Puerto Rico Board Game Boats by kmemmons Feb 7, 2013

Description

While playing a round of Puerto Rico with my student game group, we realized that we wanted 3D boats to store our goods and colonists while playing. A few measurements and quick design in Inventor helped us achieve our goal. It's hard to see in this photo but the boats for the goods have recessed squares to help hold and count the goods.

Brilliant idea! And now I have the perfect use for that roll of brown PLA that has been sitting on my shelf for a while. :)

Instructions

For the standard Puerto Rico game, print out Boats 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and the Colonist boat. I used a different color for the colonist boat to make it easy to identify it.

If you happen to have the 6th player fan-expansion for Puerto Rico available at BoardGameGeek, print out the 9-cargo boat.

I have uploaded a file for the goods in case you lose one and need to print a replacement and uploaded a convenient tray to store your supply of colonists.

I've also included the original .ipt files from Inventor in case you wish to redesign them.
