Just played a 6-player game last night that only went three hours or so. The game is a LOT of fun, but it's an aged dinosaur now that needs some TLC from GMT, Valley Games, or--gulp!--FFG. The setting shouldn't be changed (heaven forbid!), just the rules and art "refreshed" for our 2012 world.

Settlers of Catan does not improve with your house rules. The best option if you don't like the rules as written is to just select another game.

What would you change in the rules?

Though I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with the rules, I am with Nate in hoping for an update if this ever does get reprinted. The rules are just giant blocks of text, and could certainly be worded better. If nothing else, a reprint of this game would be nice, as it's an awesome game that is seriously under-appreciated due to a lack of availability

You don't think a retheme to the corporate world would be more relevant for our 2012 world?

As far as I can tell, they do another print run whenever they run out. All the game shops I frequent in Switzerland always have copies in stock. However, the Fata Morgana prints a certain home-made quality. You will have to assemble some parts of the game before playing.



There are also some differences in the rules:
Rules different in English edition?
Fata Morgana vs. Avalon Hill

You can order copies from Fata Morgana here.

Nah--it's more fun with the musical chairs of Russian politics. Ideally, you put together a game with the early era Commies, the imaginary ones from the regular game, and a set of modern Russian/Soviet politicians.

The corporate world is not vicious enough for a reprint!

I think the Union World of thugs and the cut-throat union bosses

who belong to the so called 1% yet claim to be part of the 99%,

is really apt for such a reprint!

I mean really, the hypocrisy and thuggery of Union Leaders is so

similar to the hypocrisy and thuggery of Kremlin bosses as to be

indiscernable.

Think of all the Union Bosses who could be substituted easily for their

Soviet Union counterparts! Pun intended!

Now that would be a game!

That would be a reprint worth buying!!
