Each of the five new scenarios are expanded to add two players. This means more fishing grounds, river tiles, a second oasis, second castle hex, and more/alternate trade hexes. These extra hexes and supplies is worth the money.

Some scenarios are as good as, or even better than, the 3-4 player game. Most transition well to the larger game.

I like any Catan game with 3 or 5 players. 4 and 6 get crowded. If we have 4 players, I sometimes set it up for a 5-6 player game.

Allows the "Traders & Barbarians"-scenarios to be played with up to six players, therefore a welcome expansion if you regularely play with a larger group.

The Fishermen of Catan and Harbor Master expansions included in this set are must have/use in my opinion. I haven't played any of the rest of it.

again, 5-6 player Catan is just too many people unless you can somehow convince people to make extremely fast turns, which never happens.

All those 5-6 Players exp. to CATAN are bad. The game is originally designed to 4. With 5 or 6 it seems to be broken. Only if you REALLY want to play with green pieces.

Just as the best Catan expansions just get better with more players, Barbarian's additions just get slower and more frustrating with more players.

Aside from swiping the Rivers and Event cards to add to my main set, this gets no play.

Settlers is a fine game and the expansions are really fun, but adding a 5th or 6th player does not increase the fun.

Likes: Adds up to 2 more players...

Dislikes: Adding 2 more players really changes how the game is played. Being able to build after each person's turn not only drags out the game too long, it also favors certain strategies. At this point, I will refuse to play 5-6 players Settlers 99% of the time.

Any Catan Fan must own the 5-6 player expansions IMHO. Yes, they make the game longer, but the special building phase counters for that. Why turn down my favourite game just because I have more than 4 players?
