A worthy game for the innovative turn-sequence system alone - and there's more. The game also combines the "multiple paths to victory" as in Princes of Florence, and the "break normal game rules" aspect of some CCGs (or Cosmic Encounter, Ursuppe/Urland etc.) in the form of purple building functions. (And yes, the buildings can be very powerful.) And yet the balance between the various game elements (building costs etc.) seems to be just right, so that there is no single obvious winning strategy (at least it seems so) nor elements which become useless because they're too weak. A most excellent, finely-crafted game. Perhaps the best of 2002, my bet for DSP winner.

Similar in feel and pace to Princes of Florence. Many options to score victory points and this makes the game replayable. Less direct interaction - more interaction by choice of the roles. Excellent game that will be popular with Princes of Florence fans.

Great game. The rules aren't complex, but the game is very indepth. I think the player chosen turn sequence is a very, very good aspect of the game.

NO matter how many you play with, puerto rico is one of the best games I have seen. Usually feel as if you might be winning through the entire game, and even if you aren't, there is enough to do that you don't get bored hoping the game just ends.

Best game ever played! Great balance, awesome mechanics, good theme, lotsa ways to win and countermeasures, learnable in 10 minutes but sooo deep. The perfect resource management game. A gamer's game--yet all my smart friends love its depth and perfect balance. All the hyperbolic praise this game gets is totally earned. Play it! Buy it!

Definitely deserving of the award. After having played this game many times I've come to enjoy it even more. If you're looking for a game in which the mechanics are complex enough for a 'gamer' yet not mind numbingly so, all players are constantly involved, luck plays only a very small part, the successful strategies are many and varied, the backstabbing is veiled yet decisive, and most games end with even casual players wanting 'another go', then look no further than Puerto Rico.

There is a one-time reading/discussion of the rules which lasts about an hour due to the manual being long and poorly written (english). After the rules are understood, the game is awesome! One of the favorites of our gaming circle.
gaming circle regards it as one of our favorites

This game has a tremendous amount of charm while you're in the process of learning all its ins and outs, and it is standing up brilliantly to an unprecedented number of repeated playings. It's great how all the small decisions add up to such a rich variety of sequences of events. Ride the tide of opportunity.

This is by far the best game I have played in a very long time, if by a long time I mean ever. Although I own other great games, this one was so well designed and thought out that it has no luck value involved at all. Like chess you have to think about your opponent's moves and what will help you most while not helping your opponent. A fantastic game that will be played many times.

Overall Score 10, Appearence 9, Components 9, The Box (storage) 9, Rulebook 9, Ease of Play 8, Mechanics 10, Involvment 10, Replayability 10, Uniqueness 10, Luck 0 v Strategy 10 (The higher the number the more it leans that way.)

An amazing game with trememdous depth, especially for a German game. Has unique game mechanics as well. Bound to be a classic.
