Catan

- by MAYFAIR GAMES

Games & Puzzles $60.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $54.00

Catan (formerly The Settlers of Catan™), the original strategy board game. Your adventurous settlers seek to tame the remote but rich isle of Catan. Start by revealing Catan's many harbors and regions: pastures, fields, mountains, hills, forests, and desert. The random mix creates a different board virtually every game. No two games are the same! Embark on a quest to settle the isle of Catan! Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Use resource combinations - grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber - to buy handy development cards and build roads, settlements, and cities. Acquire your resources through trades, cards, or lucky dice (even outside your turn). But beware! Someone might cut off your road or buy a monopoly. And you never know when the wily robber might steal some of your precious gains! For 3-4 players. Ages 10 and up.

Catan Cities & Knights Expansion

Reader Reward Price: $54.00

Cities & Knights Expansion. Dark clouds are gathering over the peaceful island of Catan. Wild barbarians, attracted by the wealth of Catan, sailed to attack the country. Fortunately, warning has given Catan time to meet the danger. The size of the barbarian army corresponds to the number of cities in Catan. Thus, for Catan to fend off the barbarian attack, the players must form a knight force as strong as the barbarian force. In addition to fending off the barbarians, players compete to build the three great metropolises of Catan. Each of these magnificent centers are worth two additional victory points. To build a metropolis, players must invest in city improvements. To acquire these improvements, players must acquire the three new types of Trade Cards: Coinage, Paper, and Cloth. These cards can only be gained by building a city next to mountain, forest, or pasture hexes. This is an expansion pack and requires ownership of Catan base-game to play.

Catan Traveller Edition

- by MAYFAIR GAMES

Games & Puzzles $55.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $49.50

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+.

Decrypto

- by LE SCORPION MASQUE

Games & Puzzles $30.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $27.00

Players compete in two teams in Decrypto, with each trying to correctly interpret the coded messages presented to them by their teammates while cracking the codes they intercept from the opposing team. In more detail, each team has their own screen, and in this screen they tuck four cards in pockets numbered 1-4, letting everyone on the same team see the words on these cards while hiding the words from the opposing team. In the first round, each team does the following: One team member takes a code card that shows three of the digits 1-4 in some order, e.g., 4-2-1. They then give a coded message that their teammates must use to guess this code. For example, if the team's four words are "pig", "candy", "tent", and "son", then I might say "Sam-striped-pink" and hope that my teammates can correctly map those words to 4-2-1. If they guess correctly, great; if not, we receive a black mark of failure. Starting in the second round, a member of each team must again give a clue about their words to match a numbered code. If I get 2-4-3, I might now say, "sucker-prince-stake". The other team then attempts to guess our numbered code. If they're correct, they receive a white mark of success; if not, then my team must guess the number correctly or take a black mark of failure. (Guessing correctly does nothing except avoid failure and give the opposing team information about what our hidden words might be.) The rounds continue until a team collects either its second white mark (winning the game) or its second black mark (losing the game). Games typically last between 4-7 rounds. If neither team has won after eight rounds, then each team must attempt to guess the other team's words; whichever team guesses more words correctly wins. 3-8 players. Ages 12+. Game time is 15-45 mins.

Gobblet

- by BLUE ORANGE GAMES

Games & Puzzles $42.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $37.80

Gobblet is an abstract game played on a 4 squares by 4 squares playing surface. Each player (2-player game) has 12 pieces (also wood). The pieces are 'nested' into 3 stacks of 4 pieces. Each group's 4 pieces are successively smaller wooden pieces (the 3 largest of each group are cups and the 4th is solid wood). The object of the game is to get 4 of your color in a row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal). Your pieces start nested and you can only play exposed pieces on your turn, so 1 of your 3 largest pieces always is placed 1st. On your turn you may play 1 exposed piece from your 3 piles, or you may move 1 piece on the board to any other spot on the board where it will fit. Larger pieces may cover any smaller pieces (even your own). A piece being played from off the board may not cover an opponent's piece unless it is in a row where your opponent has three of his color. Your memory is also tested as you try to remember what color your larger piece is covering, before you move it. One of the rules is that ANY time someone has 4 in a row they win, but if you lift your piece and reveal an opponent's piece which finishes a four in a row, you do not immediately lose. You cannot replace the piece where it came from, but if you can place it over one of the other three opponent's pieces in that four in a row the game continues.
