Hi everyone! Have you ever played Settlers of Catan? This popular board game is what I consider to be a cross between Monopoly and Risk. Up to four players compete to gain access to resources. The more resources you aquire, the more territory you can settle. There are multiple versions of the game. Some feature pirates and knights, while an American version requires you to build railroads and expand west.
Playing these games has helped by develop my powers of strategy, adaptability and inventing new tactics. Recently I’ve been playing with my friends on a weekly basis. I don’t always win, but when I do it’s a real sense of accomplishment. One game can take as long as 3 hours! After that much intense concentration, it’s a good feeling to be the winner.
I hope you’ll give Catan a try someday.
