Play an immigrant on the newly populated island of Catan. Build settlements, roads and villages by taking commodities from the land around you. Turn sheep, lumber, rocks and some grain into a settlement; bricks and wood into road; or try to complete other combinations for more advanced buildings and services. Take advantage of trades with other players, or at local seaports to get commodities you might lack. The first player to gain ten points from a combination of roads, settlements and special cards wins.

In this award-winning board game for three or four players, Catan is an imaginary unexplored island, and players are explorers and settlers. The playing surface is made of hexagonal tiles that, depending on their placement, create a different environment each time the game is played. Settlers must use their resources to develop their island home, building roads and houses to create new towns. But watch out! There’s a robber on the island, and that renegade can show up at any time to steal your valuable resources.

The game includes a rules booklet, a game almanac (with examples and advanced rules), cardboard hexagonal tiles, a plastic game sheet, small wooden markers (for settlements, cities, and roads), playing cards, and wooden dice. Settlers of Catan takes only 15 minutes to learn, and the game can be played in a simple version for beginners or in a more complex version for experienced players. –Marcie Bovetz

In fact, I am told that this game is the (worldwide) 3rd best selling game of the last decade. It’s really a shame it hasn’t quite reached the American mass market.

A game with endless varations – most variables of any game! Settlers of Catan is a very unique game. It is very easy to learn but hard to master the subtleties of the game. It has several things that make this game unique. The main thing that makes this game unique is that the board can be different each time you play the game. The five land types that each produce a different resource are shuffled each time you play the game. So the board ends up being different each time the game is played. Another variable is the numbers that you lay down on the land types. The numbers are also shuffled each time. When you roll the dice, what ever number comes up, the land or lands with that number on it produce their resource – regardless of who’s turn it is. So you opponents can actually help you on their turn. A third variable is ports. If you have a settlement on a port you can trade two of one type of resource you have for one you need with the bank. Normally you have to trade four of one resource, to get the one resource you…
