    Beware! Don’t try this unless you plan on getting addicted. Your life will forever be altered. You’ll find yourself begging strangers to come over to play. Watching youtube videos to improve your game, bribing your children.
    Your spouse will become a tricky, sneaky person you hardly recognize. While you will plot ways to take over.
    Side effects include: less tv watching, more under the table kicking, spontaneous manical laughter, snacking while plotting the demise of your friends and family. Best fun you’ve had in hours!

    Fantastic for a base game; definitely look into expansions!, April 2, 2017

    This is the base game. I can’t emphasize that enough. This review will only handle the base game, minus expansions.

    LEARNING CURVE: This game is extraordinarily simple and straightforward to learn. Played once through, it makes plenty of sense and opens doors to more complex rules and gameplay.

    GAME SPEED: 1-2 hours for 4 players. Game moves briskly but with obvious early-, mid-, and end-game stages that each have their own strategies and approaches. Game easily resumed from a paused state if you take a break.

    GAMEPLAY OVERALL: Catan is satisfying to play, even more satisfying to win. As a game best played with a poker face and a good set of bluffing skills, Catan rewards long-term foresight and strategies more than rushed or brute-forced gameplay techniques. Catan can become repetitive IF and ONLY IF you refuse to play randomly. I highly recommend players who have a few games under their belt learn to completely randomize the map, starting positions, and resource entitlement for more satisfying experiences.

    APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS? Depends on your child. Children with a knack for puzzles and strategy games will find playing Catan with adults to be very rewarding. Probably a bit too complex for children to play with each other, however; too many “honor system” concepts in play, too easy to cheat each other.

    APPROPRIATE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS? Gameplay can easily be catered for adults or children with special needs. Game rules are insanely simple and easily modified for those wanting additional assistance. Communities online for adapting Catan gameplay are prevalent and easily found.

    CONCLUSION: Catan is a fantastically easy game to pick up and learn, but complex and difficult to master. Catan is a game best suited to be expanded and enhanced, as the base game is truly just the first step into the world of Catan.

    I loved the game, but the board was in terrible condition., May 29, 2017

    This review is from: Catan (Video Game)
    After playing this game with some friends, I absolutely loved it and wanted to buy my own game. It arrived yesterday and when I opened it up the quality of the game was in terrible condition. The board edges don’t even fit together properly making the game hard to setup and the hexagons are poorly cut and do not fit inside properly. I have to force the sides and hexagons in to get them to stay together. Some of the hexagons are printed poorly as well as you can see in the pictures. The pieces that came with it were in terrible condition as well, several roads were chipped and looked like they were cut in half and several of the house/cities were chipped and don’t even stand up. I also was sent a yellow set of pieces which is supposed to be orange, and the yellow set was missing 3 roads as there is supposed to be 15 roads per color. I was looking forward to playing this game, but the board set I was sent was in terrible condition and made me feel like I got ripped off.

    I will update this and let you all know if I am able to get a replacement.
