Quick Takes: 2 players 45-60 minutes Ages 10+ Level 1 (easy to learn, easy to play, and FUN!)
Rivals for Catan is a fun way for two players to settle and develop the ever-mysterious and fantastic land of Catan. In the game, each player plays as a group of settlers who have come to Catan to conquer the land and become the more prosperous faction. Different than the classic Catan game, this version is played out entirely with cards. On each turn, players start with a roll of the dice to determine what the island produces as well to set a random event. This is where a bit of luck can help! After you have rolled the dice, you then decide how you want to trade (with the bank), build and protect your settlement.
Never the same, this casual card game can be both a great introductory game to those ready to move into deeper strategy as well as seasoned players looking for a challenge. There are three expansions included with this deluxe edition of the game, which increase the level of complexity and provide opportunities for unique gameplay.Why we chose this game for Board's Edge
