Description Edit | History

This expansion contains everything you need to include two additional players in Starfarers of Catan, the exciting, fast moving, science fiction game. Here you'll find 2 mother ships, 2 sets of playing pieces, additional cards, 2 reusable gameboard overlays, and a new alien race ripe for encounter.

Now you can play one of five or six Starfarers commissioned to explore the galaxy, build new colonies, and expand commercial ties with the various races of the Galactic Council. Accept the challenge! Careful diplomacy, clever trade, a firm stance against pirates, and the bold colonization of distant planetary systems will win you the support of humanity and the other races of the galaxy and make you the Council's Galactic Ambassador!

Belongs to the Catan Series.

The plastic teeth of the mothership pieces where the boosters attach are fragile and prone to snap off. The manufacturers developed grey plastic booster rings to be placed over the relevant part of the ship piece. While these rings may have been included in later-packaged copies of the game, most copies do not include them. Mayfair Games' customer service will provide the rings upon request.
