  • English Version | 3 to 4 Players | Ages 10+ | 60 Minute Playing Time

Reviews

  1. It arrived promptly but I was dissapointed to see that the tiles were poorly printed to the point I wonder if its even a real version! The counters are also painted in very similar colours so you can barely tell the red from the orange, different to that of my friends version, which is the same release year. 
  2. I have multiple variants of Catan. I didn't even realize that this version existed until I was looking up a rule and found a posting for the first edition. I saw that the second edition was on Amazon and I ordered it last week. It arrived a couple of days ago and I played it last night. The second edition fixes the problems of the first edition in terms of fragile pieces and stickers.

    Build quality is phenomenal. I would much rather pay $100+ for a game with quality pieces than something cheaply made. It builds on the concepts of the original Catan, but it is a fully new game - not a re-skinning. The way resources are generated, concepts of build/trade are the same. Rest of game is different.

    Multiple ways of getting victory points, so multiple strategies. You do not get blocked like in original Catan. No roads or seaways to build. It was really exciting to build ships and send them off. Next time we play we will do the variant that doesn't disclose the solar system/empty space until you explore - excited!

    It is a long game - the box states 2 hours to play. We played for 3 hours (all experienced Catan players, I had read through the rules and almanac before playing this version). The difference is that we had fun and momentum the whole time. It is not uncommon for a Catan game to start to drag at the end and you just want someone to win (and it is generally between two players with the others as also rans).

    The encounters were really fun. It is a bit like choose your own adventure and you do not know what will happen.

    My wife is not a big board game player, and she sat out the game last night. By the end of the playtime, she was excited to join us next time.
