Product Description

In Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan), players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.

Setup includes randomly placing large hexagonal tiles (each showing a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape and surrounding them with water tiles, some of which contain ports of exchange. Number disks, which will correspond to die rolls (two 6-sided dice are used), are placed on each resource tile. Each player is given two settlements (think: houses) and roads (sticks) which are, in turn, placed on intersections and borders of the resource tiles. Players collect a hand of resource cards based on which hex tiles their last-placed house is adjacent to. A robber pawn is placed on the desert tile.

A turn consists of possibly playing a development card, rolling the dice, everyone (perhaps) collecting resource cards based on the roll and position of houses (or upgraded cities—think: hotels) unless a 7 is rolled, turning in resource cards (if possible and desired) for improvements, trading cards at a port, and trading resource cards with other players. If a 7 is rolled, the active player moves the robber to a new hex tile and steals resource cards from other players who have built structures adjacent to that tile.

Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army (from some of the development cards), and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points (some of which may be held in secret), he announces his total and claims the win.

Catan has won multiple awards and is one of the most popular games in recent history due to its amazing ability to appeal to experienced gamers as well as those new to the hobby.

I love this game
September 19, 2017

My gaming buddies and I love this game. It's a good mix of strategy and chance. The strategy involves building the right things at the right times and locations. The dice rolling keeps things a little random. We also do a lot of wheeling and dealing with each other on resources.

We've gotten the 5-6 player expansion and played it. It was nice to have more people included, but it also got a little unwieldy and made it take longer. I cannot wait to get all of the other expansions.

I limit myself to 4 stars only because I may never find the "perfect" game.

 
 
 
 
 
Great for families and new gamers
February 12, 2013

Settlers of Catan belongs in every family game collection. Worldwide popularity, even 15 years after its debut, is enough to demonstrate that it is a game for everyone. Yes, heavy gamers will eventually want more combat or deep strategy, but Catan has enough meat to remain interesting and fun for most people, while also being easy to learn and enjoy the first time. There is enough luck to give everyone periods of advancement and frustration during each game. But, like backgammon, a good strategy will do much to overcome the luck of the dice. Trading and competition for locations keeps everyone involved throughout. Catan makes the perfect game to begin a game group - especially with international players, since so many countries have a version of this game. A wide variety of expansions and gamer-developed variants provide sparks to keep things interesting game after game.

Again, every family or game group should have Settlers of Catan, and the 5-6 player expansion at least. It truly is a staple of 21st Century gaming.

Excellent game play for whole family
June 30, 2012

I have been playing settlers of catan for two years with my family or friends. It is great fun! The setup and game play can be a bit long depending on the number of players. I recommend setting aside 1-2 hours of time or setting the board up in a location you can leave it and pick up where you left off on another day.

Because the pieces can be placed randomly, the replay on this game is very good. There are many expansions available for those that get tired of the base game. I highly recommend playing with the fish (sold a separate expansion or as part of Traders and Barbarians).

This game allows for bargaining amongst the players which adds another layer of unpredictability and this interaction can add the enjoyment of the game among players. Some people may find this part of the game rubs them the wrong way, so couples proceed with caution on that aspect (Remember that games are meant to be fun, not cause marital arguments).

I would highly recommend this game and it is one of my favorites!!!
