Catan: Seafarers

This adds so much to the base game of Catan – just the fact that there are sea tiles and a larger board opens it up for a much wider range of interesting strategies. Seafarers is what every expansion should strive to emulate, adding an interesting twist without taking anything away.

Recommended for anyone with Catan. Particularly people who have become bored with the base game. A must have.

I think “3-6 players” is a little on the low side. If you have plenty of like-minded players this can be an amusing little distraction but in smaller groups and with people who aren’t on the same wavelength it quickly becomes boring and tedious.

Also a game that could benefit from there being more to it. I’m all for minimalism but Munchkin always just feels like there’s something missing.

If the sheer amount of tokens, counters and various bits and bobs isn’t enough to put you off, the repetitive gameplay and ultimate pointlessness of your endeavours surely will.

There is no competitiveness to this game and therefore very little in the way of player interaction, you’re left with a rather dull collaborative struggle. Maybe I just don’t “get” this game, perhaps if you’re into games you might as well be playing by yourself then it’s for you.

It’s like a roleplay-free Dungeons and Dragons except confined to a board and hampered by a seriously imagination-deficient Dungeon Master.
