Klaus Teuber announced this expansion in a newsletter in December. The German version should be out in February. The big question is whether it will be an expansion like Seafareres / Cities & Knights or "only" like "Historische Szenarien" (but I think/hope it will be a "real" expansion like Seafarers / Cities & Knights).

On german sites (eg http://www.spielbox-online.de/) they are now talking about this expansion, a dice-variant and a junior variant.

There are still no more clues as to what the expansion will be. No, this is not an expansion for the card-game.

Catan-the dice-game is already listed for 5,99 euro at several german online-stores. On some forums they suggest the dice would show the diferent resource plus the robber.

The junior variant will possibly be the german version of Simply-catan.

At catan.com you can find more information about this expansion (so far only in German). I guess some of you might be disappointed, but it is more a collection of scenarios, some of them already known.

The first scenario, The Fishermen of Catan (Die Fischer von Catan) has been available in Germany and the Netherlands and even has its own entry at the boardgamegeek at The Settlers of Catan: The Fishermen of Catan

The rivers of Catan (Die Flüsse von Catan) seems to be similar to The Great River ( The Settlers of Catan: The Great River ) since you get gold if you build settlements near the river, but in this scenario you can also build bridge over the river. If you are too greedy and try to control the river all by yourself your prestige will fall and you might loose up to two victory points...

The next scenario The Great Caravan (Die große Karawane) has also been out for a while ( Die Siedler von Catan: Die große Karawane ).

In the fourth scenario Barbarian Invasion (Der Barbarenüberfall) barbarians are invading Catan and you try to stop them with knights (possibly soldier in the Mayfair edition, since they also replaced the knights in the original Settlers game with soldiers).

For the last scenario Barbarians and Traders (Barbaren & Händler) you get new hexes, one for the castle, one to produce glass, one to produce marble. You try to rebuild Catan after the invasion, i.e. restore the castle of Catan for the high council. You get gold and victory points if you finish tasks in the castle, but to do so you have to travel back and forth to the castle on your roads (or other player's roads if you pay them to let you use their roads) and there are still some barbarians around who interfere with your transports...


Additionally to those five scenarios the expansion will also include rules how to play Catan with two players (probably Teuber's rules that were published last year), the event cards Catan: Event Cards, and rules how to play the game with a "friendly robber" and a "harbour master".

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Convention Preview News: Die Siedler von Catan: Händler & Barbaren - The Third Catan Expansion


This March sees the release of the third major Settlers of Catan expansion: Händler & Barbaren (Traders & Barbarians). Here’s a description of what’s inside the box:

“Händler & Barbaren” is the third expansion for The Settlers of Catan. It’s independent of the Seafarers and Cities & Knights expansions, but it can be combined with them as well. Traders & Barbarians contains three large new scenarios and several variants for the basic Settlers game.

No Cataner will ever say that life is boring, because new adventures always lie beyond the horizon.

As soon as you come near the coastline, you see dark smoke climbing into the sky. Once again the predatory barbarians are attacking the coastal cities. Where are the courageous knights who will stand against these wild hordes?

Meanwhile, in the north, a place for the rules—the Catan council—must be built. Marble, glass, sand and tools are needed, and you’re in charge of the wagon trains.

In the south, caravans pass through the desert, nomads trading valuable wool for merchandise. Will you direct the caravan to your advantage or dry up in the desert?

But that’s not all—on Catan, there’s always more to experience! Make your fortune by being adventurous. Great wealth or bitter poverty—Catan will reveal all!


sounds like the caravan of catan will be added... hmm...

*oops... didn't know there was already a link... Catan: Traders & Barbarians ... sorry...
