So, does it keep track of any sort of stats? Like win/loss or an ELO?

The lack of async is a little disappointing, I'm more hyped for the Puerto Rico HD 1.1 update.

Not to be nitpicky, but just so it's clear...this is technically a card game based upon the Puerto Rico board game. This is not meant as a slight by any means. I instabought this. But much like the Lost Cities board game spawned a card game based on it, this is based in the world of Puerto Rico, but with differing mechanics. Be that as it may, I'm really looking forward to digging into this.

Speaking of Lost Cities, thecodingmonkeys (devs of carcassonne) were supposed to release the card version of Lost Cities in July
