Puerto Rico Deluxe
When I first started to play "real" board games and wanted to learn more about the different mechanism in games there was always one game that would come up, Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is arguably the best example of a city building economic game and possibly the best game in 20 years.
In Puerto Rico you will be Colonial Governors trying to earn the most victory points. Players will take turns picking role cards to make actions. It feels like a worker placement where you are the worker. You will be strategically making decisions to grow goods, export goods and constructed buildings.
Rio Grande Games is set to release Puerto Rico Deluxe on August 20th, 2019 for $54.95. This game will include the base game plus the Buildings and Nobles expansions with dual side tiles new art. I have only played and never owned Puerto Rico. However, I may just go for this one.
