Let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want an invite and I’ll send you one to a game you can join.
It’s a great board game that takes place on an island called Catan. The players complete to become the dominant force on the island. While there is no actual combat in standard game there are several ways to be passively aggressive. This means that players have to trade, luck and negotiate to winning.
The players place their settlements on the edges of the tiles. They get resources every time the number on one of the tiles next to their settlements is rolled using the dice. This means placement is everything.
We played a couple of games and had loads of fun. More games are planned soon. I highly recommend getting a copy of this game. With a quick learning curve it should be a great game for quiet (or not so quiet) nights in with mates.
