0 Arrowsmith House Rules for Catan with 5-6 Players
When playing Catan with 5 or 6 players, we find the Special Build Phase overpowered and chaotic. The purpose of the Special Build Phase is to mitigate the problem of accruing too many cards in the 5 or 6 dice rolls between turns compared to the 3 or 4 dice rolls in standard Catan. However, each player does not need an opportunity to build every turn, just once every 3 or 4 rolls of the dice. With this in mind, we have modified the rules such that each player only gets a special build after there have been 3 rolls of the dice since his last turn. In addition to the details of this house rule, the file includes the optional turn tokens for printing on card stock.
