead the hunter factions such as the D.E.A., Policía Nacional de Colombia, Cali Cartel, and the guerrilla extremist group. The separate factions work together to find El Patrón and win if they find him. El Patrón wins if he is able to evade the hunters and fulfill his secret objectives.
