This is the game that 'does it for me'. I am a late comer to board gaming and this is the one that reel me in. I love this game.

I just traded this game away for Race For the Galaxy. My wife and I were looking for something a little deeper while the owner of RFTG was looking for something a little lighter.

Neither of us have had our new games to the table yet so I'm looking forward to giving RFTG a go.

This game comprises the best elements of Puerto Rico into a compact format that allows for serious PR strategy with a very low investment of time.

The best themed card game there is and the quality of the cards is 2nd to none. 68 plays with my copy of the game, and it's holding up very well. Sold it to a game group friend when I obtained the 2nd Edition.

I like Puerto Rico, but it's not my favorite. I bought San Juan mostly because it was rated so high, but frankly hadn't gotten it on the table because I figured it was going to be as "thick" as Puerto Rico. Now, after a bunch of plays, I have to admit that I was very wrong. It has many of the brilliant aspects of PR, but it's much more streamlined and fast. It's quite easy to explain the rules and start right in. In fact, I think I prefer SJ because of the ease of play. This is a really good card game that feels like a full-on boardgame.

Good 1-hour game or 15 minutes on BSW to avoid card handling.

Another great cardgame. Not trick-taking, so I liked it. Plenty of options for all. Kinda luck-dependant for some parts, but it is expected in a card game of this type.

Why this is not in the collection anymore: Not a bad game at all, but after Roll for the Galaxy there was really no reason to play this.

Very good card game. Plays well with two players. For newer gamers, I highly recommend learning this prior to playing Puerto Rico or Race for the Galaxy because it makes learning those games a lot easier. Plus it's good to have when you're in the mood for something a bit lighter and quicker than Puerto Rico or Race.

Sold, got the second edition.

iPad version: San Juan is very fun with any amount of players, which I find to be a very rare quality in a game. I love how the cards that score victory points or get more cards into your hand are also the currency used to be able to play the cards to the table; creating some difficult choices and risk. The selecting of professions in each round also adds strategies used to limit the amount of cards your opponents can get or play. These mechanics add up to some tense rounds and a great game.

Wonderful adaptation of the immensly popular Puerto Rico boardgame. Yet, it's very much a "stand alone" with its own merits. Similar theme & mechanics, but the gameplay is quite different. San Juan also brings more value to the prospector role. Quick, fun, and one of the best of its kind! Grade: B+

This fast clever game is one of the quickest (25 mins per game) ways for me to quench my thirst for strategy. As an added bonus, my wife loves it!

9.9.10 Update: Been playing this again recently... still holding strong.

This game is awesome. For me, it packs all the fun of Puerto Rico into a shorter, simpler game! The more I play it, the more I like it.

Cambiado a Wend1g0 de la bsk en sep10 por el Caylus Magna Carta.
Adaptación estupenda del juego Puerto Rico para disfrutar igual con sólo 110 cartas. Las cartas lo son todo: edificios para construir, mercancías para vender y dinero para pagar. El espíritu del juego ha quedado intacto, pero el sistema (y el tiempo de juego) ha disminuido notablemente. Es una gran adquisición.
Gana el que más puntos acumule al final de la partida, que sucede en cuanto alguien construye su decimosegundo edificio.

Vendido por 12€ en un pack a christianlafferla de la BSK, en Mayo 2014
