This is the latest 4th edition and is the core game.
For ages 10 to adult, Settlers of Catan has a huge following worldwide for good reason. It’s fun and challenging.
The board is made up of 19 terrain hexagonal tiles (hexes) which are surrounded by ocean. This is the mythical world of Catan. These are laid down randomly. 18 of the tiles produce a different resource; either clay, ore, lumber, grain, or wool. One terrain tile is the dessert, which produces no resources.
The object of the game is to develop Catan and become Lord, by collecting resources which in turn allows you to build roads, settlements and cities. Each player starts the game with two settlements and two roads. Roads are built along the edges of the hex tiles and settlements and cities on the point where three hex tiles meet.
The roll of two dice determines which hexes produce resources. Any players with settlements or cities next to hexes that match the number rolled receive that hexes resource. Players require certain combinations of resources allows you to build. Players also need to trade resources with each other so they can get the combinations to get what they need.

"My entire family *loves* this game - including my 5 yr old. I love getting to see how the kids handle some grown up situations (like bartering for goods) and also interesting to watch them learn and develop interest in something that makes them think in different ways. There is a learning curve to this game, but that’s part of the fun. From start to finish, this game holds the attention of everyone in my family; it is never the same twice (gets the old thinker working). Helps kids develop many skills - bartering, patience, analysis, critical thinking, foresight - and is fun, too. This is one game we can get out and the teenagers actually want to participate."
"If you are a fan of Catan, the new edition will not disappoint you. If you are new to Catan, you will love it. My family spends a lot of time with this game. The game is complex enough for adults to be challenged and simple enough for your 8-10 year old to play with you. The expansion pack is a must if you would like to be able to play with more than 4 people. My suggestion, pick up the settlers, expansion pack, cities and knights, and the expansion pack for that and you are in for a lot of family fun!"
