Catan (known before as The Settlers of Catan) is a highly awarded board game (over 15 awards) where players try to rule the island of Catan by building settlements, cities, and roads.

On every turn, the dice will roll to determine what resources the island will produce. To build you will spend different resources (brick, wood, wheat, sheep and ore) which are depicted by the resource cards. Every type of land, with the exception of the desert, makes a specific resource.

To set up before you play, you must first randomly place large hexagonal tiles (with a resource or the desert) in a honeycomb shape, and then adding water tiles, some of which also have ports of exchange.

To see which resources will be produced, number disks, which correspond to die rolls are placed on each resource tile.

Each player has two settlements and roads that will be placed on intersections of resource tiles. On each turn, you can play a development card, roll the dice, get resource cards, turn in resource cards for improvements, trade cards at a port, and trade resource cards with other players.

You get points for building settlements and cities, having the longest road and/or the largest army and getting development cards with victory points. When a player has 10 points he will win.
