The golden age of Puerto Rico 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 other types - 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-player, 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 probably will be, priority will be given to those bringing a game. Players are allowed to use either the first or second edition of the game, their choice. If the pair of players are unable to decide on a version, first edition will be the default option. There will be rules given on how to alter the second edition to first edition, if necessary.

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.
