Product Description

Product Description

The players are plantation owners in Puerto Rico in the days when ships had sails. Growing up to five different kind of crops: Corn, Indigo, Coffee, Sugar and Tobacco, they must try to run their business more efficiently than their close competitors; growing crops and storing them efficiently, developing San Juan with useful buildings, deploying their colonists to best effect, selling crops at the right time, and most importantly, shipping their goods back to Europe for maximum benefit. A novel game system lets players choose the order of the phases in each turn by allowing each player to choose a role from those remaining when it is their turn. No role can be selected twice in the same round. The player who selects the best roles to advance their position during the game will win.

Manufacturer's Description

Prospector, captain, mayor, trader, settler, craftsman, or builder? Which roles will you play in the new world? Will you own the most prosperous plantations? Will you build the most valuable buildings? You have but one goal: achieve the greatest prosperity and highest respect! This is shown by the player who earns the most victory points?

Puerto Rico is an excellent game. It is one of those games in which luck has been reduced to the minimum and skill is all important. Luckily the game is so much fun and so interesting that you will play the game again and again and during the course of these games you will refine your skill. It is interesting becasue as you gain more experience at the game and your skill level increases, new strategies occur to you and so the game kind of constantly evolves within your playgroup.

You can play with 3 to 5 players. I have played ten 3-player games and five 4-player games, no 5-player games yet. I have found the 3 and 4 player games have slightly different dynamics, which again makes the game have very good replayabiliy.

If you like games such as civilization, settlers of catan, carcasonne and ticket to ride then I am fairly sure you will love this game.

If I could award this game 4.5 stars, I would. It is a staggeringly well designed, thoroughly thought out and superbly executed game. That said, it's not one that I take off the shelf all that often.

There is very little luck in Puerto Rico and because of that there are cetrainly 'best' plays to make in any given situation. The more you play the better you get at discerning the best option to take, and that's where the problem lies for me. I would hesitate to label this a family game and I certainly wouldn't like to play with anyone under 12 years old as seating order and skewed player ability can have a huge effect on the outcome. Playing this game with those that have a played a lot before can be a dispiriting experience and it would appeal to those who want to strive to play it as best as they can. I know some who level the criticism that it is 'recreational accountancy' and whilst I can see why it would be considered dry, that is still a bit harsh.

To give it five stars would be to suggest this is a perfect game and it isn't. Although with four or five well matched players around the board, it certainly gets very close.

We love board games in our family and we like civilisation-building games such as Settlers of Catan where you collect resources to expand your empire. Catan has a weakness though which is that you can only collect resources if the right numbers come up on the dice - in other words luck is the main factor that determines the outcome. Puerto Rico is in the same genre but it is cleverly designed so that no dice are involved.

In a nutshell the aim is to earn victory points by establishing plantations and attracting a workforce, thereby allowing you to produce lots of goods (eg corn, coffee, sugar) which you then sell or trade. Each turn consists of every player choosing a job (Mayor, Settler, Trader etc) which allows players to start plantations, attract workers, trade goods and so on. Everyone is involved in every turn so there is no sitting around doing nothing while you wait for your number to come up on the dice. There are numerous strategies you can use to accumulate victory points - build the most buildings, have the most plantations, load the most goods onto ships etc.

Lots of thing happen in a single turn and this makes the rules quite complex. In fact the first time we played we probably spent an hour just working out how to get started. But once you know the rules, it's really quite quick to play (about 45 minutes). It's a really ingenious game and great fun - highly recommended.

Puerto Rico is a family boardgame of a similar ilk to the Catan series. Players build and trade in order to gain victory points to win the game. We are all in agreement that this is the best boardgame we've played so far. There is little in the way of chance in the game (no die-rolling) but the game remains unpredictable and challenging with many different ways to victory.

Absolutely brill!

Bought this game recently on a recommendation from a friend, having played it once years before.

It was just as good as I remember. It's one of those games where the rules initially seem very complicated. But, as soon as you get through the first couple of rounds the rules become straightforward and everything clicks in your head. Don't let that fool you though - just because the rules are simple doesn't mean the game is. There are several different strategies one can adopt in order to outfox one's opponents and the game has great replayability value for precisely this reason. Everyone plays the game differently and because of that you have to play the game difficulty

It's not perfect though - there are a few criticisms. Firstly, this is a game of gathering and manipulating scarce resources and so there are few ways to directly interact with other players, other than taking the resources they wanted. Secondly, it's not a classical family boardgame - some new players may be intimidated by the initial rules. You have to play a round or two in order to understand them fully. Thirdly, there are some small caveats to the rules so for the first few plays it's important to keep the rulebook handy - for example, one can only build one type of each building. These quirks are necessary for game balance.

Overall, it's a very good game with excellent replayability but it does need a little patience in the first few rounds. Would recommend it.
