Your adventurous settlers seek to tame the remote but rich isle of Catan. Start by revealing Catan's many harbors and regions: pastures, fields, mountains, hills, forests, and desert. The random mix creates a different board virtually every game. Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Use resource combinations- grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber-to buy handy development cards and build roads, settlements, and cities. Acquire your resources through trades,cards, or lucky dice (even outside your turn). But beware! Someone might cut off your road or buy a monopoly. And you never know when the wily robber might steal some of your precious gains! Catan((aka The Settlers of Catan) has been awarded with "Game of the Year," "Hall of Fame," and even "Game of the Century" honors in Germany, the United States, and a host of other countries worldwide. An international favorite, it's been called the "Perfect Social Game." Catan contains: 19 unique hexagonal terrain tile, 6 coastal frame pieces, 9 extra harbor pieces, 20 wooden settlements, 16 wooden cities, 60 wooden roads, 95 resource cards, 25 development cards, 4 building costs cards, 2 special bonus cards, 18 number tokens, 2 six-sided dice, 1 wooden robber pawn, simple rules & almanac.

Your spouse will become a tricky, sneaky person you hardly recognize. While you will plot ways to take over.
Side effects include: less tv watching, more under the table kicking, spontaneous manical laughter, snacking while plotting the demise of your friends and family. Best fun you've had in hours!
LEARNING CURVE: This game is extraordinarily simple and straightforward to learn. Played once through, it makes plenty of sense and opens doors to more complex rules and gameplay.
GAME SPEED: 1-2 hours for 4 players. Game moves briskly but with obvious early-, mid-, and end-game stages that each have their own strategies and approaches. Game easily resumed from a paused state if you take a break.
GAMEPLAY OVERALL: Catan is satisfying to play, even more satisfying to win. As a game best played with a poker face and a good set of bluffing skills, Catan rewards long-term foresight and strategies more than rushed or brute-forced gameplay techniques. Catan can become repetitive IF and ONLY IF you refuse to play randomly. I highly recommend players who have a few games under their belt learn to completely randomize the map, starting positions, and resource entitlement for more satisfying experiences.
APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS? Depends on your child. Children with a knack for puzzles and strategy games will find playing Catan with adults to be very rewarding. Probably a bit too complex for children to play with each other, however; too many "honor system" concepts in play, too easy to cheat each other.
APPROPRIATE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS? Gameplay can easily be catered for adults or children with special needs. Game rules are insanely simple and easily modified for those wanting additional assistance. Communities online for adapting Catan gameplay are prevalent and easily found.
CONCLUSION: Catan is a fantastically easy game to pick up and learn, but complex and difficult to master. Catan is a game best suited to be expanded and enhanced, as the base game is truly just the first step into the world of Catan.
I will update this and let you all know if I am able to get a replacement.
I purchased two copies. One from Amazon and one from a third party. The copy from a third party was seven dollars cheaper. That's because it's a pirated and thoroughly illegal copy.
And man what a copy it is. Almost perfect. But look at the photographs attached (pirate copy on the right) and you will see misspellings all over the back of the box like 'strart by revealing Catan's' and 'No two games ard the same.' The colors are slightly different. The pirated copy contained twice as many orange road pieces as it was supposed to and was missing a white road. Additionally, the pieces were rough.
Outside of that the pirated copy contained stickers, promotional material, the works! Very deceptive.
1) The pieces all have tags from where the pieces were cut apart which wasn’t the way my other games from retailers didn’t have.
2) artwork is completely different which is not terrible but the artwork on the other games I’ve bought was nicer than this artwork.
3) the colorations of the pieces are different and it’s apparent where the blue pieces meet around the border.
4) the pieces don’t even fit together very well at all. I had to work on pieces to get them to fit but even still after working the pieces together the board doesn’t lay flat so pieces in the middle move around which is frustrating.
5) the players “building costs” cards are color matches to the pieces but I received red, white, blue & YELLOW pieces while my building cost cards are red, white, blue & ORANGE.
6) one of the white roads is shorter than the rest
I’m pretty disappointed because I can’t return now since we didn’t open it right away and I really like this game normally but now it just looks like a cheap imitation
