My family has this game, and we all like it. The kids particularly LOVE it.

The things that *might* give you a hang up; The base set of the game only accommodates 4 players, If you have a larger family than that... like we do, you need the *extension* set also, which makes it cost a bit more to play.

That said, the game is totally worth it. My kids have learned so much about planning, about how societies develop, what sorts of things are necessary and the time it takes to grow a civilization. The base game is actually very simple in concept, but there's so much to do! If you wish, there are "expansion" sets. These are not different versions of the original game, but ways to introduce more factors into your game - like seafaring voyages and exploration. Sometimes I cannot even keep up with what's from the original game and what's new, but the instruction booklets are really helpful and once you jump in and play, you are on a roll.

This is one of my favorite games. It's ways to get the hang of and every game is different. I love that you can talk and socialize during game play, but it still requires of strategy and thought. It's a great family game as well since kids could easily learn it. It is pretty pricey at $50 but I have no regrets about the game. I picked mine up at Barnes and noble and have also seen it at target. I also love that you can buy expansion packs to change the game and add more players. You can't go wrong when choosing this game.

A great game, but not my favorite out of all my fiance's european board games! :) I don't know if it's because it's too cliche (everyone seems to know what Catan is haha) or because of the game play.

The most intriguing and unique part of this game is the negotiating you have to do to get the items that you want. It's not just a rolling of die that determines who will succeed! Very cool A+.

This is an awesome strategy game that will leave your group hilariously arguing about wheat and sheep. Adults will enjoy this game, but it may be too complicated for small children to understand. Make sure you set aside enough time to play the game, as it can take anywhere from 50 minutes to three hours. It's great fun!

This game is fun, ever changing, strategic and worth every penny if you love a solid strategy game. It can bring fourth arguments among families because of the competition, but it's so exciting to play! One of a kind.

I'm a gamer and highly enjoy board games but this game just bored me! I can't enjoy rivers and mountains. I wanted to fall asleep playing it with friends

It's a whole new level of the monopoly game and much more interesting. The only down side is that it takes forever to finish the game.

One of my favorites board games. The first time I tried to play I didn't like it, I guess it was because my friends were already very familiar with it and I wasn't at all, but once you get it and start understanding how it works you get completely into it. Very recommended for a fun game night.

Does anyone know where you can find the custom handmade boards? I've checked etsy, but I didn't see the artist that used to be on there anymore :(
