    My friend recently just got this and we've all been playing it non-stop. Out of all the strategy board games that I have played this is one of the most balanced despite being so simple.

    I have a friend who owns this, and we would play almost every weekend. Its really fun if you have enough people to play with. I find it with the minimum amount, its not as great when you have close to the max amount of players allowed. Though, it does take longer to play then. :D

    Yep, its a great game with simple rules that still leave a lot of room for devious strategy. You should try out some of the expansions, like the 5-6 player expansion, cities and knights, and whatever set it has with the fishing and other game scenarios.

    A friend gave it to me as a Christmas gift. Lots and lots of fun. But nobody ever rolls numbers that I need! :banghead:

    I play this game a lot. One of my friends owns it and she brings it, along with some of the various expansions, to our gaming club every now and then. It's not a game I can play over and over again, but it is one of my favorites.

    I used to play this game a lot along with Munchkins. For some reason we could never beat this friend of ours. It'd be 3 on 1 and he still wins. After 1 of our friends moved away we stopped playing though. Too bad.

    I've played Settlers for about 10 years now, tons of fun. I prefer the basic game with expansion set(s) for additional players, but not the cities or seafarers add-ons. Nothing as fun as playing the monopoly card to get everybodies ore when it's time to upgrade to cities.

    Nothing promotes death threats in my gaming group quite like a game of Catan. Except for maybe Diplomacy.

    What expansion set is the best? I have the base set right now and I'm thinking about getting an expansion set. I heard there was a sea one, a knight one, and traders and barbarians one?

    i LOVE settlers, me and my friends play it, and it's easy for new people to pick up. i played a ton on XBL and then got the physical game with the 5-6 player expansion. it's a blast.
