Settlers of Catan Box Game The Settlers of Catan game is considered a Gateway game, one of the most influential board games of recent decades for the general public. The skills required in the game are strategic thinking, resource management and the ability to trade (trading resources and various transactions is the main interactive element between the participants in the game).

The goal of the game is to be the first to score 10 victory points and the way to score points is very simple. Each settlement is worth a point, a city is two, the longest road (a sequence of at least 5 roads) is worth two points, the largest army (at least three active soldiers) is worth two points, and a card that is worth a point is hidden among all the open cards. The first to reach ten points wins.
