Catan Studio


Catan

In Catan (formerly The 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 (cards)—wood, grain, brick, sheep, or stone—to build up their civilizations to get to 10 victory points and win the game. Setup includes randomly placing large hexagonal tiles (each showing a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape and surrounding them with water tiles, some of which contain ports of exchange. Number disks, which will correspond to die rolls (two 6-sided dice are used), are placed on each resource tile. Each player is given two settlements (think: houses) and roads (sticks) which are, in turn, placed on intersections and borders of the resource tiles. Players collect a hand of resource cards based on which hex tiles their last-placed house is adjacent to. A robber pawn is placed on the desert tile. A turn consists of possibly playing a development card, rolling the dice, everyone (perhaps) collecting resource cards based on the roll and position of houses (or upgraded cities—think: hotels) unless a 7 is rolled, turning in resource cards (if possible and desired) for improvements, trading cards at a port, and trading resource cards with other players. If a 7 is rolled, the active player moves the robber to a new hex tile and steals resource cards from other players who have built structures adjacent to that tile. Points are accumulated by building settlements and cities, having the longest road and the largest army (from some of the development cards), and gathering certain development cards that simply award victory points. When a player has gathered 10 points (some of which may be held in secret), he announces his total and claims the win. Ages: 10+ | Players: 3 - 4 |  Playtime: 60 - 120 minutes

Catan : Cities and Knights Expansion

Catan Cities & Knights Expansion 5th Edition Flourishing trade brings prosperity to Catan. However, all this wealth also attracts barbarians. The knights of Catan are needed! The expansion can also be combined with “Seafarers” and “Traders & Barbarians.” Requires the Base Game to play. In comparison to the Catan base game, this expansion requires a little more tactical and strategic skill. Use the hexes of the Catan base game to assemble Catan within the provided frame. Each player has just built a settlement and a city, when dark clouds gather over the peaceful island of Catan. Wild barbarians, attracted by the wealth of Catan, sail toward the island's shores. There is still enough time to prepare for confronting the intruders, though. The strength of the hostile barbarian army always corresponds to the number of cities on Catan. In order to successfully defend Catan, the knights of all players combined must be at least as strong as the barbarian army. Knights are not being used in the form of cards; instead, they are represented by wooden tokens that are placed on free intersections. Each token has an “active” side depicting a black-and-white knight helmet and an “inactive” side depicting a knight helmet in color. A knight can only fight after he is activated; activation costs one grain. After paying said grain, the player turns the knight token over to its active side. Each ring on the token counts as one strength point. If the knights of all players combined have enough strength points to defeat the barbarian army, the danger is averted for the moment. However, if the Catanian knights are too weak, a city will be raided and downgraded to a settlement. This unfortunate event always affects the player who contributed the least amount of knight strength. Besides defending Catan, knights can also be used to chase away the robber or to displace another player’s knight. When the players are not busy defending Catan, they are competing for the metropolises, which represent two additional victory points. In order to establish a metropolis (which is placed on top of a city), the players first need to improve their cities. The construction of city buildings, such as the Library, Market, Abbey, or Town Hall, is indicated on development flip-charts. The players pay for city improvements with commodities such as coins, cloth, or books. How do you get commodities? Instead of two resources, cities adjacent to mountains, pasture, and forest hexes produce only one resource but also one commodity derived from the respective type of resource. With increasing city improvements, the odds become more favorable for players to obtain new progress cards. Cards such as “Mining,” “Irrigation,” or “Building Crane” allow for faster settlement activities. Cards such as “Merchant,” “Merchant Fleet,” “Trade Monopoly,” or “Resource Monopoly” create advantages with regards to trade. On the other hand, one can irritate stronger players with cards such as the “Deserter,” “Spy,” or “Diplomat.” Get used to a tougher life on Catan – and a longer but also more exciting game. The first player to reach 13 victory points is the winner. To play with 5–6 players, the 5–6 player extension is required.Ages: 12+ | Players: 3 - 4 |  Playtime: 90 - 120 minutes

Catan : Dice Game - Standard Edition

Would you like to play a game? The Catan Dice Game is great for play on-the-go or during those moments "in between." It is easy to learn and doesn’t take long to play. You can even play it as a single-player game. In the dice game version of “Catan,” you also build settlements, roads, cities, and knights. Here, however, building doesn't mean placing wooden or plastic game pieces on a game board. Instead, each player has a sheet depicting a smaller version of the island of Catan. You build by filling in the respective symbols for roads, knights, settlements, and cities. Building a road, settlement, or city costs the same resources as in the big brother version of the game, but the way you obtain the required resources is completely different. On your turn, you may roll 6 special dice up to three times. After each dice roll, you may either set aside part of the dice or roll all dice again. Each side of a die depicts one of Catan's resources: brick, lumber, wool, grain, ore, or gold.
For example, if you roll 2 lumber, 2 brick, 1 grain, and 1 wool, you may build - i.e., fill in - a road and a settlement. Of course, you also must observe certain rules when building. At the beginning of the game, the first road is already depicted as a built road. Starting from this road, you continue building more roads. Each road built is worth 1 point. The order in which settlements and cities must be built corresponds to the number of points they are worth, from low to high. The points for building a settlement increase from 3 to 11, and the points for building a city even rise from 7 to 30. Since you can build a city or settlement only adjacent to an already built road, you might often find yourself in a situation where you wonder whether you should build a city, which is more lucrative but more difficult to build, or a settlement, which is less lucrative but easier to build. And what is the task of Catan's knights? Well, each of the 6 terrain hexes depicts the contours of a knight.
If you build (fill in) a knight, once during the game you may use the resource of a terrain hex where a knight was built in place of another resource of your choice.
That is, after the third dice roll you may turn one of the dice so that the resource corresponding to this knight's hex is face up. After building, you enter your points in one of the 15 boxes depicted on your sheet. The game ends after each player has finished 15 turns. The player with the highest score wins. In the dice game described above, each player individually tries to get the best score; in the “Plus” version, however, the players directly compete with each other.
As in the “Catan” board game, in the Dice Game “Plus” each settlement you have built is worth 1 victory point and each city is worth 2 victory points. Furthermore, if you are the first player to build 3 knights, you may mark the “Largest Army” on your sheet, and if you are the first player to build 5 roads, you mark the “Longest Road.” The "Largest Army” and the “Longest Road” are each worth 2 victory points; if another player builds more knights or roads than you, you lose the 2 victory points. The first player to reach 10 victory points wins the game. Ages: 7+ | Players: 1 - 4 |  Playtime: 20 - 40 minutes

Catan : Explorers and Pirates Expansion

Sent out by the Council of Catan, you set out for uncharted areas to build new outposts. The sketchy information available indicates that dangerous pirate lairs, rich fishing grounds, and helpful indigenous villages await you beyond the horizon. To set up the game, you need the game components from the Catan base game as well as new frame pieces and hexes from the expansion. This provides you with quite large a game board, allowing you to go on exciting journeys of exploration and discover new land. The new Explorers & Pirates expansion is based on the Catan base game rules but also contains a number of new game mechanisms. For example, ships are now equipped for expeditions and can be moved freely across the board. In the ships you transport settlers, crews, fish, or spices across the seas. Your goal is to build new outposts on the islands that are still undiscovered and to complete the Council of Catan's missions in the most skillful way possible. Your missions are varied. First, you must prevail against pirates who terrorize the coasts of Catan. Equip your ships with crews and search for the pirates' lairs. The Council of Catan rewards the bravest fighters with fame and gold. On your way, you will encounter rich shoals of fish just waiting to be hauled aboard your ship. If you bring the fish back to the home island, the Council of Catan rewards you. Finally, you will encounter peaceful and helpful villagers who trade valuable spices to you. The Council of Catan will be delighted yet again when you deliver spices to their stronghold. You also benefit from the villagers' extensive knowledge and will learn how to sail faster across the seas or how to better fight the pirate ships. Sound like a lot of content? Right – the expansion is definitely filled to the brim with content. You don't have to worry, though, because the Explorers & Pirates expansion has a modular concept. In scenario 1, the introductory game, you are familiarized with the basic rules; then, piece by piece, you play the other scenarios containing the previously described missions. Afterwards, you can take your pick which scenario(s) you would most like to play. After you have played the first four scenarios, in scenario 5 – which bears the name of the expansion – you can complete all 3 previously described missions at the same time. Here, on the largest possible game board, you play until one of the players reaches 17 victory points. Playing this scenario for skilled Catan fans can easily turn the whole evening into an exciting experience. Ages: 12+ | Players: 3 - 4 |  Playtime: 90 - 120 minutes

Catan : Seafarers Expansion

Build ships, set sail, and conquer the magnificent island world of Catan. Nine voyages of discovery are awaiting the settlers of Catan. The expansion can also be combined with “Traders & Barbarians” and “Cities & Knights.” A campaign with many varied scenarios awaits you. First, you head for new shores. You leave Catan, land on neighboring islands, and receive special victory points whenever you are the first to settle an island. Then your ships explore entirely uncharted regions and discover either sea or land. Soon, you will meet the mysterious forgotten tribe and court its favor. Meanwhile, the pirates are becoming more audacious. You defend yourself and conquer the pirates' nests. For the glory of Catan, you finally compete with your opponents to build the most imposing wonders of the world. The Seafarers expansion contains new frame pieces, which can be used to assemble frames of variable size. In these frames, you lay out combinations of islands that are always different, using the hexes from the Catan base game and additional hexes from the expansion set - either as shown in the scenario diagrams or according to your own imagination. 15 ships of each color are included. Building a ship costs 1 lumber and 1 wool. When you build a new ship, place it adjacent to a coastal settlement or a ship you have already built. As you can see, the rules for placing ships are similar to the rules for placing roads on land. There is, however, one important exception: you may change the position of the front ships of a shipping route! That way, you can respond more flexibly to your opponents' actions and possibly be the first to reach an unsettled, productive island. Other new features are the gold fields, which help their neighbors obtain any type of resource, and the pirate, who causes unrest on the peaceful seas. Requires the Base Game Catan to play. To play with 5–6 players, the 5–6 player extension is required.Ages: 10+ | Players: 3 - 4 |  Playtime: 60 - 120 minutes

Catan Histories : Rise of the Inkas

Long before the Inkan (aka “Incan”) Empire rose to dominance in Peru, many advanced indigenous cultures developed and declined in the Andean regions of South America.

Timing is an important part of your strategy as you play Catan: Rise of the Inkas, take advantage of your opponent’s settlements in decline to set yourself up to claim victory.
