How to Play Catan

Catan is a card game, as well as a board game, which has some twists that might make it interesting for your children. You can also use this game to get your children to work on developing their logical thinking and problem solving skills, instead of their spatial thinking.

Like most board games, Catan is divided into various parts. It has a playing area, a village or city that the players are trying to build up and eventually destroy, and a path that they need to walk on. While it looks very complicated, it is actually quite simple once you understand the rules of the game. Let’s take a look at how to play the game.

There are a number of different pieces of terrain that the players can place in the playing area of the game. Most of these pieces have a special power or trait that makes them useful for the purpose of playing the game. Some pieces are totally useless, while others can actually be used for the purpose of scoring points. The number of pieces that are used on a particular part of the playing area is known as the population. On each turn, the player who placed the piece on the chosen location gets to choose from among his cards which piece to place there.


In Catan, the player also has a card that can help him build up a city, or they can build up a town center. They can then move their civilization towards the area where the town center is. However, if they do not wish to build a town center, they may instead decide to move their civilization towards a point on the board. There are also other kinds of cards that the player can play in order to accomplish the same thing.

In addition to the pieces that the player can put on the board, he can also use his own resources to accomplish this. He can have supplies that he receives from the purchase of pieces and sometimes some of the items that he builds up during the course of the game. These items will often be used to add to the strength of the town center or the other locations on the board that are currently being built up.

In a Catan board game, the player does not have to worry about building up a city. What he needs to do is attack each player in turn, and in doing so, he will be putting a territory and his civilization up for attack. During his turn, the player will usually check the terrain that is being played in the area on the board and see if it will give him an advantage.

This could mean that it will provide him with an area of refuge if there are no other players in that space. Or it could mean that it provides an area where the player can hide if there are no other players in that space. Depending on how the player chooses to use these places, they can either help them find a way through the playing area, or give them a chance to escape if they are being attacked by another player.

In a Catan game, each player has a special path that they walk down, but they need to use that path if they want to complete their goal of destroying the cities of the other players. With several different types of cards, they can sometimes decide to take a different path through the playing area of the game. If they are successful in doing so, then they will not only achieve their goal but will also score points to show that they defeated a player.
