Fantastic for a base game; definitely look into expansions!
This is the base game. I can't emphasize that enough. This review will only handle the base game, minus expansions. LEARNING CURVE: This game is extraordinarily simple and straightforward to learn. Played once through, it makes plenty of sense and opens doors to more complex rules and gameplay. GAME SPEED: 1-2 hours for 4 players. Game moves briskly but with obvious early-, mid-, and end-game stages that each have their own strategies and approaches. Game easily resumed from a paused state if you take a break. GAMEPLAY OVERALL: Catan is satisfying to play, even more satisfying to win. As a game best played with a poker face and a good set of bluffing skills, Catan rewards long-term foresight and strategies more than rushed or brute-forced gameplay techniques. Catan can become repetitive IF and ONLY IF you refuse to play randomly. I highly recommend players who have a few games under their belt learn to completely randomize the map, starting positions, and resource entitlement for more satisfying experiences. APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS? Depends on your child. Children with a knack for puzzles and strategy games will find playing Catan with adults to be very rewarding. Probably a bit too complex for children to play with each other, however; too many "honor system" concepts in play, too easy to cheat each other. APPROPRIATE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS? Gameplay can easily be catered for adults or children with special needs. Game rules are insanely simple and easily modified for those wanting additional assistance. Communities online for adapting Catan gameplay are prevalent and easily found. CONCLUSION: Catan is a fantastically easy game to pick up and learn, but complex and difficult to master. Catan is a game best suited to be expanded and enhanced, as the base game is truly just the first step into the world of Catan.

Beware! Don't try this unless you plan on getting addicted. Your life will forever be altered. You'll find yourself begging strangers to come over to play. Watching youtube videos to improve your game, bribing your children. Your spouse will become a tricky, sneaky person you hardly recognize. While you will plot ways to take over. Side effects include: less tv watching, more under the table kicking, spontaneous manical laughter, snacking while plotting the demise of your friends and family. Best fun you've had in hours!

Third party seller selling pirated copies
I like it, but it's not quite a five-star game for me because I've since discovered other games which I enjoy playing more than this one. Pros: - Popular enough that many people already know how to play, and easy enough to teach those who don't - "Gateway" game for empire-building and resource management types of games - Involves some strategy and risk management Cons: - Winner/loser inertia: As you build more things, your production tends to accelerate. If you fall behind, it becomes progressively harder to catch up. - Occasional "dead" turns: Sometimes a player's turn consists of rolling the dice and nothing else, because they didn't get any resources since their last turn. Two of those in a row makes it difficult to stay engaged, and it's more likely to happen early in the game when that matters most. - Dice rolls dominate the game: The best-laid strategies can be overpowered by a stretch of reasonably bad luck. In my opinion, Ticket to Ride or Splendor would both be superior options for a "gateway" game, because they both offer greater strategic depth, faster gameplay, easier setup, simpler rules, and comparable price. Both of those games also have plenty of randomness, but in both cases, you're still playing and engaged on every turn, even when luck isn't on your side. The relatively recent Explorers and Pirates expansion to Catan fixes many of my issues with the game, but that expansion is basically a new game which uses some of the original components and game mechanics, and it's significantly more expensive.

Dangerous! Life or Death!
My family loves this game! I also purchased the Catan 5-6 Player Extension - 5th Edition, and the Catan Scenarios Helpers of Catan card pack. Together they make endless hours of fun for us and the kids. The game involves strategy, making trade deals, and there are several ways to win. Each of my kids has their own strategy to win and it's fun to see them learning about honesty, shrewd bargaining, and exploring new ways to try to win. Another thing I like about Settlers of Catan is it's more about achieving a personal goal than "beating" the other players; the first person to get 10 "Victory Points" is the winner. The rules are easy to learn, but mastery of the game takes a long time. This is a great alternative to having the kids play video games or use their "devices". Worth every penny, the game pieces are well made and look great. Definitely add this game to your family's game collection!

The "Candy Land" of Strategy Games
The media could not be loaded. Catan is the gateway board game for many. That's a good thing because game nights seem to be the thing more and more people are doing. I love Catan, I think this game is well balanced, easy to learn and really fun to play. I've gotten friends and family members who've only ever played games such as Card Against Humanity to not only play, but truly enjoy it. As mentioned the game is easy to pick up and the rules are straight forward. I typically recommend watching a YouTube video about the rules if no one in the group has played. There are some great videos under 10 minutes explaining all the rules. Setting up the game takes only a few minutes. Although, when the game is brand new it will take just as bit longer as you have to open everything for the first time. Ahh new game smell! It's highly recommend that you play on a flat surface and on a table when possible. There are a decent amount of pieces overall. Bags are included to put all the pieces away at the end. This game makes such a great gift for many occasions such as a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Valentine's, or even just because! There are expansions to the game as well, but this original game is a solid start to what very well could become an addiction.

UPDATE: Video - Great Gift for Many Occasions - Read Why!
I came across Catan while desperately searching for a Christmas present that did not involve electronics. I have two teenagers, boys 14 & 16, and they are completely into their computer, Xbox, PS4 etc... After reading some good reviews about Catan, I decided to buy it for Christmas last year. In lieu of reading the directions, we watched a short 15 minute youTube video on how to play which was very helpful. After our first game, they immediately wanted to play AGAIN. It was a true miracle. Not only that, the very next day, they woke up and asked first thing if they could play it again. So I wanted to let other parents of teenagers obsessed with electronics know that there IS something else out there that can get their teens attention and be a blast for the whole family. My teens and I like it so much because it's similar to Monopoly but it takes a fraction of the time (about an hour). The game moves pretty quickly and keeps you engaged as you strategize, trade and plan. The basic gist is each person's goal is to create 'settlements' and build roads which bring you points, and whoever reaches 10 points wins the game. The settlements are similar to Monopoly's houses which you buy with money, but in Catan, you obtain the settlement houses using resources (brick, sheep, hay, ore, wood). It may sound boring, but it's really not and it's super fun. So fun that we always bring it with us on road trips too. So if you're looking for something that is NOT an electronic gift, consider Catan, spend the money and rebond with your kids over a good old-fashioned board game.

Fun game
Why my family and I like the Game: Great game for 3 to 4 players, we even like the game with only 2 people, but 3 or 4 is better. The game cannot go on forever in a stale mate type situation, once you get your first couple of games out of the way the games usually take about 12 to 15 minutes per player to finish. 3 player game once experienced should take about 45 minutes. The game board can be set up differently every time you play, this allows a different game each time and for players to employ different strategies. I love the solid feeling game pieces. The game is made very well which makes it more enjoyable to us and gives us a stronger desire to keep the game in good condition. Cons: Setup takes longer than the average board game. still less than 5 minutes but hey, I wanted to write something under con. The really only con i see to this game is that you are limited to four players or less unless you buy the expansion pack. Summary: Great game for people who like board games that involve some strategy. We play with people who range in age from 8 to 72, enjoyable for all so far. We put in about 10 games the first weekend we finally opened the box!

My family loves this game. I love this game. It can take awhile to play and we also use the expansion set since there are six of us. This is a great game and we have found it is not always the same person winning, which is nice. It is a strategy game, but also hinges on chance as well. If you have trouble understanding how to play, there are a ton of tutorials that take you through it step-by-step on YouTube that will help. This is a very giftable game that is likely to be played and cherished for years to come. We've bought two copies in the past six years as the kids in our extended families have become old enough to play. My oldest daughter took my copy of it back to her dorm to play with her suitemates for a break during finals next month. So maybe it's time to get my two older kids their own copies as well. As a side note, this game actually can lay the foundation for kids to understand some basic ideas about geopolitics, trade, and economics. So bonus points for sneaky learning.

One of my family's top 5 all-time favorite board games
LOVE this game! We quickly learned the rules which, to my old head at least, at first sounded rather complicated - it's anything BUT. Lots of fun to get the family around a board game again, and away from the video games and cell phones. The strategy is simple: collect resource cards (sheep, brick, stone, straw, and lumber) in order to build settlements, expand roads, and eventually build cities. Resources can be traded with other players and rewards can be claimed (longest road, largest "army") and as you work your way through the process of developing the land, the first player to reach ten points wins. This is perfect for three to four players; five or more players can play as well, but the game play is pretty crowded and fast at that point, so you would be well advised to purchase the extension pack at that point. My initial thought when looking at this game was that the price seemed a bit high for what I thought was a complicated Parcheesi (hah!) but we played a couple of games with my daughter and son-in-law, and we were hooked. Set aside an hour or two for a game, but don't be surprised to find you've spent six hours on three or four games. It's addicting, and it's a blast.

You don't need to be a nerd to enjoy this game
I bought this game a few weeks ago as a Christmas gift for our family. It is so much fun. We spend hours and hours playing Catan every day since. It is a great game for the family - easy to learn. Every game is different. Yo need to define a new strategy every time you start a new game and than adapt your plans according to the development of the game. Very unique is the interaction between the players when trading resources because there are no rules for the negotiation and this creates a very dynamic and fun ambiance. We laugh a lot. I could imagine that we will buy one or two extensions sets for next year Christmas.

This game is a blast!
We’ve been parents for nearly 30 years, with four kids still at home and married children who visit regularly. My wife is also a highly-esteemed early-educator. We’ve always enjoyed and kept a number of board games, but we’d never tried a “European-style” board game until our son-in-law recommended Catan. It was an instant, smashing success! The kids were pestering us to play constantly. WARNING: I had the Wikipedia page which mentioned the additional drama of European-style board games, but I didn’t get it. It is, indeed nearly impossible to play this game much without someone’s feelings getting hurt. For one thing, people tend to form alliances—but that’s not uncommon in board games. More importantly nearly every action you take tends to harm someone else, and you simply MUST trade with other players frequently to stay in the game. Worst of all, the most common roll of the dice (seven) results in you immediately having to take from another player AND cripple his resources. And if any player gets on a roll for several games, it can start to feel very frustrating—especially for younger players. Drama indeed!

Lots of fun
I have been playing Settlers of Catan for over 15 years and while many other games have come and gone, I still think this is my favorite game of all time. This is a great strategy game that isn't hard to learn, but like an onion there are many levels to peal back. While the game is pretty easy to learn, the strategy is what makes it so fun. There is no one perfect strategy, which means every game can be different. We change the rules sometimes and play to 12 which makes games go a little longer and requires you to use more strategy to win. I have probably played this games close to 500 times and I really never get sick of it. Being a strategy game, it is definitely not for everyone. I have probably introduced 20-30 people to this game and only a handful didn't love it, which is understandable. If you have never tried it then you should give it a go because it really is awesome. I also love the updated board and pieces as my old Settlers version is pretty ratty and drab. Great game and if you watch you can often get it on sale for around $20-25.

Best board game in decades! We paid full price AND bought an extension within weeks!
Once we got the ball rolling, the family quickly adopted this game as the new favorite. Before sitting down to play, you have to separate each of the many game pieces. Be careful here and read the advice in the pamphlets that come with the game to prevent damaging the cardboard/paper pieces. I recommend that you sit with some YouTube videos on game play to understand how the game flows. We tried initially through just reading the documentation. It was ok, but once we watched a video we realized we mis-read some sections and the game flowed much better after the video. We have only played the game with the standard configuration (which balances the board), but there is the option to randomize the tiles. I think we will be moving to the randomized version to mix up the starting strategies the players keep repeating. Love that there are player expansion options available for purchase, as well.

Maybe the best game of all time?
SO MUCH FUN! It is me, my husband and our 12 year old and we like to keep the desert in the middle then random shuffle the tiles around to make every single game different. However, you absolutely need to be cut throat or 1. you won't win and 2. it'll be boring. The point is to resource manage to win, this mean thinking strategically to bring the most value to what you have. It's a great thought process game for kids to start learning that (100% true) resources are finite and how can we make them more valuable. Economics 101 Supply and Demand! SO FUN.

Quick Family Favorite but Allow Learning Curve Time
Awesome game, I played two games with my kids. Only issue I had, was that I had my son read the rules... He left out about 1/2 of the rules... and I was like, so why do they call it the robber? Why does it matter where you move it? (He left out the part about it keeping production at 0 while it was there)... After the first game, we dug back into the rules and discovered that a city gave 2x the production that a settlement does, and that you can't directly build a city... little things he left out... but we didn't go through the entire rules at that time, I did that after we were done... The additional rules (i.e. the rules) would have made the game longer, but more balanced and fair, and given me a better chance of winning... All in all outstanding!

If Your Family Isn't Cutthroat..... meh
I first played this game back in 2006 and I was instantly a fan. It is a 3-4 player game but they have come out wth expansions as well to be able to add more players, or to be able to access the ocean, they even have a Game of Thrones expansion. They game is really simple, you just have to get used to it, but there is a lot of strategy and skill that goes beyond the basics of the game. A great game to sit down with friends and play. I finally bought my own board game since my wife saw an episode of Tabletop with Will Wheaton and that played this game. This game also has its own cult following with 3rd party tshirts and jokes springing up. A must have for any strategy gamer, or tabletop gamer.
