My only gripe (hence the 4-stars) is with the way Mayfair Games packages the cards. When I unpacked the cards, they stuck together and no matter how careful I was, some of the cards were de-faced. This is a problem Mayfair will need to work out on their end, however Amazon happily sent a replacement, which I have yet to see so hopefully they are better the second time around.
Great game! Will be a favorite in our house for years.
•Allows The Settlers of Catan to be played with official game rules and official game pieces by 3-6 people (standard board for 3-4 or standard board + extension for 5-6) instead of only 3-4.
•May add an interesting dimension to standard 4-player games (probably not 3-player) for those looking for a change (larger board).
•Matches The Settlers of Catan base game perfectly (since it is an official Mayfair Games product)
•Costs a few dollars less on Amazon than in stores
•For a game with cheaply made parts, requiring the purchase of this extension for 5-6 player games seems absurd. The Settlers of Catan ought to be sold as a 5-6 player kit – perhaps a "Family Edition for 5-6 Players" would suffice.
•Only allows for 5-6 players and not more
•This is fun, but it's overpriced.
•If you are not concerned with owning an extension using official Mayfair Games parts, you may be better off (financially speaking) assembling your own. Card stock, cardboard, wood, paint and/or crayons, and even plain paper that you happen to have lying around would work well for such a project.
•If you would like to play with 7-8 players, either buy another base game or build your own imitation of the base game that you already have. There are guides available on the web (discoverable via a quick Google search) with rule variants for 7-8 player games with two standard boards merged together.
Lastly, a list of pieces included in this extension may help you know better what you are buying and/or let you determine whether or not you would be interested in building your own:
You roll to see who goes first and then you lay out one settlement and one road per person going clockwise. The last person places two settlements and two roads and then the order reverses to where the player who went first puts down their second settlement last.
Each tile on the randomized board has a number that relates to a dice role and one of 5 resources. Some dice rolls, like 6 7 and 8, have a higher value in game because they have a higher chance of being rolled. But you must also be careful to have a good mix of all of the resources and not just a single one.
Once starting settlements have been placed, all players grab the resources adjacent to the second settlement they built. The game starts back with player 1 who roles the dice. Everyone collects resouces that are adjacent to any settlements they may have that correspond to that dice roll. Player one may build, buy a development card or pass the dice to the next player to continue the game.
A lot of this game comes down to luck, although there is some startegy in cutting players off and using development cards. After you've played a handful of times, you can almost immediately tell from the beginning who will win and thats kind of a bummer.
If they game didnt rely so heavily on luck, I would 5 star. This game is worth buying to have around, especially for new players. But for serious board gamers, you might try 7 wonders, puerto rico, pandemic or the like.
As always if you have any questions just ask and I'll get back to you.
