A ‘Settlers of Catan’ expansion is an enjoyable game that’s fun for all ages, and is very easy to learn and play. It’s a great introductory game for non-gamers, and will keep them interested, turn after turn. It was a terrific hit for my family and their friends. If you’re not familiar with ‘Settlers of Catan’, then you need to find out what’s been going on in the gaming community, so get a copy and see what you’ve been missing. I prefer playing this expansion with its added dimensions of shipping lanes, islands and the extra playing pieces of ships and pirates. With very nice components and a game that will be well received by everyone, is definitely worth having.
