Catan - the perfect strategy game for the whole family. Trade, build and settle: Embark on a quest to settle the isle of Catan! Guide your settlers to victory by clever trading and cunning development. Use resource combinations - grain, wool, ore, brick and lumber - to buy handy development cards and build roads, settlements and cities. Gain victory points as your settlement grows; the first to reach a set number of victory points, wins. Will you succeed in gaining supremacy on Catan?

Catan Explorers and Pirates is an expansion to Catan. You will need pieces of the Catan base game in order to play this expansion. New to Catan, you'll likely want to stick to the original game at first. Then you can expand the game and have some new adventures.

The Catan Explorers and Pirates expansion is entirely dedicated to exploration. Sent out by the Council of Catan, players set out for uncharted areas to build new outposts. The sketchy information available indicates that dangerous pirate lairs, rich fishing grounds, and helpful indigenous villages await you beyond the horizon. This expansion includes 5 new scenarios, each of which builds upon your previous experience.
