Black clouds are accumulating over the enchanted island of Catan. Furious barbarians, drew in by the wealth of Catan, voyaged to approach the country. Luckily, warning has given Catan time to meet the danger. The size of the barbarian army equates to the number of cities in Catan. Thus, for Catan to fend off the barbarian attack, the players must build a knight force as strong as the barbarian force. Also the barbarians, players contend to establish the three great metropolises of Catan. Each of these glorious centers are worth two extra victory points.

To build a metropolis, players must invest in city betterments. To acquire these improvements, players must get the three new types of Trade Cards: Coinage, Paper, and Cloth. These cards can only be acquired by building a city next to mountain, forest, or pasture hexes. 2-4 Players, requires ownership of Settlers of Catan to play.

If you’ve bought the settlers of catan original game, I’m sure that you’ll fall in love with Cities and Knights of Catan expansion pack, if you buy this expansion pack then be prepared to spend more time to learn about the game, at the beginning you may have to stick with the manual to get the hang of it, but it’s worth it.

If you already have the Settlers of Catan, Cities and knights and now Seafarers. Then you will love The Seafarers of Catan.

The Seafarers of Catan is an expansion pack of the Settlers of Catan board game to add three to four players (five to six player play is also possible with both of the respective five to six player expansions). What Seafearers of Catan offers is the addition of ships to the game, this way you can play between multiple islands. The expansion also offers a lot of unique scenarios, some of which have custom rules. The Seafarers rules and scenarios are also, for the most part, compatible with the Cities and Knights of Catan expansion.

It’s just great to have ships and be able to reroute. there are two ways to block, either the soldier or the pirate. It will take awhile with 5-6 people but it’s a lot of fun. The only problem is it does not go with building cards so you need the original game building cards to know what resources are required for building.

When I first read about Mayfair the settlers of catan board game on the Penny Arcade blog, they appeared to like it very much, so I figured I’d try it out one day, and now I finally bought it (along with the Cities and Knights and Seafarer’s expansions) and played it with a friend of mine.

It appears a bit simple at first (a 20 or so grid board with wooden play pieces) and the rules seem perplexed but once you master it, the game becomes a lot of fun.

It’s basically a board/table-top edition of a small part of a Civ game. You’ve a grid of plots that each have different terrain.

You place numbered disks on each plot which represent to numbers on a 2d6 roll (2-12, except for 7).
