Simply perfect for two players!
August 21, 2002

If the classical version of the game called in french 'Les colons de Catane' is really good, we've been very happy to buy the 2 players version.

My wife and me are playing often the game when it's rainning (like often in Belgium) and it goes very quick. We've lot of fun with this card version. I'll recommend to you ...

 
 
 
 
 
Ach du meine Gute, eine Seuche
January 27, 2002

Positives: My wife does not speak German at all, and my knowledge decreases by the day as I don't speak to anyone anymore in the tongue, so it is a lot of fun to hear her walking around saying 'ferntuffel,' no matter how many times I tell her it is 'feuerteufel.' She has gotten 'kundschafter' down pat, however. In any case, the game has a lot of diversity in strategy. There are many different ways to win. The art is prima! The English version has a container that was designed for many different games, and this one just doesn't quite fit. This is no problem for the German version; all of the pieces have their own home. (I am very anal about storage, if you did not guess!)

Negatives: My wife and I do not use the 'bad' cards ('Schwartzer Ritter' 'Feuerteufel' 'Raubzug') because they create too many arguments. We satisfy ourselves by being nice to each other, saving our marriage, and playing to fewer points to shorten this potentially 2+ hour game.

Verdict: Viel Spass! Kaufen Es. I managed to get the game for a bargain price, but I would have paid full anyway. I suggest you pick it up, especially if you want to learn some fun German words. :)

Settlers for two please
December 30, 2001

We all know Settlers by now--the game that uses most of the known gaming formats and puts them into one solid game. You've got your boardgame, cardgame, and strategy game in one. This, to me, is what makes the game stand out. With the two-player version, you are left with just the cardgame element. Will it stand up to the test?

The first couple of games played, I never had the idea I was fighting my opponent. It seemed that the objectives were to just keep on putting as many victory cards into play until you reached 12 points, which granted you immediate victory. When you think of the concept Teuber had in mind creating the game, this seems just about right; Catan is a place of relative peace, and the objective to pound your opponents into oblivion was never part of this or his world.

However, after playing a couple of more hours, you realise that gaining the upper hand is a subtle progress which forces you to make decisions at multiple stages in the game.

All in all, the game is well balanced, the gameplay is fast, and the expansions are great and truly in style. The down side might be that this a 1-on-1 game that takes over an hour to play. My friends aren't that interesting.
