Gather, Trade and Build
One of the most successful games of all time, Settlers of Catan is a trading and building game set in the mythical world of Catan. Players assume the roles of settlers, each attempting to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. Players are rewarded points as their settlements grow and the first to reach a set number of points is the winner.
Simple but engaging gameplay
In Settlers of Catan, players collect resources and use them to build roads, settlements and cities on their way to victory. Each turn, a player rolls a die to determine which lands yield resources. Players can then trade resources, construct buildings and buy cards. The board itself is variable, making each game a little different from the next.
On the Road to Settlement
The rules are straightforward and include plenty of illustrations. There's a starting map that shows a well-balanced set-up for beginners to follow and directions that allow more advanced players to lay out the map of the island at random. Either you customise your board or go with the simple setup, guaranteed no game will be the same.
Exploring and Developing Catan
The board consists of 19 terrain hexes surrounded by the ocean. Each type of terrain produces a different type of resource: brick, wool, ore, grain or lumber. There's also a desert hex that produces no resources – this is where the robber, a resource thief, can be placed. As the game progresses, players use resources to build roads along the edges of these hexes and settlements or cities on the intersections where three hexes meet.
Best-Selling Game of the Year
It's easy to see why Settlers of Catan has been awarded numerous times. Fun and engaging for both children and adults, the variable nature of the playing field makes both first-time players as well as casual and hardcore gamers keep replaying the game. Due to the widespread popularity of the original game, several expansion sets are available that allow you to explore new aspects of the game or add more players.
Play the game that started a revolution
First published in 1995 in Germany, Settlers of Catan was one of the first German-style board games to achieve popularity outside of Europe. Since its release, Settlers of Catan has become the base of a hugely successful franchise, with multiple engaging expansions, the core game of many collections and a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends.

I would have given it a five star rating if the dice roll was eliminated making this game completely based on strategy. The luck part does get neutralized however as the game continues so that's fine.
The slightly tedious point is that it takes around 15 mins to set-up. Otherwise, it is good time pass for nearly an hour.
Don't worry about the fact that this is meant for 10+ years. My daughter is able to comfortably understand the game and play it fine. She needs to be explained from a scenario and what action to take for the first few times and then it is all good. The only drawback that I see for her playing is that she will not know the theory or reasons behind some of the moves but would be able to do them as a matter of observation or practice.
