After nearly a decade, Portal games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring back Prêt-à-Porter by Ignacy Trzewiczek, an economic euro game set in the fashion industry which received the Dice Tower Seal of Excellence. This edition features some rules, design, and component updates, as well as artwork by Kwanchai Moriya (Dinosaur Island, Cryptid, and Kodama: The Tree Spirits).
Prêt-à-Porter is a worker placement game in which players use three player pawns to perform actions, including signing new Contracts, building new Buildings, hiring new Employees, buying fabric and materials, and arranging finances at the bank. Ultimately, however, the game revolves around international fashion shows. During Show rounds, players present their Collections in hopes of gaining awards in four different feature categories.
Some rules changes in this edition include an advanced player order variant, longer-lasting contract cards, a refreshed victory point system, the threat of bankruptcy, and starting design cards for variable setup. Component updates include a larger board, bigger tokens, custom wooden pieces in place of wooden cubes, and wooden rather than cardboard tokens for the round tracker and upkeep costs.
