The Buildings of Puerto Rico

Basic Game Buildings

Production Buildings

Produktionsgebäude

Production buildings convert raw goods into finished goods.

To produce goods in the Craftsman phase you must have both a plantation and its associated production building, both manned with a colonist.

(Example: To produce 2 barrels of tobacco, you need 2 occupied tobacco plantations and a Tobacco Storage with 2 occupied slots).

Corn is harvested and does not need a production building.

Purple Buildings

There are 2 each of 17 different violet buildings. Each building has its own particular function, but must be manned by a colonist before the function can be used. Using these functions is voluntary, and those that operate automatically can be deactivated by clicking the checkmark on the top right of the building. Pointing your mouse at a building in the Building list or in your building spaces will display the building's function.

Small Market (Construction 1/Victory 1)
Kleiner Markt

When the owner of an occupied small market sells a barrel in the trader phase, he gets an extra doubloon from the bank for it.

Hacienda (Construction 2/Victory 1)
Hazienda

On his turn in the settler phase, the owner of an occupied hacienda may, before he takes a face-up plantation tile, take an additional tile chosen at random from the rest of the supply. He does this by clicking on the top right corner of the hacienda.

Construction Hut (Construction 2/Victory 1)
Bauhütte

In the settler phase, the owner of an occupied construction hut, can place a quarry on his island of one of the face-up plantation tiles.

Small Warehouse (Construction 3/Victory 1)

The owner of an occupied small warehouse may store, at the end of the captain phase, in addition to the single goods barrel he is allowed to store on his windrose, all the barrels of one kind of goods that he chooses.

Hospice (Construction 4/Victory 2)
Hospiz

During the settler phase, when the owner of an occupied hospice places a plantation or quarry tile on his island, he may take a colonist from the colonist supply and place it on this tile.
Note: If the player also owns an occupied hacienda and chooses to take the additional face-down tile, he does not get a colonist for the extra tile. If there are no more colonists in the colonist supply, he may take one from the colonist ship. If there are also none there, he goes without.

Office (Construction 5/Victory 2)
Kontor

When the owner of an occupied office sells a good to the trading house in the trader phase, it need not be different than the goods already there. If the trading house is full, the player cannot sell a good there!

Large Market (Construction 5/Victory 2)
Großer Markt

When the owner of an occupied large market sells a good in the trader phase, he gets an extra 2 doubloons from the bank for it.
Note: If a player owns both a small and large market, he takes an extra 3 doubloons when he sells a good to the trading house.

Large Warehouse (Construction 6/Victory 2)
Großes Lager

Note: If a player owns both a small and large warehouse, he may store all the barrels of 3 kinds of goods that he chooses.

Factory (Construction 7/Victory 3)
Manufaktur

If the owner of an occupied factory produces goods of more than one kind in the craftsman phase, he earns money from the bank: for two kinds of goods, he earns 1 doubloon, for three kinds of goods, he earns 2 doubloons, for four kinds of goods, he earns 3 doubloons, and for all five kinds of goods, he earns 5 doubloons. The number of barrels produced plays no role.

University (Construction 8/Victory 3)
Universität

During the builder phase, when the owner of an occupied university builds a building in his city, he may take a colonist from the colonist supply and place it on this tile.
Note: If he builds a production building with more than one circle, he gets only one colonist. If there are no more colonists in the colonist supply, he may take one from the colonist ship. If there are also none there, he goes without.

Harbour (Construction 8/Victory 3)
Hafen

Each time, during the captain phase, the owner of an occupied harbour loads goods on a cargo ship, he earns one extra victory point.

Wharf (Construction 9/Victory 3)
Werft

During the captain phase, when a player with an occupied wharf must load goods, instead of loading them on a cargo ship, he may place all goods of one kind in the goods supply and score the appropriate victory points as though he has loaded them on a cargo ship. It is as though the player has an imaginary ship with unlimited capacity at his disposal.
The player must load goods on a cargo ship whenever he can on his turn during the captain phase, except when he chooses to use his wharf and "load" them on his imaginary ship.

The wharf can be used once per captain phase by its owner, but he may choose when to use it, if at all. This imaginary ship can take any one good, but it may be of a kind on one of the three cargo ships or the other imaginary wharf ship.
Note: When a player uses his wharf, he must load all the goods barrels of the kind he chooses that he has. He is not required, however, to choose the good he has the most of.

Large (Green) Buildings

The following five buildings exist only once in the game. Although they consume two spaces in the city they are considered to be only one building. If the buildings are 'occupied' at the end of the game then Victory Points are awarded accordingly.

Guild Hall
Zunfthaus

The owner of the occupied guild hall earns, at game end, an additional 1 VP for each small production building (occupied or unoccupied) in his city (= small indigo plant and small sugar mill), and an additional 2 VP for each large production building (occupied or unoccupied) in his city (= indigo plant, sugar mill, tobacco storage, and coffee roaster).

Residence (Construction 10/Victory 4)

Puerto Rico Expansion - Buildings

The Puerto Rico expansion brings new buildings into play. Players choose which buildings they wish to use between the expansion and basic game before the start of the game. Use options /extension and/or /random.

With /random the buildings are selected randomly from both games sets. With /extension players select as follows:

At the beginning of the game a window opens, in which all available buildings are displayed. Clicking one the buildings you want. Buildings already selected are marked by a red outline.

Buildings are interchangeable between the basic game and the expansion defined by the building cost associated. The factory from the basic version is removed in the BSW version. Once selected there will be 2 of each Purple building and one of each green building chosen.

Buildings are divided in pairs or groups of 4, according to construction costs. e.g. there are two building types with construction costs of 1 (the small market hall and the aquaduct). Only one can be selected from each pair of buildings. A group of 4 to choose from you would therefore select 2 building types. Choose any 5 of the 10 available green buildings. Buildings, which may no longer be selected are then faded out.

Once all the selections have been made the dialogue box closes, and the game can commence.

Purple Buildings

Aquaduct (Construction 1/Victory 1)
Aquädukt

If the owner of an occupied aqueduct produces >0 indigo or sugar then he receives an extra indigo/sugar for each large mill.

Forest House (Construction 2/Victory 1)
Forsthaus

On his turn in the settler phase, the owner of an occupied forest house may place a forest on one of his empty island spaces instead of choosing one of the available plantations (or quarry, if that was an option). When he places a forest, he chooses one of the face-up plantation tiles (not a quarry) and discards it from the game. When there are no more forest orplantation tiles, he may no longer place a forest.

When he builds a building (whether the forest house is occupied or not), he may reduce the cost of the building by 1 doubloon for each two forests on his island. This reduction is in addition to the builder and quarry reductions, but does not come with the column restriction of the quarry.

Black Market (Construction 2/Victory 1)
Schwarzmarkt

When the owner of an occupied black market builds a building, he may reduce the cost of the building by up to 3 doubloons by returning one colonoist, one good, and/or one VP to the supply.

The guests may be moved in the same or in different phases.

Trading post (Construction 5/Victory2)
Handelsposten

During the trader phase, the owner of an occupied trading post may choose whether to sell good to the trading house his trading post.

Also, the player may ship as few (at least 1) or as many as he likes, and need not ship all of a kind.
