A must have, since you've hooked all these people and now you need the extra pieces so they can all play.

Great expansion for when you have more than four people. Playing with 5 or 6 players generally means there will be a lot more trading between the players than in a standard four player game.

I find that playing with 6 makes things a little too constricted and therefore feels less enjoyable and more cut-throat as players use roads to cut each other off earlier than usual.

I find myself playing mostly 5 player games at the moment and for that reason, the expansioni is great. Though personally, I almost feel that buying a second copy of the Settlers of Catan would make a better investment and you could just paint the roads and settlements a different color. Effectively allowing two groups of 4 to play (for tournaments?) or combining for up to 8 players (if it's feasible).

Adds 2 more colors to the choices, and some expansion to the other game materials to accomidate the possibility of more players. I like it just for the green pieces you get to play with.

The extra tiles help tranform this game to allow for the extra players. Good for large group but you don't need it otherwise. I own 2 copies, one is very beat-up and the other unopen. Both are from Kosmo.

I love that I can now play the game with 3-6 players but it is a shame that an expansion is required for 5-6 players. The rule changes to suit 5-6 players work very well and the games don't take that much longer.

[Original comment] We generally play only games that allow 5 or 6 players, so this expansion is necessary for us to play Settlers of Catan. It adds enough pieces to the original to make an excellent 5-player and 6-player game.

(December 2006) Now, we need games for 7 players. By modifying some rules and adding some components, we can use this expansion to accommodate all 7 of us.

May 2009 -- Since we always play Settlers with either 5 or 6 players, this extension is a must for us.

Dec 2010 - We have enjoyed this game very much, and it remains a favorite. I never tire of playing it.

October 2011 -- This long-time family favorite continues to be at or near the top of our selection lists for game days. We always play with at least 5 players, which makes for a crowded map. The negotiations, blocking, the moans over the dice rolls, and the surprises (like stealing the Longest Road to win the game) keep it high on our list of favorites. I doubt we will ever tire of this game, which is about as high a compliment as can be made.

November 2012 -- We may play this game forever. Our daughter and son-in-law purchased the fancy version with wood tiles, which makes the game much more attractive. It continues to be a family favorite.

2013-November: We haven't changed our minds about this game -- it's still a family favorite.

After the 100+ plays it's getting tougher to win. Everyone has not only caught on to the strategies of the game, but the strategies of other players.

Like Settlers of Catan, only for more people. The added building phases make the robber less threatening than in a 4 player game. I like it a lot.

Plays just as well with 6 as it does with 4. It makes a bigger game board, which is needed with the 1-2 extra players, so you will need a bigger table space. This is a nice expansion.

I finally had a chance to play and it's good. But I don't play with the rule that you can play a building from your hand anytime.

Instead I increase the amount of card you can hold in your hand (5p=8, 6p=9) before the thief passes.

The first time I played with the 5-6 player expansion, it felt like it was just too long. However, after playing with the expansion several times, I actually prefer having more people play. The key is to keep the added building phase from adding too much time. As long as at least one person tries to keep things moving along, it works perfectly fine. The standard game almost seems too quick now.

A much needed extension whenever you have 5-6 players wanting a game. Play with the original rules (no building between turns) for an experience that is often just as tense as the base game.

Adds a 5th or 6th player and a bigger board to Settlers of Catan. Scales well and is still very fun with more players. As an added bonus green is one of the new colors.

Contrary to popular belief, this is actually a lot of fun. People whine about the concept of building on other peoples turns, and then usually never play the game or discard at 12 cards. The game is SO MUCH MORE INTENSE with 5 or 6 players and out of turn building! Nothing is more epic than beating someone with 10 or 11 victory points because they can't win unless it's their turn!

A lot of people feel like adding a couple more players makes Catan longer, but it's not as big an addition as all that. Mostly it means more trading, more interaction, and more Catan. Those are all good things.

Spel voor 5 gaat sneller vooruit dan het gewone spel, ookal moet je tot 13 punten. Dankzij het tussentijds bouwen, ook als je niet aan de beurt bent.
