Catan Traveler Compact Edition

- Games & Puzzles

by MAYFAIR GAMES - $60.00 - Add to Cart

Catan - Traveler is based on the same rules as the Catan base game, its "big brother." At the beginning of the game, you and your opponents each build 2 settlements on the island of Catan. If the numbers of the terrain hexes your settlements are adjacent to are rolled, you receive resources. You use these resources - ore, brick, grain, lumber, and wool - to build roads in order to reach new settlement sites, to upgrade your settlements to cities, or to buy development cards so you can, at the right moment, turn the tide in your favor. If you lack a particular resource type, you trade with your opponents. If you trade cleverly and have a little bit of luck, you have a good chance to win the game. The most important differences between "Catan - Traveler" and the "Catan" base game: -All of the game components fit in a case that occupies half the space required to store the "Catan" base game. - The game pieces are stored in drawers. During play, you can take the pieces directly from there as needed, and you can put them back into the drawers after the game has ended. - Roads, settlements, and cities have small pegs that allow you to securely plug them into the holes in the game board. That way, gusts of wind or an accidental jostle won't jumble up the pieces you have placed on the game board. - The two dice are stored in a dice shaker with transparent cover, which is why they practically can't be lost. You can roll the dice everywhere - even if no flat surface is available or there isn't enough space to throw the dice with your hand. - It takes only a couple of seconds to set up the game board for "Catan - Traveler." Open the case and place the 6 double-sided game board pieces. Since you can randomly combine the board pieces, there are hundreds of different ways to set up the island. As with the "Catan" base game, besides completely balanced terrain hex distributions the compact version also allows for set-ups containing very few hexes of a particular terrain type, for example, mountains or hills. - People frequently travel in pairs. In order for you to settle Catan together with your partner, the compact version includes the tried and tested 2-player rules and the corresponding game components. 2-4 players. Average game is 45-90 minutes. Recommended ages 10+.

Concept

- Games & Puzzles

by REPOS PRODUCTION - $55.00 - Add to Cart

In Concept, your goal is to guess words through the association of icons. A team of two players – neighbors at the table – choose a word or phrase that the other players need to guess. Acting together, this team places pieces judiciously on the available icons on the game board. To get others to guess "milk", for example, the team might place the question mark icon (which signifies the main concept) on the liquid icon, then cubes of this color on the icons for "food/drink" and "white". For a more complicated concept, such as "Leonardo DiCaprio", the team can use the main concept and its matching cubes to clue players into the hidden phrase being an actor or director, while then using sub-concept icons and their matching cubes to gives clues to particular movies in which DiCaprio starred, such as Titanic or Inception. The first player to discover the word or phrase receives 2 victory points, the team receives points as well, and the player who ends up with the most points wins.

A combination of the game Elfenland with Elfengold and the addition of Elfensea. In Elfenland, young elves have to pass a very special test before they are accepted as grownups. All elf girls and elf boys receive a map of Elfenland, and they have to visit as many famous towns in Elfenland as possible, using the common types of transportation: dragons, unicorns, giant pigs, elfcycles, troll wagons, magic clouds, ferries and rafts. These types of transportation, however, are available in limited numbers and can only be used in specific regions. Thus, an exciting race starts among the elves to find out who will make the best use of the available transportation. The one to visit the most towns will win the game. Elfengold is an expansion to Elfenland (not Elfensea). Elfengold adds gold coins, which players use to bid for the Travel Counters and some other new items. It also adds Gold Value Tokens to the towns that indicate how much gold players earn for visiting a town. There are two different Magic Spells and and a new obstacle - a Sea Monster! We have added 2 Round Cards to make a longer game of six rounds. All these things work to make a great game even more tactical and exciting. We hope you enjoy playing with these additions. In Elfensea, just as in Elfenland, young elves have to pass a very special test before they are accepted as grownups. The same rules apply in Elfensea as in Elfenland, except as described in the rules. Also note that the map is different and the common types of transportation: dragons, unicorns, giant pigs, magic clouds, whales and rafts differ somewhat as well. As with Elfensea, these types of transportation are available in limited numbers and can only be used in specific regions. Thus, an exciting race starts among the elves to find out who will make the best use of the available transportation. The player with the most Points will win the game.
