In 1493 Christopher Columbus discovered the eastern-most island of the Great Antilles. About 50 years later, Puerto Rico began to really blossom -- through you! Which roles will you play in this new world: Prospector? Governor? Settler? Trader? Whatever you do, you have one goal: to achieve the greatest prosperity and highest reputation! Who will have the most fruitful plantation? Who will build the most impressive buildings? And, who will earn the most victory points?

My all time favourite, even after 100 games of it
April 21, 2004

A great gamers game that requires some thought each time you move, without becoming too bogged down by analysis paralysis. So many options every time you play, just when you think you have the best strategy all worked out, someone else will show you why it doesn't work..! About the only criticism I have is that there are a couple of buildings in the game that really aren't worth using; replacing them or reducing their prices would add a few more possibilities.

A real gamer's game

The game is well balanced as local trading and/or shipping may be compromised. Many ways to win even without the harbor. Unlike most games, you are not able to plan more than 2-3 turns ahead making it very challenging at times. Avoid the university unless you are in a 5 player game (or even 4). One great feature is that it only takes about 2 games to get the concept, and another 2 to observe and develop basic strategies. Our normal game times are 45 min for a 3 player, 60-70 min for a 4 player, and about 80-90 min for a 5 player game.

Best Game Ever....
February 17, 2004

There is so many roles to choose from but which will benefit yourself most and hurt the rest. So many strategies but not one is a sure-win formula. All this elements are found in Puerto Rico. There has been so many reviews written about this game, I don't think I need to elaborate further. Try the game once, and you will understand what I mean. It is simply addictive and fun.
