a strange thing just happened. 2 player game, where one person has built all the settlements (6 total). my settlement has been upgraded to a city and has a city expansion, already. if i bought all the roads and all the knights, i would still only have 5 points.

is it possible for me to steal a settlement? or am i screwed?

Your Screwed. Your opponent played an excellent "Build all the settlements" strategy.

Lockouts are a definite possibility in this game. There are more ways than one that you can find yourself in the mid-to-late game without any possible way of hitting 10 points under any condition. It's really important to get settlements early, so that your point potential isn't capped below 10!
