My wife and our friends have become addicted to Settlers. You have to play once or twice before the rules become simple, but it's fairly easy if you can learn with someone who has already played before. The game is pricy, but the change to the board layout with each new game and the aspect of chance involved with rolling the dice forces you to change your strategy each time you play; therefore, it's hard to get tired of the game and is worth the money.
Settlers is a fun game because it is strategic but doesn't take as long as a monopoly or risk would
The best board game I have played. Loads of replay value - the most difficult part is just playing through the first game with inexperienced players. Once you get how to play, it becomes a blast!
We love this game. Great price too. $10.00 less than anywhere else we could find.
I'm so excited to see a traditional distribution channel for this excellent game. The alternative online retailers don't have the same reputation that walmart.com does. I also appreciate that walmart.com is attempting to capture a different audience by offering unique products!
I absolutely love Settlers of Catan. It is such a fun and addicting game to play with friends and family. I especially love that the game board changes each time you play so that it never gets old and predictable!
Guest found game complicated.
This Board Game provided hours of entertainment over the Christmas break for my family. The teens stayed at home to play with Mom and Dad! We have now ordered the expansion packs to make play even more fun. Good strategic game and doesn't take as long as monopoly; important for people with shorter attention spans like me.
This is a really fun game! My husband hates to play games, but he admits that this is one he doesn't mind playing. The rules are complex, but well worth learning.
We are a family who loves games, and this was a big hit. However, the construction of the game needs improvement.
Settlers of Catan is an amazing game; I have owned it for years and still play it. It is a great game for families. My 5 year old daughter loves it, and has a review here: http://growingupgamers.blogspot.com/2010/12/my-first-review-settlers-of-catan.html This game is a great intro to boardgaming as a hobby. Gaming with your kids is great, developmentally.
Our family and friends, though not all, find Settlers to be a great strategy game that gives us an excellent distraction from the television. It usually takes an hour or so to play so I find it long enough to keep the interest without getting bored or distracted. The instructions take a little getting used to, but once understood, coming up with new strategies makes this a very fun and competetive game of settlement building and economic survival.
It's been compared to Risk and Monopoly - but it's SO much better. A combination of strategy and luck (anytime you have dice in a game - there's an element of luck) yet, it's like playing a different game each time depending on how you set up the board. Walmart had a wonderful price on this and the site to store saved me shipping too. We recently played the Barbarian Attack and it was great fun...will get some expansions in the future, I'm sure!
This game is a ton of fun. Anyone who enjoys strategy games like Risk or Monopoly will enjoy this game. The first time through takes a little getting used to but soon you'll be trying to make all sorts of resource deals and building the longest road on the way to victory. Great buy and the cheapest price we could find!
We got this game for our grown kids for Christmas. They played it for hours. We want to get the expansion sets so more of us can play at one time.
Enjoy the game, but they don't make it as durable as they used to. Rather thin pieces and small pictures and small print. But still, a fun game.
Great game! A lot of fun. Thank you for shipping it right away.
We played this game with visiting Dutch friends this summer called Kolonisten (Settlers in english) that they brought with them. Come to find out it was The Settlers of Catan. The game is fun, challenging, not too hard to learn. A great way to spend time with family & friends!
Catan is a fun and interesting game. My wife and brother and I play almost every night. It has great moves and keeps your attention. Thanks for free shipping and good price, Walmart!
This game is different from most strategy games I have played in that the board layout and odds change with every game, so a new strategy is required each time. This keeps the game interesting even after repeated play. In spite of this, the game can be played by a wide age range which makes it a good family or group game. This game is for up to 4 players only, but an extension can be purchased for around $16 so that 5 or 6 can play. The only problem encountered with this game was that some of the board pieces can get a little warped and not fit together well to hold the other pieces in place (the pieces fit together like a jigsaw puzzle and sometimes the border doesn't hold the inside pieces in place well). We just gently bent the pieces to a straight position and laid a heavy book on them for a while and they worked much better. A minor problem, really. I highly recommend this game.
