Gameday First Play – The Settlers of Catan
I finally got to play The Settlers of Catan.
In Settlers of Catan, players try to be the dominant force on the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads. On each turn dice are rolled to determine what resources the island produces. Players collect these resources to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game.
So not much more need me said about this game. They played it on Tabletop so if you want to know how to play it, Wil Wheaton can show you.
I didn’t like the dice rolling, but, I did like trying to build to make the dice roll more in your favour.
I didn’t like that I could never get stone as I was blocked off from it, but I did like trading for it.
I thought it was good, not great, just good. I can see why in 1995 when it was released it would have been a big deal.
