You are the first settlers on the island of Catan. The island is rich with resources – timber, clay, wool, wheat and ore. Trade with your fellow settlers, build roads and cities, raises armies. But beware – the robbers can turn up at anytime. Grow your settlement until you are the largest on the island.
One of the most successful board games of recent times, Catan challenges you to make the most of your luck and strike the right deals at the right time to get control of those precious resources. The modular board design means no two games will ever be the same, so players will need to be flexible and not simply rely on tried and trusted strategies. The random element of the robber stops players stockpiling resources. Even someone with a clear lead cannot relax while the robber is around!
Catan has won multiple awards and sold millions of copies due to its amazing ability to appeal to experienced gamers as well as those new to the hobby.
