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!
