Catan has become one of the most popular board games of the last decade. This game jumpstarted my wife and me on a tabletop gaming path that we shall never depart. This is easily in my top 5 favorite games of all time, is extremely easy to pick up, and quickly becoming a classic.

Each player will collect or trade resources (brick, wood, sheep, wheat, and stone) to build roads and settlements, that can be later grown into cities. The more settlements and cities built, the more resources are procured by a player. So, one must take great care of where they are building. The first player to reach 10 victory points wins the game.

I've played this version, the expansion, and several other games of the Catan universe and enjoyed them all. However, some of the expansions do get quite complex and may be challenging for children. This is definitely a great addition to your game nights!
