Settlers Of Catan
« on: May 02, 2011, 05:23:42 PM »
Best. Game. Ever.

Well, at least for a game played on a board.  Must've played it 10 times over Pesach.
Any other Settlers players out there?

The game is really awesome. You could play it online but I am warning you, you might waste a lot of time on it (even more than angry birds!)

Unfortunately I was scarred from this game (I stayed at some family in Israels house for shabbos and they force fed us this game for 8 hours), but Im sure it would be loads of fun if not for all the painful associations! :)

This Shabbos I was playing Cities and Nights and we didn't roll a barbarian for about 40 straight rolls.
That's 1 in a trillion!!! (2^40)

I should buy a lottery ticket :P

Played Settlers for the first time a few weekends ago. It's a fantastic game but  I think I prefer Pandemic - the co-op aspect is something you don't see in too many board games.

I've played Pandemic and it is a nice concept but I still prefer Settlers by far.

Maybe you need to try Cities and Knights. Once you play Cities and Knights you can't go back to plain Settlers anymore.  :)

Has anyone played Rivals For Catan or Catan Card game? Is it any good?

Can I assume its the Monopoly deal of Catan?

Has anyone played Rivals For Catan
Yes. It's a pretty good game but nowhere near as good as the real thing. Also setup (and keeping the many different decks of cards separate) can be a pain.

The biggest benefit of it is that you can play with 2 players.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Catan Card Game and Rivals for Catan are not identical; according to BoardGameGeek, the designer (of both) said that he reworked many of the original card game's mechanics for Rivals to make it easier for newcomers to play. Both are 2-player only and shouldn't be confused with the 2-4 player card game The Struggle for Catan (which wasn't rated as high as the 2p versions by BGG users).

(Also, Monopoly Millionaire Deal over Monopoly Deal, hands down.)
