"Catan - Traveler" is based on the same rules as "Catan - The 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.
Whether you're on the train, in the ski lodge or picnicking in the woods: This compact edition lets you take Catan everywhere!
The space-saving box unfolds to reveal the variable board. Roads, settlements and cities are safe in their locking drawers.
Cards are held securely in holder trays. Even the dice, thanks to the practical hex-shaped shaker can't get dropped and lost.
Catan compact is handy, fits easily into your luggage and contains all of the components and fun of the "big" Catan.
*Catan Traveler is not compatible with any of the Expansions or Extensions in the Catan line of products.
