In The Settlers of Catan, you control a group of settlers trying to tame the wilds on the remote but rich isle of Catan. Start by revealing Catan's many harbors and regions: plains, meadows, mountains, hills, forests & desert. The random mix creates a different board virtually every game.
Embark on a quest to settle the isle of Catan! Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Use resource combinations - grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber - to buy development cards and build roads, settlements, and cities. Acquire your resources through trades or lucky dice. But beware! Someone might cut off your road or buy a monopoly! And you never know when the wily robber might steal away with your precious gains! (from the back of the box)
