Product 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. He will win the game!

From the Manufacturer

The most critically acclaimed board game of the last twenty years, Puerto Rico continues to wow people with its brilliant mechanics. Each player utilizes different roles -mayor, captain, settler, trader, prospector, craftsman, or builder to score the most victory points with their colony. Players can act on every turn of the game, allowing them to choose between shipping goods for points or building an impressive city. Players must manage their colonists, erect a variety of buildings, build up their plantation, and sell or ship goods. With dozens of options, Puerto Rico is a streamlined game that can be played in about an hour and handles up to five players.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I love playing this game with friends.

This role ends up being VERY strategic, as you can end up getting a bunch of victory points AND forcing your opponents to destroy their produced goods for no benefit!
Matt Knutson
Learning will be very easy this way and you will be playing without the rules in by the middle of the first game.

Winner of an International Gamers Award in the General Strategy category for 2003.

Chosen Best Strategy game in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands and USA

Winner of the Golden Feather for the best game rules.

THIS GAME ROCKS!!!

I am a game collector and have played them all. Honestly this game is by far the best game I have ever played. My friends and I are literally addicted to it. Having NO DICE at all means 100% strategy and ZERO LUCK. You have to make the right decisions or you WILL lose. The best part is that you will not find a winning pattern on this game. The strategy used to win in one game will be useless once your friends catch up on it. This means each time you play it will be different.

Here is a raw description of this great game.

Each player has a small board with city and land spaces to build on. You start with one plantation and a small amount of money. Each player in turns will chose a role according to their strategy. These roles will allow you to create more plantations, build structures in your city that will help you according to your strategy (e.g. warehouse, office, factory, harbor, etc), bring in workers for your crops and buildings, produce goods, and sell or export those goods in exchange for money or victory points. You have to choose these roles carefully since they will also make or break your opponents.

Each building you chose to purchase will give you an advantage and will cost differently. The most expensive building will give bonuses at game end. So you must choose how to spend your hard earned money wisely. The crops you chose to build also work differently.

Puerto Rico is the best all around board game i have ever played. The balance i would say is near perfection and of all the games I've played the score was always very close.

While this game out of the box takes a little while to understand the nuances of the rules and how to take advantage of the different roles, it's very worthwhile and rewarding. After two plays, my friends were all very into it and anxious to play again.

The fifty foot view of the game looks something like this. Everyone has a board that has an area for placing plantations and city area for buildings. Plantations grow crops, you need certain buildings to produce/store the crops which go in the city area and you eventually want to ship those crops(back to the mainland...whateva) and that's how you ultimately score points. There are variety of different crops you can grow and different types of buildings which give different type of advantages(and are worth a certain # of victory points). Each person takes a turn and on their turn chooses a certain role which is how the game functions. Each role offers different functions/phases of the game, ie building where everyone gets to build a building, or captain where you get to ship your goods....the player choosing the phase typically gets and additional bonus which is where a lot of the strategy revolves around.

Some of the things i like about Puerto Rico, are that you really don't know who's going to win until the game ends and the points are counted up. This keeps everyone interested and playing intently throughout. You also have to be alert on each turn and take advantage of other players moves in order be successful.

This is an excellent game I would have to say its only flaw, and it is a pretty big one, is that you have to have 3 people to play it. There is a 2-5 player edition available on here Amazon (ASIN B005Q5TNB6) that includes the official 2 player rule variant so that you don't need the 3rd player. The 2 player rules play very well. My wife and I have spent hours playing this game which has made us even better players when we are able to play in large groups.

Playing this game is a blast! Unlike games like Settlers of Cataan, there is very little randomness (no dice needed). And yet, it's never the same twice. Players take turn choosing roles. Those roles either produce goods, sell goods for money, build structures, or ship goods for points. The chossing the role affects all players, but the chooser gets an advantage for that role. The choice of roles goes around the board, the role cards get replaced, and then the next person gets first choice.

As the turns go, you develop crops, build structures that give you a strategic advantage, move people to buildings or to work crops. At the end of play you add up the points (not the money) to determine who wins.

What makes it especially odd is that there is no direct trading with other players, and yet your choice of role can either help or hurt other players. Choosing carefully to not favor other players while making progress yourself is where the challenge of the game lies.

Definitely takes a play through to learn all the rules, but very fun after that.
