A couple of years ago Adrian Orange told us about a board game called Settlers of Catan. We forgot about it until his friend Flint Jamison enthused about it on his visit to Manchester. On account of one of our best friends last name is 'Settle' we thought it would make a good present and so we gave him 'Settlers of Catan' for his christmas in 2007. Since then we've played it, and its variant 'Cities & Knights', pretty much every week. It is amazing. Buy it now! Don't look back!
Last week was Laetitia's birthday. Lucy and Nick bought her the seafarers expansion pack, which is what you see above. Seafarers means islands and ships and exploration as well as the harvesting, trading, building of the basic game. Yes!
