Product Description

Given the amount of german text in these expansions, and how old my german is, I am sure there are errors. If you find any, please let me know. I have tried to remain consistent with mayfairs terminology for their English-language version of the card game. Again, if anything is out of sync, please let me know.

The Catan school of commerce
September 25, 1999

Handel & Wandel (Trade and Change) is a new expansion set for Kosmos' Settlers of Catan card game. These cards are the result of a competition for fans to submit new card ideas for the game.

This theme set can be played along with the basic cards in an expanded basic game, or players can construct a deck of cards from this set and others for tournament play against someone else who has formed his or her own deck.

The Handel & Wandel theme set builds on the little-used 'Counting house' card from the base game. Many cards can only be played once you have a Counting house in your principality. Most cards are variations on the theme of commerce; there are cards which allow you to increase gold production, trade at a one-for-one ratio, to store extra resources directly as commerce points, and to use the fleets that your opponent owns.

The focus on commerce means that there is a continuous battle for the most commerce points, and because you can never be sure that your resources aren't going to be taken away from you they are almost always spent as soon as you have enough to build with. This, along with the lowering of the importance of victory point cards, makes for a longer game than the basic game.

For the budding trader and the player who can never get by without a ton of commerce points, the Handel & Wandel theme set contains some fascinating new cards that add a new flavour to the basic game. Definitely recommended.
