Settlers of Catan Game
In this game, you control a group of settlers trying to tame the wilds on remote but rich island of Catan. Start by revealing the island's many port sites and regions: plains, meadows, mountains, hills, forests and desert. The random mix of hexagonal region tiles creates a different board for virtually every game! Then embark on a quest to settle the island. Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Instead of money, you use combinations of resources - grain, wool, ore, brick and timber - to purchase development cards or build roads, settlements and cities. Acquire your resources through trades or the luck of the dice. But beware! Someone might cut off your road or buy a monopoly! And you never know when the robber will appear and steal away with your precious gains! Includes 37 hexagonal region tiles, 20 settlement pieces, 16 city pieces, 60 road pieces, 95 resource cards, 25 development cards, 4 building cost cards, 2 special bonus cards, 18 die cut counters, 2 six-sided dice, 1 wooden pawn and instructions. For 3 or 4 players. Developed by Klaus Teuber, Settlers of Catan was honored as the German Game of the Year for 1995 and US Board Game of the Year for 1996.
