- The women and men of your expedition build the first two settlements. Fortunately, the land is rich in natural resources. You build roads and new settlements that eventually become cities. Will you succeed in gaining supremacy on Catan?
- Barter trade dominates the scene. Some resources you have in abundance, other resources are scarce. Ore for wool, brick for lumber - you trade according to what is needed for your current building projects.
- Proceed strategically! If you found your settlements in the right places and cleverly trade your resources, then the odds will be in your favour. But your opponents are smart too.
Picture yourself in the era of discoveries: after a long voyage of great deprivation, your ships have finally reached the coast of an uncharted island. Its name shall be Catan! But you are not the only discoverer. Other fearless seafarers have also landed on the shores of Catan: the race to settle the island has begun!

To begin the game, we build the game board with hexagonal terrain tiles. Catan is now born - a beautiful island with mountains, pastures, hills, fields, and forests, surrounded by the sea.
We each place two small houses on spaces where three of these terrain hexes meet, as our starting settlements.
And so it begins. I roll two dice. An “11”! Each terrain hex is marked with a die roll number. Each player who owns a settlement adjacent to a terrain hex marked with the number rolled receives a resource produced by this hex. Hills produce brick, forests produce lumber, mountains produce ore, fields produce grain, and pastures produce wool.
We use these resources to expand across Catan: we build roads and new settlements, or we upgrade our existing settlements to cities. For example, a road costs 1 brick and 1 lumber. If we do not have the necessary resources, we can acquire them by trading with our opponents.
Each settlement is worth 1 victory point and each city is worth 2 victory points. If you expand cleverly, you may be the first player to reach 10 victory points and thus win the game!

The game I received however was not up to the quality standards of the other sets I have played with.
Firstly, after having to snap all of the pieces out of a card frame I attempted to build the outer jigsaw of the board from the six outer pieces. This was harder than it appeared as the all felt like the came from different jigsaws! Did not align! Through brut force and willpower however, we managed to put the pieces together.
Secondly as we passed around the roads, settlements and cities it was noticed that 'orange' was actually yellow and that the painting on all the pieces was very dull and not up to the usually gloss standards of official sets.
Finally the roads, oh dear, it looked as if they pre-dated the Romans, they were all different lengths and some appeared to have subsided quite severaly (see photo of knots)!
I will be requesting my money back and a new official set to be sent, at which point I will happily change my review as this is a brilliant game deserving of a five star review.
Missing 15 roads: 10 orange and 5 red. So you can't play with it, that's why I returned it
Colours where different from the original: really hard to differentiate the Red and the Orange
Wrong printing: the printing was not matching the cutting lines so, for example, in half of my numbers you couldn't see the stars/dots indicating the probability
Poor material: the shape of the roads, settlements and cities was different. The case was really fragile and also the colours looked like old.
I woudn't recommend buying this product and I think Amazon should ban this supplier for offering a misleading product.
I bought my copy from a retailer called SDR Studio on Amazon, and while it was sealed and seemed to be a legit copy, with hindsight it was suspiciously cheap, and now I've got it open in front of me, the game components are various sizes and clearly very cheaply made and of a shoddy. Definitely a retailer to avoid, though I can't leave feedback as I'm outside the window, more's the shame. The board pieces do not fit together at all well, as I mentioned earlier, some of the pieces are missing.
Given the poor quality and missing pieces, I suspect that Catan is a game that is subject to counterfeiting, so I would urge you to buy only from Amazon and not from the marketplace. I'll make the missing wooden pieces and replace some of the uneven, poorly-painted pieces myself, but you shouldn't have to.
Do buy with care, these games are not cheap.
I would go so far as to say its the perfect "fun" board game for those graduating from Monopoly etc
Sure there is a fair bit of luck (good and bad) but that gives novices and kids the chance to beat "better" players. You can balance that if you want with the "welfare variant" rule (just google it). There is competition, but its not aggressive like Monopoly, everyone can compete but without being nasty - in many plays we have only had one proper barney caused by the game . . . :O
If you get hooked then definitely check out the Seafarers expansion and the Star Trek variant, both great fun too
Alas the game is so popular there are lots of fakes out there - which is why you will see so many 1 star reviews - the fakes use thin card, fuzzy printing with typos galore, poor/missing wooden parts etc etc. My top tip would be to get it direct from Amazon proper
I love this game. I've played the original version in German with friends several times. I've decided to buy my own copy. I'm disappointed with the manufacturing quality. The edge pieces don't fit properly, there are extra pieces of one colour, not enough of another and some pieces have defects or are broken.
I didn't even think it could be a fake/copy until reading other reviews.
It has remained perrenially popular for very good reasons.
