Game Spotlight: Settlers of Catan
If you have yet to play this amazing game, get to it as soon as possible! Catan is considered a classic within the board game community, and is often one of the first non-traditional board games people play.
Settlers of Catan is a resource management game, where you play as a brand new settler to the island of Catan. Each player takes it in turn to roll two dice, and whichever number is the result, the tile with that number on it produces resources! Players can only gain access to these resources by building towns and cities nearby, and these are built using (yep, you guessed it!) resources.
Players strive to amass a large settlement across the island, to enable them to gain resources quickly and to earn 10 victory points to win. Each game is different than the last, as tile placements are randomised each game, so those with the keenest mind and best strategy win!
This game is great for almost everyone, from pre-teens all the way to elderly! Rules are simple to pick up, with enough depth to entertain for hours. Expansions that add new mechanics and features are also available to further change up the gameplay.
