  • This is a great game. Still fun even after years of playing. It's amazing how a game that lacks any violence can still be so intense!Noah and Katie 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • An old classic by now. Its easy to get worked up in this game if there are some competitive people around. Fun to play, but can be intimidating to learn the first time around.Jesse Sutherland 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Perfect board game! If there was one totally well-rounded, strategic fun board game out there- this would be it! I can play this game any time of the day! Justin Tholl 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is in my opinion the best board game created. With the variety that the expansions afford, I find it difficult to imagine ever tiring of the game. The game is not the ideal for socializing.stips 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Enjoyable game. I've played it for years. Not a huge fan of luck/dice games, but this one is still engaging.swhited 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Best way to get someone started in boardgaming. Very easy to understand and, although very luck driven, has enough strategy in it. One player will always end up screaming and raging. Dices are evil.devatrox 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Definitely the game that started it all. However, the base game does get dull after 30 + plays. Make sure you have the right people to play with (those who like to bargain). Watch out for the robber!carbonfiber25 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The game that started me gaming. It doesn't hit the table much anymore because I've since moved on to greener pastures, but it's still a solid game that's great for new gamers.CunningAllusionment 6 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Just an overall great game experience. Great balance between luck of the dice and strategy.Brent Greunke 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Settlers is well on its way to becoming the new Monopoly. It is game that everyone should play! Great for family game night or competitive groups. Tons of strategy and a blast to play!Andrew Verticchio 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Still a fun game after all these years. With trading and some decent strategy, you can minimize the luck factor. But, sometimes the dice just don't roll your way.Brian Fahl 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • This is the THE game you want to use to rope your friends into playing the better games you've got stowed away. Serious gamers will soon tire of Catan, but it deserves credit as a great ambassador.Kevin Lee 6 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Amazingly well balanced game. No matter how you start all of the players are in immediate contention with each other which makes this game intense and highly competitive.randyb 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I agree this is a great intro game. This gets game play for me with my mom who really likes this game because everyone's play and dice roll affects your game without being cutthroat.BluePawn 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I've had this game for 5 years, it's still a regular in my gaming rotating. Best with 3 players, gets crowded with 4 but still works well. Good social aspect with trading resources, a must own game!Devin3279 10 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • The game that brought me into a new world of board games. Still a classic favorite. But we've added various expansions to inhance game play (i.e. Fish from Traders and Barbarians). Aaron Sivertson 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Great game. Can get kind of intense depending on who you play with. Negotiation is key. Definitely recommend expansions for replay value!Loyal 6 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
