Players are recent immigrants to the newly populated island of Catan. Expand your colony through the building of settlements, roads, and villages by harvesting commodities from the land around you. Trade sheep, lumber, bricks and grain for a settlement, bricks and wood for a road, or try to complete other combinations for more advanced buildings, services and specials.
Trade with other players, or at local seaports to get resources you might lack. The first player to achieve 10 points from a combination of roads, settlements, and special cards wins.
Playing Time: 60-90 minutes
Best game I have played in a long time. Each time you play it's different and no one strategy wins.
Like mixing Risk with Monopoly. Love it.
I play this game with my children and grandchildren. We all love it. Bought it for my 10 year old grandson for Christmas. It was the top of his Christmas list.
Great game. Most people that I played with liked it! Has a good balance between strategy and ease of play.
Great game. This has become our family favorite. The board is different each game and with the expansion packs you can add even more variety.
FAN TAS TIC. The wife was sneaky and won the first game, my daughter the second. They love it. Can't wait for the Star Trek version!!!
The best board game to introduce to first time gamers and also fun for the more serious types.
Quick shipping, excellent price, and arrived in excellent condition. The hex pieces didn't quite fit in the border at first so I made sure to file the nubs and it was fine after.
Arrived reasonably quickly considering the delivery time other online stores gave me. Also, i found that the price is unmatched across the internet.
Over all, great quality. Loved the amount of awareness i had of the product in the delivery cycle, as well as the amount of protection given to the product in the packaging.
Aside: be very careful when punching the cardboard area pieces out so that you don't rip the artwork/leave the nubs on. If done incorrectly, the board will not fit together well.
Came quickly, arrived in perfect condition, and one of the lowest prices I could find online. An excellent board game and a great way to spend a fun evening with friends. Doesn't take too long to learn and has enough variation to the play that it doesn't get boring and repetitive. very happy with my purchase.
We love this game, it is similar to Monopoly and Risk. Strategy involved! Our kids were introduced to it when they lived in Taiwan where it is very popular with the Ex Pat youth. If you enjoy board games, this is a MUST have!
Fantastic risk replacement, so much more deep. One of the best strategy board games to come out in a long time.
Great strategic game! Doesn't take forever to play and each time you play it's a bit different. I highly recommend this game if you like games that make you think!
We were very happy to receive this very quickly for a game night we were having with friends! Fabulous service!! And what a great game too! ;)
I've played this game many times before at peoples houses and LOVE it! I knew I had to have one of my own and well.ca had the best price that I could find anywhere! I havent played my new game just yet but I can't wait to invite people over for a game night!
Great game for those of you who like to think and be strategic. Strongly recommend for anyone who enjoys board games.
great service, very pleased. Quality of paint on pieces not as good as I've seen, however (thin and spotty.)
Product complete on delivery, however. No major complaints
Great service. Good website. Good customer service. Unfortunately the only small problem was the game was missing a piece. Not Well.ca 's fault but a little bit of a let down for a consumer. I will purchase from you again though!
It took a little while to learn the game at first, but after a round of playing, you'll realize how easy it is to remember the rules, and then you'll want to play it again and again because this game can get you quite competitive! Extremely fun, requires just the right amount of brain power so it neither bores you nor drains you.
A must play for all those that have an interest in board games. With so many ways to play and the dynamic layout of the 'field', this game will keep you and three others entertained for a long time. With creative strategies and unique ways to become victorious, a lot of thought is required to figure out your opponents' strategies and stop them before it's too late. Even then, the simple rules allow for new players to quickly get up to speed. While the air can get heated, it is all just for fun. Definitely a must for all lovers of board games.
We ordered this game 3 weeks before Christmas. It arrived at our house in 4 days, the shipping was free, and the price was way better than a local game store (and cheaper than anybody else on the net). The fastest internet order ever! I don't know much about Well.ca, but I would recommend them to anybody!
