I feel like I've played a lot of San Juan, but it's so free-flowing and intuitive that it hardly ever feels over-played. It also scales excellently to 2-4 players in a way that Puerto Rico never really did.

Better than Race For the Galaxy, but still not great.

Γερμανική έκδοση, έχει λίγο κείμενο στις κάρτες, σαν καινούργιο έχει ανοιχτεί απλά η ζελατίνα δεν έχει παιχτεί ποτέ. Η "προσομοίωση" του θρυλικού Puerto Rico. Αν δεν έχετε το άλλο, μπορείτε να πάρετε εξίσου αυτό.

Games played: 11
Game type: Engine-building
Other games like it: Race for the Galaxy
San Juan is a fun game, based on the extremely popular and well-known board game, Puerto Rico. Each turn, you and your opponents choose roles which determine what actions all players get to take for the round. The goal is to build the correct array of buildings to score more points than your opponents. San Juan is a fine game, though I prefer the far more complicated but oddly similar game Race for the Galaxy. This game gets the WBC bump too: 4/11 plays at WBC. At WBC, this game is exclusively played 2-player, but my non-WBC plays are mostly 4-player. I enjoy the game in both circumstances, but it is a dramatically different game with 2.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Level of Interest:

As a huge fan of Puerto Rico and Roll for the Galaxy and a passing fan of Race for the Galaxy, I find it odd that I have never played San Juan.

Probably time to get that fixed!

Plays = 16

Is this my favorite card game today? I think so. I wish I could play it more often with 3 or 4, but it is a very good game with 2 also. When I was looking for "next games" after For Sale, this one was on the list, and I would say it is the most successful.

I tried to replace it with Race for the Galaxy, but so far that hasn't stuck. We gravitate back to this one instead.

We recently tried Puerto Rico, and I think our San Juan experience helped increase our enjoyment. Maybe PR will replace SJ?

My 2013 ranking:
11

# of Plays (since 2009):
32

Likes:
Theme. I’d much rather be building a city than fighting/settling planets. The way the cards are used in multiple ways (production good, money to build, or as an actual building). Very elegant game.

Dislikes:
I do wish there were more successful paths to victory. I wish the game had been fleshed out with expansions the way Race for the Galaxy was. I’d love bringing in new cards and new strategies every couple years. ***Just realized that I want the 2nd edition with its re-balanced Prefecture and Guild Hall and new buildings.***

Tidbit:
It has maybe the best insert (along with Lords of Waterdeep) I’ve seen in a game. But I ended up tossing it once I sleeved the cards. Then I ended up unsleeving when the slipperiness of the card deck was bugging my wife.

Memorable Game:
Played in a beautiful room on a romantic trip to Bermuda with my wife. Looking out on the ocean as we fell back in love……with the game. Ha, ha.

Question:
Have you tried the 2nd edition or at least the expansion buildings?
