Puerto Rico for the PC
From the Publisher...
THE HIGHEST RATED GAME OF ALL TIME IS NOW ON THE PC
Puerto Rico, the highest rated game of all time*, will be coming to the PC in January 2006. Puerto Rico has set the standard for the modern boardgame and now with Puerto Rico: The PC Game you can play it anytime and with people anywhere.
50 years after Columbus discovered the New World, the island colony of Puerto Rico began to blossom. In Puerto Rico, the players will take on the roles of Prospector, Governor, Settler, Trader, Merchant, Builder, and Craftsman attempting to build the new colony while building their own wealth and reputation.

Now, with Puerto Rico: The PC Game, fans can play solo or against friends online. When playing against the computer, you can set each player’s ability level.

|This is a fair digital adaptation of the original and I think it's great for hot seat or online play. When I lived overseas, this game was a great way to keep up old times with friends back home. If you aren't familiar with Puerto Rico the game yet, check it out - it's my favorite Eurogame to date. Worth it if you're looking at it!
