Introduce a clever and strategic board game to those family & friends game nights. Players look to collect resources before their opponents do. Use the resources you collect to expand into other new settlements by building roads. Players & opponents should look to trade & barter when it comes to Catan. Be sure to pick the perfect strategy that suits you best to ultimately have your small island town grow into a flourishing city. Roll the dice, trade, build and you may be the first player to reach 10 victory points and thus win the game!
This is a great game for family or friends...easy to learn, usually the one who seems to be winning, doesn't always win! Lots of strategies, multiple ways to win. Fun game. Last anywhere from 60-90 minutes in my experiences.
We have only played it a few times, but we are hooked. We are being taught by seasoned veterans of the game, so it is challenging to beat them. A very strategic game, so have to be on your toes. It is a great game and there are expansion packs to buy as well.
