Carcassonne 2-player spinoff, Puerto Rico card game before end of year

While I was at ICv2, I found this stuff about Rio Grande’s recent successes and big plans for the rest of the year… mostly for September. The lede is about the 2-player Balrog game or whatever. We’ll see about that, but I’m excited that Carcassonne and Puerto Rico may be on their way to being franchises on par with Settlers of Catan.
