I'll trade you two sheep for a brick.
The Settlers of Catan pits you against other players in a race to 10 points. Each city and settlement that you build will help you achieve this victory, as well as owning the longest road or points from development cards.
The game starts with the tiles randomize to form an island and all each tile getting a random number. You place down two settlements and roads connecting to each one. From there each turn consists of rolling two dice and players collecting resources if they control a city or settlement on the borders of that number, trading cards with other players, and building or buying. Simple enough.
The Settlers of Catan is has a high replay value as we have been playing this game for years. There are other versions of this game, but we have never tried them out. You can also find online versions of the game, but again I haven't looked around as much. I prefer to sit around a table with friends or even family members and play. This one is highly recommended by my play group, and is the only board game that some of them play as well. So what you waiting for, grab your lumber and wheat and get to building.
Any other games we should try out?
