Rules: Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico: Rules Summary (#8) - BGG listing
- Another long break. Well, I've been busy and this took longer than expected.
- PR has been the #1 game on Boardgamegeek for quite a long time. Nevertheless, you still find people who haven't played it before. Part of the problem is its own success: it's so good that people end up playing it many times. Then, it's hard for a newbie to jump in because there has been so much discussion and experience with the game that many people are "experts". But it really is a very good game. I'm a bit burned out on it - I was obsessed, and played hundreds of games on BSW - but I'd still love to play it from time to time. I'm not likely to forget the rules, but I figured I could record this fairly quickly (guess I wasn't entirely correct about that!).
- In the recording, I refer to a BGG article - the Large Warehouse of Puerto Rico knowledge. It's been a long time since I've looked at the PR page; in that time, much more has been written. Paenblack put together a nice compilation of the articles, with links, here.
- Next up ... not sure. I had decided to work through some of the top-ranked games, starting with PR. But I just learned several new games in the last few days, and I'd like to get the rules for those recorded before I forget them again ... back to the original purpose of this blog! We'll just see, I guess...
