Cities and Knights of Catan
Posted in Reviews
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:06 am)

Last night we played our first game of Cities and Knights of Catan—and it was fun! I'm not quite sure how, but I seem to win around 90% of the Catan games we play, and this one was no exception. The game is radically different from the other Catan games, and introduces Commodities (cloth, coin, and paper), a barbarian horde that invades Catan regularly, and knights that defend against them. I was a bit worried it wouldn't be fun for everyone, but we had a great time playing it, and stayed up until 1am finishing it.

    I play Catan and the Seafarers expantion, but have never tried Cities and knights.

    It looks diffacult learn.

    does it work with Seafarers?

    Yes it does, we played it last night with Seafarers, but it's not as exciting. I think you're a little too busy trying to defend from the Barbarians to expand. But other people may find it more interesting. With four players we barely had 2 ships on the board by the end of the game. Of course, that was also due to the availability of building resources, so it could have gone the other way.

    There are no official startup maps for Seafarers combined with Cities and Knights, though, so you have to come up with one on your own.
