Return to Puerto Rico! … 2-Player
Puerto Rico’s golden age returns. Through you and this
card game sequel! Players travel now to the capital city of this
beautiful island. Who will build the most important buildings?
Players build palaces, poor houses, silver smelters, gold mines,
and many others—each with its own special features. The cleverest
player will build best and win!
As with the boardgame, players choose roles which can help
all players, but the choosing player gets a special privilege
with the role chosen. Players build buildings, produce and sell
goods, and so on. The game is based on Puerto Rico, but
is different enough to give players new challenges and opportunities
for fun and enjoyment.
Games will be 2-, not 4-player, making it imperative that
players bring a copy of the game if they wish to play. If games
are in short supply, and they almost certainly will be, priority
will be given to those bringing a copy of the game.
The first round will consist of four preliminary games with
players matched by their records in true swiss fashion. After
the swiss portion, those with at least three wins will qualify
for Round 2 and continue to Single Elimination play.
We will be using the optional rule wherein the first player
starts with five cards and the second player starts with six
cards. Both players will then discard down to four cards.
