And then I think about my own game revolution. When did I become so knowledgeable about board games? And then time to dig deep and think about all the board games and why I enjoy playing them. If you are a serious gamer, then this blog may not be for you. Heck, at that point, I should be reading your blog. But anyway, if you want to be a gamer or want to expand your horizons about board games, stay put. If you want to know about the different types of games out there, hang tight. We are going to take the next step from the Monopoly and Scrabble. We are taking the next step from the games we grew up with.
Points are scored for longest roads, largest army and for the settlements and cities you own. The strategy elements in this game are plentiful. Yes, there are dice so there is the luck of the draw, but I have won this game by buying strategic locations and having certain resources. If you are past Ticket to Ride, this is the next best thing. And the board is variable so every time is a different board and a different strategy so it will take a while to get tired of this game. The game is for upto 4 players after which you’ll need an extension to make it 4-6 players. The game is 25 years old and is still one of the gold standards of the modern gamer. If you don’t own this game, then stop now and click on the link(s) above because this is the next best thing since sliced bread. Please note, I will be posting my top strategies for Catan in a future blog.
Hmmm. Well, there’s a randomizer app. It’s going to take a while. So, just enjoy the variability that this game comes with. To start, I would just buy Dominion and then if you enjoy it a lot, move on to Intrigue and after that, you should qualify to write this blog.
