I got three games of Puerto Rico in last night - and it must have been my night, because I won all three. The first two were close, but I really dominated the last game. I played a money/building game all three games, but the last one played very differently. In the first two, I bought the Factory early, and made sure to produce 4 different goods (first game) or all 5 goods (second game). I didn't really worry about losing goods to the ocean. Those games played within 2 points, and in the first, I just barely beat out the shipping strategy (corn). The third game was odd. I had almost saved enough to get the Factory again, when one of the players - producing only corn at that point - bought the last one (he later said that yes, it was to stop me from getting it). So I stopped diversifying, stayed with indigo, tobacco, and coffee - and bought a Large Market. By the end of the game, I had more victory chips than the other guys, and two big buildings. That was a fun game. I doubt I'll win three straight next time out though.
