Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Elasund? The little settlement on the coast? Well, those days are long gone. Elasund is growing rapidly and Catanians are streaming into the city, eager to make a fortune. You are appointed to help the city develop. You heed the call to drive the city's growth and prosperity forward. You have already hired workers and acquired bulding materials. What will your next building project be? And, just as important, where will it be? You are not the only developer in town, so you will need to be savvy and resourceful. Your competition is eager to outperform you and claim all of the credit. Fortunately, you'll get the hand of this business quickly. Despite having limited resources early on you have enough gold to construct your first few small buildings. Your influential connections will provide you with all the necessary building permits. Once a building is constructed, it can start generating gold or influence for your use. Soon this flow of materials will allow you to start going after bigger projects. You may even become involved in the construction of the town church or the city walls. But beware of your competitors. They may try to leverage their way into your neighborhood with their own permits. If you don't watch themclosely enough, they might even attempt a hostile takeover of your buildings. Will you emerge as Elasuand's most influential city developer? Find out in this new Catan adventure.

This game has just the right mix of strategy, randomness, and backstabbing to make it fun. You have to be careful, though. too much backstabbing and your wife will never play it with you again! There are multiple strategies you can use to try and win, such as being the first to start the building of the church which will inevitably destroy your opponents' (or your) buildings if they lie in it's path. Or you can concentrate on the city walls which will net you extra cards when pirates attack. or maybe you can just go for the straightforward approach and just start trying to build as much as possible and hope your opponents don't steal your building permits. The randomness is just a roll of the dice but you can manipulate the outcome of that depending on how much influence you have. I mentioned backstabbing earlier; you can use your opponent's building permits against them. This is a game where come-from-behind victories can be common if people take advantage of influence and let other players unwittingly help them build.

This game is a lot of fun.

Learning Curve and Pace:
After a short learning curve (10 minutes if you have a teacher, 20-30 minutes if you have to read the instructions), the gameplay moves quickly. In games with less players (this game supports 2-4) the city board is made smaller to keep things competitive and keep the pace fast.

Gameplay:
Players take turns building buildings, walls, or a temple in the city of Elasund. Different buildings give you different benefits: gold, influence, or victory points (or some combination of these). Each turn begins with a dice roll that determines which row in the city has a shipment arriving this turn. If your buildings are on that row, you collect gold or influence for that building.
Gold and influence are both used to build more buildings or to knock down opponents buildings and replace them with larger ones of your own.
In typical Catan fashion - the winner is the first player to earn 10 victory points

Overall:
This game is unique and a lot of fun. It has a few shout-outs that Catan fans will apprectiate.
One of the better games out there that supports 2 player play.

My son picked this game out as a reward for good behavior. The entire family enjoyed this! Not terribly long but a good game for an evening with family or friends.
