If you've never explored the world of board games beyond Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble, you may not be familiar with Puerto Rico. Among board game fans, though, the game is very highly regarded, with 8 years top ranking on BoardGameGeek, 250,000 copies sold and an International Gamers Award under its belt.

Ravensburger Digital has now brought the game to the iPad, following a number of other successful board game adaptations on the platform. Developer Codito Development is well-versed in electronic adaptations of board and card games, with versions of Reiner Knizia's Medici and Ra as well as Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling's Tikal under its belt.
Puerto Rico is a clever strategy game in which players multi-task by taking on a number of different roles each turn. Constructing buildings, harvesting crops and shipping bounty back to the Old World allows players to accumulate the Victory Points necessary for success.
The iPad version features online and solo play modes, multiple difficulty modes and a tutorial for those new to the game. And it's got the thumbs-up from board game creator Andreas Seyfarth.
"The conversion of the rules and the gameplay is impressive. The developer really did a great job," said Seyfarth. "Now I have to get an iPad just for Puerto Rico!"
Pick up the game from the App Store for $7.99.
