What's New in Version 2.2
Added 64-Bit support
Modern Classic, Great App
Puerto Rico stands near the top of the heap as far as modern board games go. It's easy to learn, has many pathways to victory, and has a fun theme. This app has been around a few years and is a solid adaptation of the game. This may not sound impressive, but many board game adaptations are pretty weak and many are buggy. The AI works well enough, though at this point I can beat it pretty regularly. The online component is solid but I don't find many people looking for games these days. I was heartened to see the recent update to a 64 bit app which shows the developer hasn't abandoned the app (something that has happened with a few of my other favorites.
TLDR: just buy it, you won't regret it
The AI is very good, and this suffices to get your playing in. Unlike playing online with BGA, where one can wait a day or longer for their turn. It's also the way to hone ones strategies as you simply can't see strategies when you have to wait a day for your turn! I am not sure the colonist function is working correctly. I have never seen 18 colonists on the ship in the BGA games or in live playing with friends. It ends the game soon, especially if someone has a hospice. These large numbers of ship colonists happen often, maybe it's correct, lots of vacant buildings. Idk. The expansion sets would be nice to have too, something to program for the future.
Overall a great, quick way to get your PR gaming in.
Great implementation of a great board game.
I'm pretty impressed with the AI. Developing a good one like you see in this game is not a simple task.
