What It Is

On your next family game night, take a trip to the mythical world of Catan. The Settlers of Catan is a strategy game where players collect resources and use them to build roads, settlements, and cities on the way to victory.

Players roll dice to determine which resources are generated each round and then must strategically trade those resources with other players to get what they need to build. With multiple ways to gain victory points and a board that's always changing, Settlers of Catan can be played a different way each time.

This engaging game, for three to four players, includes six sea frame pieces, 19 terrain hexes, nine harbor pieces, 18 circular number tokens, 126 game cards, 16 cities, 20 settlements, 60 roads, two dice, a robber, and a rules and almanac booklet. For beginning players, the rules of the game are fairly easy to learn but, if you need help, turn to the handy rules booklet for reminders about certain aspects of game play. Because The Settlers of Catan's board changes with each game, even the most advanced players will always be kept on their toes. This is a great game that gets friends and families having fun and spending time together.
