This is one of the best board games every made; I can’t possibly see how it would work as an online computer game. With the group dynamics gone I don’t see how this would be any fun. I’m gonna have to give a preemptive thumbs down on this one.
Speaking of board games: Peurto Rico is an excellent new game from Rio Grande Games. If you haven’t played it, run out and buy it, you won’t be disappointed.
