Get ready for a new multiplayer card game set in the Catan universe, it’s The Struggle for Catan! As in the original Catan board game, players need to manage their resources in order to build settlements, roads, cities, city improvements, and knights.
The Struggle for Catan is notably dice-less! This makes resource gain and exchanging based on each player’s developments, meaning less luck controlling the flow of the game. Control of roads and knights can change hands during the game, so don’t assume that what’s yours will stay yours. City improvements are expensive, but they bring you additional Victory Points and other bonuses, so strive to spiff up your cities! A new twist in the game is that certain developments are limited and can be stolen from other players once there are no new ones left. The first player to gain 10 victory points wins the game.
Mixing two copies of The Struggle for Catan allows up to 6 players.
The Struggle for Catan is recommended for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up. Gameplay lasts around 45 minutes.
