Klaus Teuber and the KOSMOS staff have issued an official rules change to both the 3-4 player and 5-6 player version due to many suggestions, criticism and ideas from the board game community.

One of the issues was that - depending on the scenario - one does not even have to navigate by sea to win the game.

Details can be found on http://www.catan.com/CMS/content/view/542/76/lang,de_DE/
Currently the files are in German but translations are likely to follow soon.

Enjoy!

Did you use a time machine to travel back from the future to alert us about this forthcoming development?

Didn't know what to spend all this sweet GG on, so I bought the overtext.

So you have to navigate by sea to win now? It's easy to cut people off from the coast in 4 & 6 player games.

Sorry for the typo - I was signing some contracts today for 2009 and the wrong numbers just slipped from my hand...

My rough translation is that you will now get 2 bonus VP's instead of 1 for your first settlement on a new island. That applies to The New Meadow, The 4 Islands, and Through the Desert (not sure of the scenario translations). Also, the VP requirement to win the game will be increased slightly in those scenarios.

Sounds like this only affects Mayfair 4th edition and NOT Mayfair 3rd edition

Also, the "Nebelinsel" (fog island) scenario was replaced by the "Ozeanien" (oceania) scenario. The difference is you now have two seperate main islands and inbetween there is the unexplored area.

The link above doesn't work.

But the PDF is still available at http://www.catan.de/de/download/?Seefahrer_Reform_3-4_Spiele...

Any news on an English translation?

The revised english 3/4 rules are available here:
http://mayfairgames.com/game.php?id=57&stock=MFG3063&name=Ca...

I do not see revised 5/6 rules in german or english. Anyone else able to find revised rules in either language?

--edit--
OK, I see the german edition 5/6 here:
http://www.catan.de/de/download/?Seefahrer_Reform_5-6_Spiele...

don't see an english version available for this one, though..
