CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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.
● No two games are the same!
● Embark on a quest to settle the isle of Catan!
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.”

Top Customer Reviews
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.
Worth trying out if you have never played before.
Negatives - My copy didn't come with all the parts. Red and orange were not packed with any settlements.
After 20 years this bored is still very cheap. Very cheap materials and it's doesn't have a finish. This is my second copy this year because someone spilled something on it. The moment water or any other liquid touches this bored, it's destroyed. The crappy cheap cardboard pulls apart and disengrates on your table. Nothing like having a game at night with your friends and banning drinks and food while doing so. Thank god I kept the extra stuff from my last copy that didn't get destroyed. Made my new incomplete set complete. You would think after this long, they would at least have a deluxe edition with everything made out of treated wood with engravings. Game cost $50 at Walmart and prob cost $3 to make. Can we at least get it in plastic?
The game also only comes ready for 3-4 players to force you to buy an expansion for 5-6. On top of that, for every other edition you buy of this game (seafarers, knights, etc) this also only come ready for 3-4. You will be forced to buy expansions for the expansions for every version. Crazy to think that for 5-6 players, and 3 versions of the game, you can spend up to $200.
Overall review- amazing game that is worth buying on Amazon as long as it's $30 still,!($50 for 5-6 players), and it comes with the parts it should. Needs some serious updates. If you have the option and know someone that does plastic work, or a woodworker, spend $100-$200 and make your own custom bored and parts with your own engraved designs. More bank for the buck.
