Great game! Has a much different feel than the Settlers board game, more complicated to learn.

Awesome 2-player card game! Very original with lots of card variety and challenging decisions on every turn. The "event die" adds just the right random element.

Personally, this game is superior to the board game version. The theme and strategy is more in depth, and you do not have to depend on other players. Also, it is only for two player, which is a benefit because it is increasingly difficult to find larger groups of people.

This review covers the expansions as well: Very unique. To say playing this game is satisfying is an understatement. It takes the genre and places you in the story line but also challenges you with strategy and logical thought. It's still resource management but without the emphasis on that factor that the board game has.

This is our favorite card game for quite a long time. The game mechanics, some hazard due to the dice, expansions (official and non-official ones) give it a great replayability. Resource management,building, trading and in some case cooperation (Pharaon & Pyramid expansion for example) give us lots of fun.

Wanna play the best board game ever but you're only two players?? Well, this card game perfectly transfers the 3+ player board game Settlers of Catan into a two player world! Outstanding conversion of the board game and easy to carry with you!

OWN Dec/02: GREAT 2-player game, but it HAS to be played with 2 gamers. If someone's only half into it, it wouldn't be good. I really enjoy the multiple strategies that can be employed, and then just enough luck in the mix to maybe foil those plans (or your opponent's). Lots of nice artwork, and gameplay is reasonable (1 hr) after a few games to get familiar with the cards.

This is really an excellent 2-player game that seems to play deeper and sometimes more satisfyingly than its larger brothers. There's considerably more to track and manage and there is some nice direct conflict. Victory points seesaw back and forth and the game between good players is usually a photo finish. Very highly recommended. The heretic in me wants to say this is actually a better game than the board game...it just might be due to the direct competition.

The first time I played this game a couple years ago I was unimpressed. I recently gave it another chance and I am glad I did because now its one of my favorites. It has all the moving parts, strategies, and combinations of a CCG that I like without all the messy deckbuilding stuff. The only negative is that its not the most "approachable" game because skillful play really necessitates that you have a pretty good working knowledge of all the cards - but thats the price you pay when you have a game with a lot of depth.

UPDATE: I have raised my rating to a 10. This game has great replayability for me and lots of paths to victory. My favorite expansion is Barbarians and Traders.

Great light-ish (bridging on gateway) two-player card game. Far better than Settlers of Catan, as the luck is far more tolerable. There is no way to get screwed when your numbers never come up, as you are going to produce something every turn no matter what. If only it supported more than two players..

Febuary 24th, 2007:
Raised from 8 to 9. This must have been an accident - it's the best game ever churned out of the Catan bandwagon. Although luck is moderate with the dice rolls and card draws, and the start is a race for the extra settlement, it's still a wonderful game that lasts just long enough for its pleasure value. I highly suggest this.

September 15th, 2007:
Raised form 9 to 10. A masterpiece of a game, very skillful, with a moderate amount of luck - easily one of the best games ever, and it does the Catan franchise proud.

Takes a little while to play the game but is quite fun. Can't wait to get the expansion to add more to it. Fills a good heavier 2 player game niche.

The game is loved by myself, my wife and my 10yr old son. We fell in love with it and this was the first game that my wife looked at and said that she wanted to try it. Usually I have to bribe her to try new games.

An amazing two player game - possibly my favourite. It takes the bones of Settlers proper, and feels like playing Settlers, but has all sorts of new complexities, strategies and choices (I understand it's akin to Settlers with Cities & Knights, but I haven't played that to comment). It is sort of San-Juan-meets-Settlers; San Juan is quicker (two player), but Settlers seems more involving. It really feels like you are creating your domain and watching your empire blossom, instead of the slightly abstract feel of your card-fest San Juan. And, to this end, the artwork on the Settlers cards is simply beautiful.

It always seems tense, exciting and varied. I recommend it to all gaming couples!

One of my most played games, most of them during college, when my girlfriend and I would played it almost daily, sometimes twice. Sees a lot less table time now, mostly because of its relative length and complexity compared with many other two-player games (having jobs and kids doesn't help).
Of all the games I would like to play lots more than I do, this is at the top of the list.

This one is my favorite of all the games I own and know. Beautiful cards, great resources system, flawless gameplay. But careful!!! This game changes your personality !!! After a few games you will notice you are not playing just for the fun anymore. Highly competitive and it has lots of luck. With the expansions you mitigate this more. Never forget to search the decks,... NEVER.
