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.
In CATAN SEAFARERS, you control a group of bold seafaring settlers exploring and taming the wild, uncharted Isles of CATAN. Embark on an epic quest to settle the home island, build ships, and chart nearby waters. Build ships, set sail, and conquer the magnificent island world of Catan. Nine voyages of discovery are awaiting the settlers.
The expansion can also be combined with CATAN - Traders & Barbarians and CATAN - Cities & Knights. The scenario box CATAN - Legend of the Sea Robbers is offering 4 new, comprehensive scenarios for this expansion.
A campaign with many varied scenarios awaits you. First, you head for new shores. You leave Catan, land on neighboring islands, and receive special victory points whenever you are the first to settle an island. Then your ships explore entirely uncharted regions and discover either sea or land. Soon, you will meet the mysterious forgotten tribe and court its favor. Meanwhile, the pirates are getting more intrusive. You defend yourself and conquer the pirate nests. For the glory of Catan, you then vie with your opponents to build the most imposing wonders of the world.
The Seafarers expansion contains new frame pieces, which - together with the frame pieces of the CATAN base game - can be used to assemble frames of variable size. Inside these frames, you lay out always varying combinations of islands, using the hexes of the CATAN base game and additional hexes of the expansion set - either as shown in the scenario diagrams or according to your own imagination.
