In Settlers of Catan, groups of settlers try to become the dominant group on a remote island by building settlements and cities across its uncharted wilderness. Each player tries to guide their settlers to victory by clever building and trading. Building is based on resources that you gain based on where you build and the roll of the dice. This combination of strategy and luck makes Settlers an excellent game for players of all skill levels.
We really like this game...noticed that a lot of people didn't like the two-person game...not sure what the actual rules for the two-person game are 'cause we've been using a dutch version and can't read the rules (we were taught by our friend)..but we made up a two-person version that we think is reasonable...Each player plays two colors, alternate placing of towns and taking turns, player cannot trade with himself but can use monopoly card to transfer a resource, play each color to 7 points...
Siedler has definitely turned into a favorite between me and my friends. We are so hooked on this game, that we have already purchased the expansion set to allow more than 4 people to play. The interesting thing about the expansion set is that the rules change a bit, so the game goes much faster.
We have the German edition, which we think compared to the English version, is much more colorful. But I guess if you cannot read German, you might have a problem.
I was first introduced to this game by a friend who brought it back from Germany. I was hooked from the beginning!
Then I went there myself for a few months. Needless to say, this provided many hours of entertainment with friends I made there. A great bonding time! It is challenging and exciting!
