Settlers of Catan Strategy | Trade, Build, Settle
Settlers of Catan. The “gateway” that brought a lot of people to the world of board games. It is a very addicting game revolved around strategy and puts your social skills to the test. A game with a pun ready to be used in every sentence, this game will get your gears going. This game can be played up to 3-4 people, but there is also an expansion as well. The more people there are, the more longer the game will be. Games with 3 people usually last up to 45 minutes while a game of 4 can last up to an hour. Maybe even longer! There is also an expansion available for 6 players. It revolves around building settlements, collecting resources, and trading. These are huge features of the game and must be utilized to its potential. Everyone battles it out to collect 10 points, which may sound little, but can only be achieved through hard work and good strategy.
One thing I love about Settlers of Catan is the strategy involved in it. Settlers of Catan strategy can different in every situation. There are so many ways to go in this game. Once you start playing this game, you may have a good chance of being addicted. Some friends may be lost just a fair warning ???? It can get quite intense so don’t say I didn’t warn you. If you love the concept of Monopoly or any other game where you are building something from the ground up, this is your game. Winning the game is really satisfying, because of all the time you invested in your settlements and resources. This is a game of endurance and wits. If you have what it takes, this is your game.

Side effects include: less tv watching, more under the table kicking, spontaneous manical laughter, snacking while plotting the demise of your friends and family. Best fun you’ve had in hours!
While it may be pretty pricey, the board game is quite durable. It’ll last you a VERY long time and the items inside are quite difficult to lose.
