Over at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/28253, it was suggested that a list of the lowest ranked game people prefer to Puerto Rico would also be interesting.

So - how far down the rankings can you go and still find a game you prefer to Puerto Rico?

Not sure my selection counts as it used to be rated higher than Puerto Rico.

So it's Whist with a pirate theme and a dastardly board! Played this a couple of times with friends and it could easily become a fun opening salvo to a day's gaming!

If it's not this at #3098 then it's definitely UpWords at #2252. Every time I see UpWords in the shop I think "I could buy that and we could play it", but then I remember I already have 3 copies and just get depressed that I rarely play it. Puerto Rico doesn't really engage me like word games, because there sometimes seems to be little you can do to dramatically improve your position, and there doesn't seem to be many opportunities for great moves. Puerto Rico has room for great strategies, but maybe not so much for great moves.

I also thought about Checkers at #4167, but I don't really understand it well enough to know when I've made a great move.

hard to believe but true.
It took awhile to find the lowest.

basically I asked my self, "self, I want to play a game with you, would you rather play puerto rico or _______"
and I had my first winner at Risk.

There are dozens of games I prefer to Puerto Rico and quite a few of those rank in the 2000s, some even in the 3000s. This is the lowest ranking, I think. I rate it an 8. It's a nice space exploration and empire building game and one of the most extreme dicefests I know.

The lowest ranking game I prefer to Puerto Rico, is the Killer Bunnies, I know it's not a favorite of BGG, but our group, and myself, just have so much fun with it.

But if unranked would count, than Emmerlaus would be the one.

Well, I LOVE Puerto Rico and I rank it a 9. Only a small handful of games rank higher than that for me. Deduce or Die is an awesome deduction game that I'll play over Puerto Rico and that's ranked 1335. But the real winner is Latin American Competitive Partnership Dominoes - as played by most Puerto Ricans (Heh!). Ranked a sad 3583 due to people playing inferior domino games and rating those.

For many moons, I've had this at rating 8 and PR at 7.

(That's even my pic.)

Edit: Some other "low ranked" things I prefer to PR...
9: Elfenland (current rank 288)
8: Ark (719)
8: Take Stock (1502)
8: Fearsome Floors (302)
8: Niagara (349)
8: Pick Picknic (483)
8: Kahuna (335)
8: Pictionary (1959)

There are more in my "7" rated games as well that would nudge out PR going head to head.

I adore this game! I rated PR at an 8.5. Pass the Pigs gets an unmitigated 10 in our house - and a 5.21 on BGG. My 10 for Pigs reflects the time we spend having fun with this little gem. We've logged 88 games to date.

It's a great little filler, that we pull out in restaurants, pubs, the airport - anyplace we're waiting. It never fails to attract interest - which gives us the chance to introduce people to gaming and mention the community and resources here at BGG!

The games I've rated a 10 that have a lower BGG rating than Puerto Rico are:

Pass the Pigs
Hive
Heroscape
Crokinole
Acquire

Of course I play it the strategic way; holding cards in your hand, draw a card, select a card, play a card. It makes it a much better game.

I enjoy Puerto Rico, but this is a fun little game that is fast and has lots of player interaction.

I am one of the seemingly few people who don't enjoy Puerto Rico much at all... however, I'm always up for this classic from my childhood.
