I love settlers, this is my favorite board game at the moment, and for good reason, i am the current reigning undefeated champion of my family....nothing feels better than trading with someone for one brick, then using that to win the game in the same turn....yeah....
Definitely the best game I've played. I also have a friend who has the whole lot of versions plus expansions including all the set games like Settlers of Canaan etc. He has an absolutely massive trunk and carts it around the whole country with him wherever he goes. Have to say I do quite like Starfarers.
Fun game to play, my family plays a lot and me and my sister bring our boyfriends/husband over to play too. It's so fun when we get all riled up in the game. The other day my sister called me an asshole because i stole her wheat, and my family doesnt curse very often around eachother.
We all play too nicely though, after about half an hour someone had enough points to win the game, but didn't show the development cards with points on them because he didn't want the game to end too quickly. A lot of times when i'm winning I'll be really nice to the other players and trade them whatever they want. We gotta learn to play more competitively
