The game that took the nation by storm. Catan plays like a compelling blend of Monopoly and Risk. Players claim territory from which they get resource cards each roll. Then use these commodities as currency to barter with opponents or build into new territory, in turn, giving them more resource cars per roll. Settler first to reach the expansion threshold wins. Trade with all, trust in none. The expansion set to the original. Increases play to 5-6 players with an extra flank of board tiles and two more sets of game pieces.
