Settlers of Catan
4.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - May 7, 2009

This is a cult classic! Hard to find in any store, best found on the web. 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 the current production on the island. Players collect raw materials to build up their civilizations to gain enough victory points to win the game. game time: 90 minutes players: 3-4 Ill trade you 1 sheep for 1 wood! ... PROS: (1) Modular design makes for a new board each time, keeping game fresh (2) Game design allows for wide variety in strategy and play ability (3) Multiple paths to victory (4) Ruleset has good checks and balances to make sure one player doesnt totally dominate too early (5) Durable game pieces ... CONS: (1) End game state isnt fixed and may make the game drag.

Addictive Game That is Fun for the Whole Family
5 Star Review   By member InternetAdict - Jan 22, 2009   

Strengths: Loads of fun Simple to learn Will have wide appeal to both men/women/boys/girls

Weakness: None I can think of.

This game is a lot of fun but though I have friends that claim they have finished games in 30 minutes, it takes us closer to 2 hours! Though it seems a little difficult at first, it is actually quite easy to learn. Like the game of Risk, much of the outcome is based on the luck of the roll of the dice. But unlike risk there are no battles or anything like that. But there is a lot of subtle strategy. You need to decide where to place your settlements on the board. Where you place them depends on what resources you get at the roll of the dice. Each player takes a turn rolling the dice and if you have a settlement adjacent to whatever number is rolled, you get a particular "resource" (ore, wood, wool, etc.). You can cash these in for more settlements or cities (larger settlements) or development cards, or roads. Each of these are worth points and the first player to hit 10 points wins. But there is a lot of subtle strategy involved and there are different tactics that can be used to win. I've never played a game like this where one player can completely dominate the entire game only to have the player in last place win in the last few minute. It is quite addictive. You can play a tutorial online at playcatan.com to see if this game is for you.

4 Star Review   By member triple_l - Nov 10, 2008   

Strengths: Game always changes as the board pieces are shuffleable and moveable

Weakness: Hard to explain and understand at first, people get super competitive

This game was all the rage amongst several groups of my friends. One group managed to stay good sports while playing it, but it brought out the bad side of people from the other three groups we played with. Basically, part of this game involves persuading other people to help you or hurt others, so you can understand why people would get whinny and catty.

Best. Boardgame. Ever!
5 Star Review   By member WhetWurm - Sep 28, 2008   

Strengths: Endless strategy. Solid construction. Great fun.

Weakness: LOTS of pieces that are easily lost. 3+ players only.

This is probably the best board game I've ever played. That includes Monopoly, Risk, Stratego and Scrabble. This game offers some of the most dynamic strategy I've ever seen in a game and the requisite "diplomacy" inherent in each round is enough to make politicians blanch. I've never had more fun being nice to my brother while stabbing him in the back 2 rounds down the road. My only real complaint about this game is that you need 3 or more people to play. Not fun as a 2 player game. Other than that, this game is no worse than Monopoly in terms of losing pieces.
