It's no secret that I've been gaming for 40+ years and have great affection for many of the games of Avalon Hill, SPI, and others from decades past. Recently, my friend Brian was kind enough to pass on a copy of a game that, while it is just slightly over a decade old, has become one of the classics in boardgaming. Many are familiar with it, Puerto Rico
(2002). It's a fairly simple game, some would put it in the gateway games category, and I'd agree. Even more nostalgia-worthy, Brian also passed along two other games to me called Medici
(1995) and El Grande
(1995). I was familiar with the first, though I haven't played it before, but the second was one I did not know even by name. I look forward to trying out each. If you know them and plan to be in the area, let me know and we'll give them a go sometime.
