Description

Picture yourself in the era of discoveries: after a long voyage of great deprivation, your ships have finally reached the coast of an uncharted island.

Its name shall be Catan! But you are not the only discoverer. Other fearless seafarers have also landed on the shores of Catan – the race to settle the island has begun!

The women and men of your expedition build the first two settlements. Fortunately, the yet uninhabited land is rich in natural resources. You build roads and new settlements that eventually become cities. Will you succeed in gaining supremacy on Catan? Barter trade dominates the scene. Some resources you have in abundance, other resources are scarce. Ore for wool, brick for lumber – you trade according to what is needed for your current building projects. Proceed strategically! If you found your settlements in the right places and skillfully trade your resources, then the odds will be in your favor. But your opponents are smart too.

First published in Germany in 1995 as Die Siedler von CATAN, then in English as The Settlers of CATAN in 1996, CATAN celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2020.

To begin the game, you build the game board using hexagonal terrain tiles. Catan is born – a beautiful island with mountains, pastures, hills, fields, and forests, surrounded by the sea.

Each of you places two small houses on spaces where three terrain hexes meet. They are your starting settlements.

And so it begins. The starting player rolls two dice. An “11!” Each terrain hex is marked with a number. Each player who owns a settlement adjacent to a terrain hex marked with the number rolled receives a resource produced by this hex. Hills produce brick, forests produce lumber, mountains produce ore, fields produce grain, and pastures produce wool.

You use these resources to expand across Catan: you build roads and new settlements or upgrade your existing settlements to cities. For example, a road costs 1 brick and 1 lumber. If you do not have the necessary resources, you can acquire them by trading with your opponents.

Each settlement is worth 1 victory point and each city is worth 2 victory points. If you expand cleverly, you may be the first player to reach 10 victory points and thus win the game!

Catan 5th Edition

This is a great family game for my daughters, one is 10 years old, the younger one is 8 years old.

My 10 years old one seems addicted to this game, she keeps asking me “ Dad, can we play Catan today?”

Usually we can play together in 1 to 1.5 hours, all quality time with kids. As I don’t really follow their netflix episodes, playing board game like this is great alternative when staying at home.

Highly recommended.
