Product Description
The game that redefined board games. First published in 1995, Catan has delighted millions of families across the world with its fun and easy-to-learn gameplay. Players arrive as settlers on the island of Catan, rich with wood, stone, clay, wheat and sheep. Rolling dice to harvest those resources then making trades with their rivals, players develop their settlements into cities while building roads and hiring brave knights to defend their colony.

Catan won the coveted Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award in 1995 and its worldwide success helped to usher in a new ‘golden age’ of board games. Part of the Modern Classics range celebrating the must-have titles defining the industry, it remains as accessible and enjoyable as ever, with a wide range of expansions and spin-offs available for a new generation of fans to discover.

As the players build more roads out across the island, new settlements will be erected, and new resources gained. This will lead the player to gain victory points. The play continues until one player has established enough of a foothold on the island to gain 10 victory points and win the game.
How to Play
The game starts with placing the game titles on the table with the number tokens on each of the land squares. These tokens are each numbered from 2-12, skipping the 7. This number will determine the total needed to be rolled to produce that resource for that turn.  Each player will place two settlements with a road on any of the intersections on the board. The player will also receive the resources adjacent to the second settlement they placed and then the game begins. Each round goes as follows:
