This is something I came up with which I'm planning to try on one of our next lunch breaks. The variant is supposed to roughly mimic the game state after the first several turns and drop you right in the heat of the conflict, so the game can be played in 30-45 minutes with 4 players.

Setup:
- Each player starts with 6 colonies and 4 dice.
- The last player places a colony for FREE on the board, followed by the second last, until finally the first player places one. Then repeat in reverse order with a second colony (exactly like in Catan).
- Then draw AT cards, twice as many as the players. Repeat the same process in reverse order.
- Game proceeds as normal.

I'll write again when we try it (hopefully).

Cheers!
