Players are usually familiar with the rules for The Settlers of Catan. Occasionally, there will be players who are familiar with the game, but learned the game with house or unofficial rules thrown in. This event will be run with most recent ruleset from Mayfair Games (4th edition).
Several rules often come up as points of confusion:
- A "7" moves the robber on the first roll of the game. There is no "grace period" during players’ first turns.
- Players may trade and build in any order, and may do so multiple times in any order.
- Players may use ports on the same turn that they are obtained.
- The robber MAY be moved to the desert by a player (new with the 4th edition rules).
We will have copies of the most recent set of rules (4th edition) and the almanac in order to resolve any conflicts as well as our Tournament Director David Raakman to referee and make the calls that need to be made.
The order and ranking are based on (by importance):
- Number of wins: Two first-places beats all one first-place players
- Number of points: Sum of points across all games
- Percentage of points (PoP): Average percentage of points the person scored in each of their games
