Let us help each other. We live in a time of altruism on Catan. We give away resources to help lagging players. We move the robber to isolated locations to ensure the safety of our fellows. We even go out of our way to connect our roads with our neighbors networks. Has everyone gone nuts?Ah! Thanks to their beneficence, Catans’ guilds reward such noble-minded behavior by handing out Favor Tokens (FTs). Each guild helps us in different ways: granting us roads, development cards, random resources, preferential trades, or even.Victory Points.Everyone is just in it for themselves. There is an ulterior motive for everything. In fact, sometimes you can help a friend while making things far worse for them.(Sigh)If goodwill really exists, it is not part of this scenario.

Let me help you help me more 🙂 I really like these short Catan expansions, such as the Fishermen’s of Catan, Harbormaster, Event cards in the Traders and Barbarians of Catan expansion. And now this Frenemies. They add a small addition of options to the game without the feel of dumping a boatload of new rules onto the game and making it longer and complicated. In Frenemies, you help your opponents by not attacking them when you roll a ‘7’, connecting your road to theirs, offering them a resource card. They will love you, until they see you leapfrog past with your collection of favor tokens. Oh the favor tokens… they allow you to trade a resource (up to twice per turn), take a free resource, build a free road, grab a development card, even pick up a VP along the way. This is something we will incorporate in our games, along with the variants I have spoke of in my other reviews (Tournament Set up, Welfare variant, Fishermen’s, Event card, Harbormaster, etc).I’m sure as long as Settlers of Catan has…

Great addition to the settlers of Catan series This scenario is a really fun one to add to your collection of settlers of Catan games especially for the person who likes to sit back and wait until the last moment to shoot ahead and win before anyone else realizes what they’re doing
