Fun Games Cafe Recommendation
If you've tried this game and enjoy it, check out the card game San Juan by the same designer, which is based on Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the very best strategic games out there, and it's one of my all-time favourites as well. Having almost no random or luck element, but a dazzling array of potential strategies and tactics, make this a game you can return to again and again. Each player develops their own board, but the effects of role selection - which determines what action everyone can do that round - provide more opportunities for player interaction than are evident at first glance. For those gamers that like a lot of meat on the bone, this is a must-have.
