Tropic Euro is an online adaptation of the board game Puerto Rico. The original game supports 3-5 players and is based on the island of Puerto Rico during the age of Caribbean ascendancy. Tropic Euro maintains the same game mechanics except has a new theme, set in Europe just after the end of World War II. It also supports the official two-player variant and all of the extra buildings added in the Puerto Rico expansion pack released in 2004.
The players are island owners in tropical regions of the world during the aftermath of World War II. Growing up to five different kind of crops: Banana, Cocoa, Sugar, Rubber and Coffee, they must try to run their business more efficiently than their close competitors; growing crops and storing them efficiently, developing their island with useful buildings, deploying the tools supplied from Europe to best effect, selling crops at the right time, and most importantly, shipping their goods back to Europe for maximum benefit.
The game system lets players choose the order of the phases in each turn by allowing each player to choose a role from those remaining when it is their turn. No role can be selected twice in the same round. The player who selects the best roles to advance their position during the game will win.
Tropic Euro is free to play and is Java-based so is fully compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
