One of the most successful board games of all time, Settlers of Catan is a trading and building game set in the mythical world of Catan.
Players assume the roles of settlers, each attempting to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. Players are rewarded points as their settlements grow and the first to reach a set number of points is the winner.
The board consists of 19 terrain hexes surrounded by the ocean. Each type of terrain produces a different type of resource: brick, wool, ore, grain or lumber. There's also a desert hex that produces no resources – this is where the robber, a resource thief, can be placed. As the game progresses, players use resources to build roads along the edges of these hexes and settlements or cities on the intersections where three hexes meet.
The rules are straightforward and include plenty of illustrations. There's a starting map that shows a well-balanced set-up for beginners to follow and directions that allow more advanced players to lay out the map of the island at random. Either you customise your board or go with the simple setup, guaranteed no game will be the same.
