Embark on a quest to settle the fair isle of Catan! Guide your brave settlers to victory by using clever trading and development. Use resources (grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber) to build roads, settlements, and cities, and buy development cards. Acquire your resources through trades or the role of the dice. But beware! You never know when someone might cut off your road or if the robber will appear and steal your precious gains. Are you the best trader, builder, or settler? Will you master Catan?
Designed for 3-6 players, this special, limited 15th Anniversary Wood Edition of The Settlers of Catan features a strong, compartmentalized box that contains: 52 thick, beautifully illustrated map hexagons, 144 specially designed playing pieces, six hexagonal building costs summaries, two special victory point markers, one vile robber, two dice, and 28 random number chits, all crafted from sturdy wood. The 154 cards, like the hexes, bear fine artwork from Michael Menzel.
