Ok, I was looking at getting this game to play with me gf, but I am seriously confused about wtf is going on with this game. There's expansions and bundles and revised editions and upgrades and god knows what else.

So, as someone who has nothing from this game yet, and has no interest in learning German, what should I get to play this game? And if I get what you suggest, would I be able to easily get the expansions if I end up really liking this game?

If you just want to get started playing the Settlers of Catan Card Game, you can buy the base game and the expansion set just about anywhere as they are readily available. The base game should be enough to last you for a while to decide if you even want to expand. The expansion set includes about 6 different expansions for the game.

Here are ThoughtHammer's links just as reference:

Expansion set: http://thoughthammer.com/product_info.php?products_id=1489

To clarify what Gary said...

If you are new to the game, you can ignore everything that was released prior to the most recent edition! Start with the Basic Game 2006 Edition (see Gary's link); if that's to your liking, you can add the Expansion Set 2006 Edition (see Gary's second link). Note that the box art in Gary's links is different from the real box art for the new editions... Oy vey!

It got confusing for folks who owned earlier editions, but for newcomers it is quite simple. Enjoy the game!

Thanks for the clarification Dave. I've been under the weather a bit lately, so explaining my thoughts wasn't really done very well, you summed up my thoughts perfectly.

Thanks a ton guys, that clears everything up. I'd tip the lot of you, but I'm poor as dirt. So here's some a pirate and a mauve camel in lieu of cash.
