Makes Settlers even better If you’re reading this, you no doubt are already a fan of Settlers of Catan. You’re deliberating, trying to decide if you want to shell out more $ for this expansion. “Is it worth it?”, you ask.

A simple, great expansion for Settlers of Catan The Settlers of Catan is a fantastic game, and it would seem that in the board game world that means that a sequel was inevitable. So, eventually the Seafarers of Catan (Kosmos and Mayfair Games, 1997 – Klaus Teuber) was released. It was a fitting expansion, and so simple were the add-on rules, that I almost always include it in with the base game. The game offers very few more choices with the expansion included, and the amount of scenarios included with the book are excellent; some of them are truly fun! The Seafarers expansion adds a number of things to the base game, including…1.) Gold Fields: These are basically “wild” hexes that produce whatever resource the player wants if they have a settlement or a city bordering them. This makes the gold fields very valuable, with everyone wanting a piece of the action. The scenarios counter this by putting gold fields in hard to reach places, with less than an optimal number on them, like a “3”. Still, it doesn’t stop me from…

Chris Peters says:

Worthy expansion to the original game Seafarers is a wonderful expansion, in that it adds new material to Settlers of Catan without destroying the wonderful game that it is. The ability to build ships as ocean-bound roads and “sail” to far away islands is great, and fits perfectly within the fictional world of Catan. You won’t stop playing the original game, but rather you’ll probably prefer a nice mix of original Settlers and Seafarers.
