Catan: Explorers & Pirates Expansion Game



THIS IS AN EXPANSION TO THE CATAN STRATEGY BOARD GAME BASE: You will need a CATAN Base Game in order to play with this expansion.

Catan: Explorers & Pirates is the fourth major expansion for The Settlers of Catan (following SeafarersCities & Knights and Traders & Barbarians) and it includes five scenarios and three missions; some of the scenarios make use of the missions while others do not.

The Explorers & Pirates expansion is based on the CATAN base game rules but also contains a number of new game mechanisms. For example, ships are now equipped for expeditions and can be moved freely across the board. In the ships you transport settlers, crews, fish, or spices across the seas. Your goal is to build new outposts on the islands that are still undiscovered and to complete the Council of Catan's missions in the most skillful way possible.
