I just got Seafarers as a gift and was looking forward to playing it, but there is a small issue.

The setup requires using frame pieces from Seafarers and from the original Settlers game.

Here's the problem: my edition of Settlers of Catan (#483) has no frame pieces and never did.

What's the best solution?

Will Mayfair support the older edition by providing frame pieces for their older editions? I couldn't find any reference to this on their website.

Are there aftermarket frame pieces available for purchase?

I would appreciate the help of those in the know. Thanks.

The frame pieces really aren't necessary for gameplay.

If you have this:



and you just got this:



you can get this:



from here (or elsewhere):

There's a whole thread about it here (with input from Mayfair Games):

The Settlers of Catan™ Pre-2007 Adapter Kit™

Hope this helps!

That's exactly what I was looking for...I suspected I didn't really need them to play, but they will be nice nonetheless. Thanks for the quick responses.

OK, so if I purchase the newer edition of Seafarers, will it be compatible (playable) with my older edition of Settlers? I read the footnote (FAQ) on the CSInc site link to Seafarers, but it seemed a little vague.
