If you get bored of playing standard rules, add in some fishes, barbarians, caravans, rivers, or trading to keep boredom away from you. The Event Cards are not as random as the dice but it gives random events to whatever you rolled.

My boyfriend and I play this in the two player mode and its really great. It takes a bit of getting used to after playing with other people, but its great that there is now a decent way to play with just the two of us. We plan to go on and buy the rest of the expansions as well.

There are a lot of rules and that's saying a lot for a game like Catan. It's not my favorite expansion. Seafarers or Cities and Knights are a lot better.

The final expansion (I've heard of, at least), and instead of adding one new aspect, like "Sea Travelers" or "Cities and Knights," this expansion is actually a consolidation of about ten scenarios--ranging from caravans, moveable knights, barbarians, trade wagons, and fishing. Personally, I think the scenarios somewhat simplistic and combine them, but they are all fun by themselves as well. A novel aspect to Settlers of Catan once you've tired of the original game play, "Traders and Barbarians" allows new strategies and pieces. However, the actual amount of new pieces is minimal (with only a few new resource tiles), and I wish I could've gotten a little bit more for the amount of money I spent. If you can find a deal on it then definitely buy it, but I'd be wary of putting down the full price for just a few new adventures that aren't as thorough or well thought out as "Sea Travelers" or "Cities and Knights."

Settlers of Catan is great fun. The expansion is equally great. Traders and Barbarians provides five new game scenarios, ranging from just slightly more involved than the original to some of the most advanced and complex board game play I've seen. This expansion also introduces Event cards to (optionally) replace the dice, along with other fun stuff that provides range of new options for both the expansion and original. The rules for two-person play also increase the diversity of this game, even though 3-4 person play remains best. This expansion is a great addition to the game, especially for those who have mastered the original and are looking for more complexity.

We've only tried a couple of the variations so far, but this expansion pack has much more in it than I expected. It's the first expansion pack I've purchased for Catan and I wasn't expecting to get so much. There are 4 or 5 completely different variations to the main game plus several variations on the main game and the expansions. Catan is a great family game and now it's like having 6 games in one. We look forward to trying out all the different scenarios.

For those who are familiar with Settlers of Catan, this adds several new ways to play the game. It's fun, but probably not as essential as the "Seafarers" expansion.

My brother in law and my sister and I all LOVE this game it is so fun and so addicting because you can gradually add more and more pieces and steps to make the fun last longer. HOwever i ordered form warehouse deals Inc. and they promised me all the pieces but we ended up missing 3 or 4 pieces and considering it was a christmas present to my brother in law I was really disappointed to hear that from him. Great Game worth the money IF you get all the pieces!

We have the family edition of Settlers ( I guess that's code for the easy version) and this expansion pack does not fit with it. So not able to play unless we go buy a new version
