Is it fun, esp. with a solitaire variant? i've never played any Catan games, so this would be my first. If you love or hate this one, speak up!!

Thanks in advance!

Klaus Teuber is one of the only desingers whose games i would buy sight-unseen. Every game of his I own is good, some of them are excellent, and a few of them are my favourites. I can't help you with Starship Catan specifically - but I think Teuber is a designer worth trusting!

Cheers!

Good luck!

Giles.

Mega dito!

I know the Starship game and I really appreciate it, thought it takes slightly too long in my view to play it often (2 hrs). But it's extreme fun!

Its a good two-player game, but I really doubt you could or would want to play it solitaire. You would lose a lot of the tension from the exploration (i.e. the pirates).

So that's a "no" on the solitaire end, then? i see a solitaire variant in the files, but i'm not sure if it is worth picking up to try...

laugh I highly recommend this two player game. When me and my girl want a really good two player game this is what we play. It is also a hit with my more hard core gaming buddies. In fact, this is the top two player game on the market.
