Hi,

i bought the classic Puerto Rico lately.
the major disadvantage i find is the boring building tiles.

i saw the beautiful tiles in the anniversary edition (and in the online game).
is there a place that sells only these tiles?

Thanks!

I don't think you can buy them, but you can PnP them: Base game and expansion buildings, illustrated

The currently available non-english editions (Germany, Portuguese, etc) all use the art from the anniversary edition. If you are handy with a second language or don't mind losing the reminder text for building descriptions that would work.

The tiles are not as thick as the anniversary edition. Just pretty.

Acquiring the expansions that are available separately would match the art of the old edition, which I believe is the problem here.

You could try Chinese version.

It's double side tiles. One side is Chinese, and another side is English.

The link just for your reference. You can see the pictures.

Is the Chinese version a legitimately licensed product?

I would discourage anyone from paying for a black market bootleg.

I believe the brazillian version uses the same art as the one in the Anniversary Edition
And yes, it is not a pirated version, it is an official licensed game.

But you have to keep in mind, the text in those tiles are in portuguese.
