My sister has a tendency to go crazy with the Sheep (and matching Harbor).
At least half of the games with her she goes with this "strategy" whether intentionally or not (she wins her share of games).
As such, she builds a LOT of things using ONLY Sheep.
Pretty gruesome when you think about it.


Also leads to some bad puns.

I built this city.
Built this city on Rock and Wool!
Built this city.


Also, when something good happens, it is now customary to fist-pump and declare "(s)WHEAT!"

At least that's what I usually call them, since that's what the rulebook calls them. Oh, wait you can't tell what I voted for can you? Anyway, The Settlers of Catan rulebook lists the resources as:

The only resouce I disagree with the majority on is the rock, because it can get confusing to offer 'sheep or ore for wood'.

For my gaming group:

always brick

always ore, though my mother-in-law calls it rock

wheat and grain are used interchangeably

wool and sheep are used interchangeably

wood and lumber are used interchangeably

For some reason, I've always called it Timber, Big Bang Theory notwithstanding.
