Settlers of Catan

When we went to Kentucky last February, our friends Kristin and Greg taught us this new game, "Settlers of Catan." It may be the best game ever and we quickly purchased it ourselves and started having Settlers parties. The downside to the game is that it is only for 6 players and with our group of friends, there are about 15 people for any given activity. We felt kind of snooty inviting people in groups of 4. One of our other friends decided to buy the game, so we expanded and had 12 people playing at the same time.

In case you are interested, the game is like a combination of Risk and Monopoly except better because all players can be engaged in some aspect of play on every turn. I won't try and explain more than that because it is a little complicated to explain initially, but if you are a gamer, you should consider this as your next game purchase.

Julie and Mike love this game. I've played a few time but haven't won yet. It is fun but you have to watch out for sneaky people.

You might also like Carcassone. I think it is from the same company. Sam and I got hooked on the game in college and it is a lot of fun, especially with a group! Your blog is a lot of fun to read! Keep at it! :)
