Catan - Traders & Barbarians Expansion
Revive the Catan experience with this expansion adding variants, scenarios, and so much more!!
Catan: Traders & Barbarians contains 4 variants, which are small scale expansions which can be used with any game and 5 scenarios which are larger-scale expansions.
The Friendly Robber:
This is essentially a house rule that keeps players with less than 3 victory points from being attacked by the robber.
Catan Event Cards:
This is a deck of cards that replaces dice rolls. Instead, you draw a card, and whenever 31 of the 36 cards have been drawn (as marked by a special New Year card) you reshuffle.
This introduces a new victory point card, the Harbormaster which is worth 2 Victory points. Any settlement built at a harbor earns 1 harbor point and any city earns 2 harbor points.
The first player with 3 harbor points gets the Harbormaster card, and it then changes hands when other players exceed that count.
Catan for Two:
This introduces a method for playing The Settlers of Catan with just two players. It does so by introducing two neutral players that the real players can build for, as well as trade tokens which are a new resource which players can manage and which they can use to get cards from the neutral players.
Game time: 90 minutes
