Requires ownership of Settlers of Catan to play. Dark clouds are gathering over the peaceful island of Catan. Wild barbarians, attracted by the wealth of Catan, sailed to attack the country. Fortunately, warning has given Catan time to meet the danger. The size of the barbarian army corresponds to the number of cities in Catan.

Requires ownership of Settlers of Catan to play. Dark clouds are gathering over the peaceful island of Catan. Wild barbarians, attracted by the wealth of Catan, sailed to attack the country. Fortunately, warning has given Catan time to meet the danger. The size of the barbarian army corresponds to the number of cities in Catan. Thus, for Catan to fend off the barbarian attack, the players must form a knight force as strong as the barbarian force. In addition to the barbarians, players compete to build the three great metropolises of Catan. Each of these magnificent centers are worth two additional victory points. To build a metropolis, players must invest in city improvements. To acquire these improvements, players must acquire the three new types of Trade Cards: Coinage, Paper, and Cloth. These cards can only be gained by building a city next to mountain, forest, or pasture hexes. For 2 to 4 players.

Not for everyone We bought this thinking that it would extend the game the same as Seafarers but it changed the game play so much that it was not enjoyable to play.The added elements are knights to guard your cities which take resources to keep active. A new kind of barbarian is present which knocks out your defense based on what somebody else did with there defenses. yes, you are punished for someone else’s lack of defenses.There is also added refined resources like cloth which are spent on improvements to your cities, knight upgrades or on a new kind of action cards. These action cards are similar to development cards but they go beyond. They include things like spies, trade agreements, embassies.You spend time working on so many different these things that game play is slower and easily more frustrating.

We love this game. We needed the expansion to go with the original game because we like to play this game when our family gets together. It is so much fun.

My brother introduced us to the original and my husband and I love to play strategy games. It is a great game to play with friends and family. We like that the board is always different and that there is some luck involved with the dice. It adds to the fun. We also like to come up with our own variations and rules since we use the Seafarers of Catan as well. I was surprised at how well they adapted the 5-6 player version. It actually does not slow the game down to add more players since you are allowed to build between other player’s turns. It really encourages more trading and helps you not to lose your cards as often when the seven is rolled.
