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. Along the way, you befriend alien civilizations who might become valued trading partners.
Increase your resource production to build new transport ships and spaceports. Equip yourself against the lurking danger of space pirates. Many exciting encounters await you!
Twenty years ago, the settlers have already started into the depths of the galaxy to discover unknown planets. This completely revised reissue of the classic The Starfarers of CATAN contains atmospheric illustrations, refined rules, and redesigned game components.
The undiscovered universe lies before you and the new variable game plan brings even more variety. Maybe you can find planets with good ore or carbon deposits. But maybe you discover barren ice planets. Or you encounter alien folks and start lucrative trading, while pirates and wormholes are a constant challenge.
Davo from AsmodeeLive gives a quick and entertaining overview of the newly-released reboot of CATAN – Starfarers.
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!
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.
