Expansion! Requires Catan base game to play!
Catan: Explorers & Pirates includes 5 novel scenarios, each of which builds upon your previous experience. All are easy to learn, rich in character, and lots of fun. In each, you explore an unknown sea by ship and build settlements on the discovered islands.
Scenario 1 (“Land Ho!”) introduces you to valuable harbor settlements, shipbuilding, exploration, and overseas settlement—the most important basic rules of this expansion. Each subsequent scenario introduces a new mission and its simple new rules. The game culminates in Scenario 5 (“Explorers & Pirates”), which incorporates all of these very rich new themes in a diverse and exciting campaign of bold exploration and piracy!
Explore Catan! Build harbor settlements, ships, settlers, and sailing crews and set out across mysterious seas in search of new lands, spices, fish, and gold fields.
How to Play
A dynamic expansion pack offering new ways to play Catan! Includes five new scenarios and three new missions.
Expand your world of Catan from your first port settlement and explore to discover new islands and adventures.
Set sail on the high seas, but come prepared because you might discover pirate lairs or they might find you first.
Explore New Islands
Instead of having a single island to build and compete for resources, discover untouched lands to settle and find new cultures to trade with.
New Port Settlements
Now you can build port settlements to produce ships and settlers to help you fish, trade with new cultures, and protect yourself from pirates.
Trade for Gold
If a player receives no resources during the production roll, they receive one gold in compensation. Two gold can be traded for resources. Gold can also be used for escaping pirates.
