In March 2023, I detailed production and rulebook problems in Puerto Rico 1897, a new edition of Andreas Seyfarth‘s classic game that publisher Ravensburger debuted in Europe in October 2022 and released in the U.S. in February 2023. (For details on how this edition came to be, check out this July 2022 post that includes an interview with cultural consultant Jason Perez.)
At the time, Ravensburger announced that it had “stopped production of the game to guarantee that all copies of Puerto Rico 1897 moving forward will have the correct number of tiles and an updated rule book to support an ideal gaming experience”.
Now, a Ravensburger representative has passed along an update on the status of this game:
The corrected Puerto Rico 1897 game will include:
• Updated instructions
• Correct total number of tiles
• Text added to building tiles
