List of Settlers of Catan Strategies
Settlers of Catan is a board game created by Mayfair Games. In this strategy game there is only one basic way to win, which is to earn ten victory points. This sounds easy, but becomes much harder when you have competitive land and limited resources. Also, the game is based on luck, and if you find yourself not getting the right rolls, or the resources you need for your normal strategy, it is always good to have a backup plan. So if you are finding trouble winning at this game, or you just want a new strategy to play with, below is a list of winning strategies. Each one contains a link to another hub which explains each strategy in more detail:
