Explore Catan! In Catan: Explorers & Pirates you’ll build harbor settlements, ships, settlers, and sailing crews and set out across mysterious seas in search of new lands, spices, fish, and gold fields. Challenge pirates on land and sea as you seek to win renown. Use your ships to carry settlers and claim faraway territory. Chart unknown waters and return with rich cargo. Should you prove the most able explorer and be the first to complete your noble mission, you’ll become master of Catan!
Catan: Explorers & Pirates includes 5 novel scenarios, each of which builds upon your previous experience. All are easy to learn and rich in character. In each, you explore an unknown sea by ship and build settlements on the discovered islands.
Scenario 1 (“Land Ho!”) introduces you to harbor settlements, ship building, exploration, and overseas settlements-the most important basic rules of this expansion. Each subsequent scenario introduces a new mission and its simple new rules. The game gradually culminates in scenario 5 (“Explorers & Pirates”), which incorporates all of these new themes in an exciting and compelling campaign of exploration and piracy!
