Game's details

Tonight at game time, set upon an untamed island and immediately begin the race against one another to be the most successful settler.

In the imaginative, strategy-driven CATAN board game, you and your game night comrades must compete with each other to become the first settler to build up your settlements and cities, own the longest roads, and develop the biggest armies on the island of Catan.

The colorfully illustrated game board and player cards allow your mind to be fully immersed in the natural world of this newly-discovered island.

Take turns with your opponents and roll the two six-sided dice to find out which areas of the island (“hexes”) produce natural resources, and hope that your settlements are next to those hexes. If so, you will receive  corresponding resource cards (grain, ore, brick, lumber, wool), which you can spend to build up your settlements. But you had better stay on guard and keep an eye out for the robber who moves around the board stealing precious resources that your civilization depends on!

Players earn points based on the number of settlements and cities they build, and by constructing the longest road, or largest army. The settler who first earns 10 victory points wins the game! Created for 3 to 4 players, age 10 years and older, with an average duration of 60 minutes, Catan is perfectly suited to star as the main event of your friends and family game night. CATAN is a game night staple that has been translated into more than 30 languages and is one of the most famous modern board games. Appreciated worldwide by board gamers looking for adventure and exciting competition, this is one imaginative strategy game that’s sure to entertain everyone in the family!
