Some folks in my family played it in the Family Room on Thanksgiving. I'd never heard of it before. I guess I don't get out to San Francisco enough....


i. love. this. game. (especially while drinking dark 'n stormies!)

also the spin off games are really fun, like "Settles of the Stone Age" and "Seafarers of Catan". they are well worth the $40 price tag and provide hours of entertainment and healthy competition. this is an awesome gift idea for anyone not "in the know". if you don't get one for someone else, then pick one up for yourself! it's also a great team-building exercise. note who becomes savage in their thirst for power, and who plays a more benevolent hand. there's a number of ways to win and all illuminate the Machiavellian tendencies in you and your friends... highly recommended.

Wired had a story about this game awhile back (http://www.wired.com/gaming/gamingreviews/magazine/17-04/mf_settlers). Apparently it's a hugely popular game in Europe, where it was created.
