The situation in Puerto Rico is dire. Millions are facing shortages of power, water, and food. By some estimates, the island will be without electricity for half a year. New York and Puerto Rico have long enjoyed a special bond, and now they need our help more than ever.
On Sunday, October 15, you are invited to take part in a Puerto Rico tournament organized by Hex & Co., Upper Manhattan's first board game cafe. Puerto Rico (the game) is a hugely popular resource management game that combines strategy, cooperation, and a little bit of luck to build your island into a trading powerhouse. There will also be free play, and games of San Juan, a card game based on Puerto Rico. All proceeds will be donated to Unidos, the Hispanic Federation's disaster relief fund.
