Settling, trading, and building are the keys to success. Skillfully place settlements and roads, haggle with your friends for resources, and cleverly use the robber to block hexes. Just like in the board game, strategic thinking is required to prevail against your opponents.
Catan, previously known as Settlers of Catan is a multiplayer boardgame, where each player takes on the role of settlers, with the aim of building and growing settlements by trading and getting resources. The isle of Catan is rich and remote, with many harbours and regions including pastures, fields, mountains, hills, forests, and desert. What makes the game so compelling is that no two games are the same because the board can be set up differently every time.
Since the release of CATAN (at that time still The Settlers of CATAN) in 1995, the game has developed into a modern classic that is available worldwide in over 40 languages. To date, over 35 million games have been sold.
With numerous extensions and additions, everyone can create their own personal gaming experience and immerse themselves in the world of CATAN in new ways.
Picture yourself in the era of discoveries: after a long voyage of great deprivation, your ships have finally reached the coast of an uncharted island. Its name shall be Catan!
Finally, a jump to the stars has succeeded! It is the middle of the 3rd millennium. You and your fellow Catanians travel in spaceships to distant planetary systems in search of more resources.
You take on the role of Brothers of the Night’s Watch and use these resources to strengthen your hold on the north by building roads, settlements, and keeps; recruiting guards for your patrol; or buying development cards.
