    Unlike its big brother Puerto Rico, it's universal, so it can be played on both the iPhone and iPad, plus it's more immediately understandable and playable. Anyway, once you visit San Juan, you might just want to see what the rest of Puerto Rico has to offer.

    San Juan is a nicely flowing card game, where you try to optimize your production. The game takes it's cues from the board game Puerto Rico. [June 2013]

    Well built and easy to pick up, San Juan is an intriguing game of building and trade.

    As far as the iOS implementation, I actually found San Juan to be a nicer experience over its board game brethren Puerto Rico. While both games hinge on a similar mechanic and identical theme, I found the simplicity of the cards to help immensely with the UI.

    San Juan is an excellent card game, but this digital translation may not be snazzy enough for iOS gamers.

    A central fact about San Juan is that you're playing against the shuffle more than you're playing against the other players. If you're willing to draw out a ten-minute solitaire game into however long your asynchronous matches take, San Juan has multiplayer support. And even if you're not into multiplayer, it has a nifty take on leaderboards.
