"Faultless! A perfectly designed board game and loads of FUN!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

We recently purchased this board game and it has become an instant hit with everyone, from an 8 year old to a 50 year old!

If you are worried about reading and learning pages of rules, don't! The rules are spread over 4 pages with plenty of colourful diagrams, which makes it clear and easy to understand. I have often put a board game away simply because the rules were poorly written or just far too long and complicated to learn. This is not the case here.

The beauty of this game is that behind the simple rules lies a game of cunning strategy, with a dose of luck. There are multiple ways to win and you need to be wary of what others are trying to do.

One thing that makes this game stand out from most others is ‘player involvement’. Even if it is not your turn, you collect resources based on opponents dice throws and can trade with the player who is throwing the dice. You are constantly involved which is a big plus if, like me, you get bored, waiting for your turn, in most other board games.

Another big point of difference is the often hilarious verbal exchanges on nearly every turn as players try to secure the best trade they can based on their hand of resource cards.

The game lasts around 90 minutes which is perfect as it allows the option to play ‘one more game’.

Also, the hexagonal tile design means that every game will be slightly different as the tiles can be arranged randomly.

At $70+ this game is well worth the money. It will bring friends and family together in a way only board games can. It will cost less than a group outing to the movies and be on your shelf forever, ready to be played again and again.

"The greatest game I have ever played"
5 stars"

This game absolutely revolutionized my evenings, social life and in general my lifestyle. It involves a complex interplay of both strategy as well as pure chance, and no two games are the same. This is the base game and the extensions further enhance this great game, although it in itself is of utmost quality and in recent times has superceded RISK as the most exciting, and strategic oriented board game I have ever played.

"Great game with friends, or the family"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fantastic game. Lots to do when it's not your turn. You win by being the fastest builder – you don't have to grind everybody else down, so it's still fun if you lose. Only two main pages of rules, but lots of scope for strategy, if you're that way inclined…

Catan Board Game (5th edition) – Winner of “Game of the Century” award!

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! But you are not the only discoverer. Other fearless seafarers have also landed on the shores of Catan: the race to settle the island has begun!

  • 3–4 Players, 60 minute playing time
  • Tons of replay value
  • New graphics, board and cards
  • Expanded Rule Book

Catan (aka The Settlers of Catan) has been awarded with “Game of the Year,” “Hall of Fame,” and even “Game of the Century” honors in Germany, the United States, and a host of other countries worldwide. An international favorite, it’s been called the “Perfect Social Game.”

The women and men of your expedition build the first two settlements. Fortunately, the land is rich in natural resources. You build roads and new settlements that eventually become cities. Will you succeed in gaining supremacy on Catan? Barter trade dominates the scene. Some resources you have in abundance, other resources are scarce. Ore for wool, brick for lumber – you trade according to what is needed for your current building projects. Proceed strategically! If you found your settlements in the right places and cleverly trade your resources, then the odds will be in your favor. But your opponents are smart too…
