Wired Magazine called Settlers of Catan the ""Monopoly Killer."" Settlers of Catan has sold over 15M copies worldwide.
According to Wikipedia, "the game has rapidly become popular in part because its mechanics are relatively simple, while its dynamics are quite complex. The game is well suited for family play, since at no point in the game is any player eliminated, and players who are behind can strive towards goals that are within their reach."
You'll learn how to play Settlers of Catan, intricate strategies, and how to beat your friends every time."
