Origin of the game
This game was conceived, developed, written, described and designed by Andreas Seyfarth and published in 2002 by the small Dutch publisher Alea. Ravensburger soon took over this game with all the rights for a considerable amount, which Alea, as a small publisher, naturally liked. You as a player must bring the island of Puerto Rico to bloom, work together on a beautiful island.
Of course there are a number of rings in the cable and this does not happen automatically. All players have the goal of seeing the island flourish, but of course there is only one player who gets the honorable mention and task for this and that is where things go wrong. Getting in each other’s way with tricky tickets and obstacles. Who is the fastest, the smartest and who wins? That is the question.
Object of the game
Ships with goods must sail to the Old World. So your goal is to get that job done. First you need to collect as many victory points as possible and with these points you can send ships with goods to the Old World. Once you have arrived in the Old World, you must start building buildings to make Puerto Rico flourish.
It is certainly not simple and quite difficult, because it is of course not easy to collect just a few victory points, find a ship and build some buildings. If only it were that simple and Andreas Seyfarth, the inventor and inventor of this game, has of course thought about it. Besides that, he was also inspired by the island of Puerto Rico itself. Anyway, back to the game itself and its purpose.
There are different roles and throughout the game a player like yourself can choose a role. You can earn a role, of course, one role is worth more than the other. And so you can gain more victory points and reach the figurative finish line faster. Roles out there in the game are captain, mayor, master builder and a number of other roles of interest in Puerto Rico. The roles are therefore important, but also the ships that sail around the island.
Puerto Rico is a fun game for which you definitely need to be fast, smart and handy and of course have the right entrepreneurial spirit. Beat your fellow players, collect the victory points and go around the island with all your collected ships as quickly as possible and get the best role in the game. For example, the mayor of Puerto Rico, you decide what happens, that’s smart, right? With that you can get more points and win, it’s that simple.
