Description Edit | History

Settlers of Canaan takes place in the territory of Canaan off the coast of the Great Sea. Each Player represents a tribe of Israel as they seek to settle the land of Canaan. The time period of the game spans the time of Joshua's conquests of Canaan (Joshua), the turbulent years ruled by judges (Judges) through the choosing and crowning of King David (I & II Samuel).

The game uses the same basic mechanics as Settlers of Catan but adds some unique elements, similar to the Historical Scenarios. In the case of this game, players build the wall of Jerusalem by contributing bricks. The player who contributes the most bricks earns victory points and the right to use a special "rule-breaking" power of his/her choosing. This is contested in the same manner as "the longest road" from Settlers.

The German version does not use the build Jeruselem and stones mechanics. Instead there are 13 hero cards that generate God's help. There are events (cards) that take place. Also the German board has 5 hexes not on the English board and one changed hex as well.
Belongs to the Catan Series.

1 Kanaan overlay for English board to play German version
I used The Hexes of Kaahtan to make this overlay. It is placed on Jerusalem with the 6 Forest going on the 2 Mountain, the rest underneath on top of Jerusalem. The Hexes of Katan were printed at %85 to match the hex size on the Canaan board. http://hexes-of-kaahtan.blogspot.ca/

0 Deck Of Dice for Settlers Of Canaan
Tired of your rolls not following ratios predicted by probability? Print out these cards, sleeve them, and use them instead of dice. If you want to add a little of the unknown, shuffle in the Amen card--when you draw this card you reshuffle the entire deck (including discards) and draw again. All credit and thanks to gray0013 for the image!

3 Stones for Jerusalem
Here they are! I scanned in the original stones and reduced them. I haven't tried the size since I exported the original bmp file into a pdf, but this size should work. I know the original bitmap files were the right size.
