Puerto Rico: Expansions 1&2 – The New Buildings & The Nobles
Prospector, captain, mayor, trader, settler, craftsman, or builder? Which roles will you play in the new world? Will you own the most prosperous plantations? Will you build the most valuable buildings? You have but one goal: achieve the greatest prosperity and highest respect! This is shown by the player who earns the most victory points. He will win the game!
Prospector or Trader? Builder or producer? Which roles will you play in the new world? Your goal is to become San Juan's most prosperous citizen. Manufacture goods like coffee or tobacco, then trade them for money. Use the money to construct buildings to make your city more prosperous. A card game based on Puerto Rico. The pack of 110 cards consists of production buildings (indigo, sugar, tobacco, coffee, and silver) and "violet" buildings that grant special powers or extra victory points. Cards from the hand can be either built or used as money to build something else. Cards from the deck are used to represent goods produced by the production buildings, in which case they are left face-down. A seven-card hand limit is enforced once per round. This new edition of San Juan contains the additional buildings from the previously available expansion but not the event cards. It also contains a new building not previously available in any version: The Hut. This building grants a card when nothing was sold in the trader phase.
In Thurn & Taxis , players build post office routes across Bavaria and the regions around, collecting bonus points in various ways. The board shows a map of all the cities, with roads leading from each one to some of its neighbors. There are various colored regions around the board, most with two or three cities, and a large region with all the Bavarian cities in the center. Players build postal routes from city to city to city so that each city is adjacent to the next city on the route and there is a road connecting these two cities. Each route must consist of at least three cities. Players may only build one route at a time. Routes are represented by melded city cards arranged in the order of the route. Players start with a supply of 20 post offices in their color, a carriage house card and a player aid card. The board is populated with bonus tiles, carriage cards and city cards. On a turn a player will draw a card from a display of six, face up, city cards (or the top of the face down deck) and meld one card, either starting a new route or adding to the current one. If after adding to the route, the length of the route is at least three cities, the player may declare it finished and score it. The player may, depending on the length of the route and which cities are in the route, place post offices in the cities, collect bonus tiles, and acquire a higher value carriage. Optionally, the player may receive support from one postal official in the form of: drawing a second card, melding a second card, refreshing the six city card display, or acquiring a higher value carriage than the route length when finishing a route. Once a route is scored the city cards of that route are discarded, and the player begins a new route on his next turn. When a player exhausts his supply of post offices or acquires a value 7 carriage the end of the game is triggered. Play continues until the player who is last in turn order finishes his turn, and the game ends. Players score points for their highest valued carriage and bonus tiles, and lose points for unplaced post offices. The player with the most points wins. The fact that you *must* add at least one city to your route each turn or lose the whole route gives the game an enjoyable planning element.
This deluxe game of Puerto Rico began as Puerto Rico: Anniversary Edition , a tenth anniversary edition of Andreas Seyfarth's Puerto Rico that celebrates Puerto Rico' s debut at Spiel 2001 with a production-ready copy that met mass acclaim. Game play is the same as the original Puerto Rico game: The players are plantation owners in the days when ships had sails. By growing up to five different kind of crops – corn, indigo, sugar, tobacco, and coffee – they try to run their business more efficiently than their close competitors: growing crops and storing them efficiently, developing San Juan with useful buildings, deploying their colonists to best effect, selling crops at the right time, and, most importantly, shipping their goods back to Europe for maximum benefit. The game system lets players choose the order of the phases in each turn by allowing each player to choose a role from those remaining when it is his turn. No role can be selected twice in the same round. The player who ends up with the most victory points – achieved by shipping goods and building – wins the game. Puerto Rico: Anniversary Edition and its follow-up versions include two expansions : Puerto Rico: Expansion I – New Buildings, that first appeared in 2002 in Spielbox magazine and was later published by alea and Rio Grande Games, and the Puerto Rico: Expansion II – The Nobles expansion from alea's Schatzkiste collection of game expansions. The game has completely redesigned components and artwork: The cardboard doubloons are now sixty metal coins, while the fifty octagonal resources have been replaced with colored wooden crates. The building tiles are now illustrated, and the cardboard for those tiles and other components are nearly 3 mm thick to give the bits more heft. The individual player boards, the VP tokens, the ships and other components have also been redesigned.
Expansion I,The New Buildings The 31 new cards (26 violet buildings and 5 factories), are shuffled with the cards from the basic game. Expansion II, The Events: 6 different event cards are added. During the game every time an event card is revealed face up, whether it be during the card’s distribution at the beginning of the game, during the councilor phase, the trader phase, the prospector phase, by using the power of a building or by the resolution of an event, this card is placed face up alongside the character tiles in the middle of the table, and a replacement card is drawn immediately. This expansion has not been released separately, but can be found in the Treasure Chest. The buildings (but not the events) were also included in the 2014 edition of San Juan, along with a new building not previously available in any version: The Hut.
