My family has played this game for years, and it is still our favorite. Both advanced and beginner players can sit down at the same game and enjoy it immediately.
What can I say... my son introduced us to Catan and everyone we have shown it to have become equally enchanted!
My partner is a Physics teacher and his geeky students called it "Epic". A suitable description. Play on!
I love this game! I played it with my family on Christmas, and it is so fun. At first I really didn't know how to play, but as soon as we started playing for a little bit, it was all clear. Now I bet I could play it in my sleep. Trust me! This game ROCKS!!

Germany's Game of the Year in 1995, with over 2 million copies sold in that gaming-obsessed country, is likely to be a favorite for many years to come. As is typical of most other good German games, all players are involved no matter whose turn it is, there's a wonderful blend of skill and chance, and plenty of difficult decisions need to be made. However, this battle of trading resources seems to be the very best of its kind. If you still cannot find more than one other to play even after you tell them about this game's remarkable success, never mind: Mayfair has also produced it as a two-player card game. It does not get much better than this.
