The best board game ever been invented
on January 20, 2015
The best board game ever been invented. Kids growing up playing this game will have a strategic thinking. The best thing about the Settlers is that the board changes every game. I got bored with Risk, Axes and Allies, Monopoly, even Blockus because the board is the same every time and it becomes rather predictable. It's the genius of the Settlers of Catan to have a board that totally changes for each game. It requires you to develop thinking skills and to learn to adapt to use a variety of different strategies to win this game. Very, very satisfied. By the way, my 7 year old daughter learned to play this game as well as my 11 year old son. They can really PLAY! So, it's not just for adults or teenagers. It can be for younger children. We don't let our kids play video/computer games, but let them play this game. It's a great family game. I bought the extension also. As a family of five, it's a lot of fun on weekends and holidays! While most other people just watch TV or play video games and they all do their own thing on their own device, we get to talk, engage, and have a lot of fun playing this game together as a family! Each game will take 1-2 hour. Our fastest game was 35 minutes, and longest two hours.
