Brings more sernarios into play, however adds more time to gameplay which can be bad if you are hurt for time.

If you like Settlers at all, this is kind of a no-brainer. I wish the Pirate worked a little better, but there are some variants in the Settlers Book that help quite a bit. With the introduction of the "scenario" format, you get more of a mixed bag - some scenarios are more interesting than others - but they're all good at least, and add a new layer of interest and depth to Settlers with virtually no added complexity.

Excellent game. I have owned it and played it intensively for 6 months. So far I have only noticed 2 flaws: the development cards are under used usually and the box's lack of complexity (ie storage racks) results in a usually high set-up time. Therefor I have bought a toolbox with compartements for the peices. Make sure you buy one in which you can fit the hexes, since they are relatively big. The larger peices, such as the frames and the construction costs are best stored in a separate box.

We only play "A New World" scenario. It adds so much to the original game which was already very good. The set up phase is no longer so decisive though still very important. The board is even more varied and there is a wider choice of strategy. Definitely worth adding this expansion. Very popular with many friends.

Yeah you have to own the Settlers of Catan sets, but man this version si so much fun, addign in a hint of piracy into your game makes a world of difference. You ar eno longer fighting for control of just one island, but now a continent and smaller islands. These games blow me away everytime!

An excellent expansion to the base game, which itself is a masterpiece. Definitely worth the money. One of the more interesting features of the game is the scenarios that have players flipping over the tiles as their boats sail to them, revealing either more water or a land square. Seafarers is something my regular group whips out at least once a session.

Great expansion to a great game. The scenarios are a mixed bag, but being able to sail to other islands is just what the game needed to prevent it from becoming a bit stale after 100+ plays. Combining this with C&K is the ultimate Settlers experience for me. Too bad it lasts for more than two hours in that constellation...

It's nice to have, but not crucial. Mixes okay with Cities and Knights, but none of the scenarios seem tailored to C&K play. It does have good three player boards, though. Good novelty.

I think this game fixes some small problems of the original SoC:
sheep aren't garbage anymore; the initial setting is important
but not so overwhelmingly and the random setup goes one step further. But somehow I miss the elegance of the original.

I've heard a lot of folks say that SEAFARERS isn't really necessary to get the most out of SETTLERS. I have to disagree with that completely. I like expansions that impart on their base games new choices and possibilities without needlessly adding complexity or clutter and I think the simple addition of islands, seas, and ships really brings out another layer of theme as well as new decisions. Combine SEAFARERS with CITIES AND KNIGHTS and you've pretty much got the best CATAN experience possible.

A step above regular Settlers (and that's saying something). The exploration scenarios are especially fun, if a bit frustrating if you get unlucky.

*Strongly* recommend playing with a dice deck.

Once we added the ships, found it nigh-impossible to do without them. Usually do the big random setup rather than the scenarios (which means no gold, but that's OK I think), plus the Fishermen mini-expansion.

Expands the base game without any major changes--ships allow water movement. Makes the Settlers of Catan infinitely replayable. One of my favorite expansions. Gave me everything I wanted and needed in the game. I've thus never felt the need to acquire any other Catan expansions.

What on earth can be said about Catan, with exploration and pirates! Honestly though, this is a VERY fun addition to Catan for me and my group, we loved how it added to the experience and gave us the option to have the wonder of the unknown be revealed to us turn by turn, OR use the pre made maps to spread out, really good fun for the Catan loving set! The score speaks for itself to me, too many plays to note them all here, and counting, and will NOT be tired of it any time soon, if ever.

I rate this a 10 with the 4th edition scenarios which added some interesting elements to the game, in addition to the ships and differing island set ups.
