Hi there,

Firstly, I am sorry for asking a question that has no doubt been asked a 100/1000/1,000,000 times before.

I've just delved into Catan for the first time and have bought the current edition - HERE

I am trying to set up the board using the two player variant I found via the forums here - THIS ONE

Will this setup work with the edition I have - the ports etc will obviously not be in the exact same places as in the instructions because of the new frame pieces in the edition I have - is it just a case of replacing the removed tiles with ocean tiles (flip them over?) and just extending the reach of the harbours? Does that sentence even make any sense at all?!

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks

Didn't your game come with two sided frame? One side with harbors and the other without? Then it should also have small harbor chits (odd shape, 5 sides) for use with the side without harbors? You can place those anywhere you want.

P.S. This belongs in the variant forum.

I recommend using the official 2 player rules from the Traders and Barbarians rulebook (pages 6 and 7). You only need 20 coins/chits/tokens to make that work. Those rules will work well, and are designed for the game you bought.

You are right - it did come with those.

Thanks for pointing that out, appreciated!

And apologies for the post in the wrong forum.
