Только подумал смастерить общую карту и переделать под нее правила, как наткнулся на уже существующую XXL.. вот и попробуем.

This is a lot like playing the regular board'n'tile game. Especially since we printed this on Super A paper, and use the wooden bits from standard Catan. It is fun to use dice instead of cards.

Played once. I like this better than the regular Catan Dice; it's more like Catan, and there's actually player interaction!

Plays slowly. Probably better with four players, though frustration and competition will then increase.

My wife and my mother both really like the simplicity of the Catan Dice. I really like that this version has everyone playing on the same map, which allows at least a little bit of interaction while playing.

So nice when we can reach a compromise; they get the simplicity of the dice rolling and I get to at least play a little bit of strategy along with it.

Yet another variant for Catan Dice Game. This time more interaction. However longer game play. I am still wondering whether this is a good trade off.

This dice variant offers the closest resemblance to the original Catan.

The only variant of the Catan Dice Game that i want play. One board for all players produces emotions. The board is small even with 3 players. You need luck, but you have some choices. The game is not so good like the boardgame (no trades with other players, no thief, no cards), but good as a travel game.

My addiction to dice influenced my purchase of this game. And why not, the dice are cool! However, the normal game as designed is nothing more than solitare. I will only consider playing Catan Dice if this XXL variant map is used (check the file section). I recommend laminating the map and using wet erase markers. Makes for a decent game while traveling.

Best of the three variants but only good as a 4 Player game. 3 player needs symmetric setup

Picked the basic Catan Dice Game off a sale just for this, the base game is just Catan-themed Yahtzee, but XXL involves some blocking and decisions to be made.

Basically it's Catan without trading that plays quick enough to make it a quite nice filler.

Not a good variant of Catan Dice. The reason is that you are no longer allowed to 'build through' unbuilt villages or cities, and that severely limits your freedom in using the dice result which is about the only way to can deal with their inherent randomness. Right now you must throw X, and then Y, and then Z; instead of having the option to roll X, Y, and Z in an order you find most appropriate. The Plus-variant remains my favourite. I've since thrown out all paper copies of XXL as I doubt I will be playing it again.

Start
Each player starts with a Street at the Coast, and must be at least 5 streets away from any other player. Use the dice from the Settlers dice game. The start player rolls 3 dice; each subsequent player rolls one more die, until all six are in the game.

Building
You can build anything your streets are connected to, but may not extend roads past an empty building site (or another player's building).

Knights
They can be "build" when one of your features is touching the hex the Knight is set on. You mark him with your Color when you do that. Knights can be used as in the base game as Jokers for your resource needs.

Longest Road
Minimum length = 5 streets. Worth 1 VP. Moves to different player when their road is longer.

Greatest Army
Minimum 3 Knights. Worth 2 VP. Moves to different player when their army is bigger.

Optional Rule: Fortresses
Anyone can build a fortress anytime. You need 6 same resources to do that (not just gold). Worth 2 VP.

The End
Settlements = 1 VP
Cities and Fortresses = 2 VP
First player to 10 VP wins.
