Fans of Settlers of Catan
Hello! Just joined this community and excited to see so many other people addicted to this game. I am spreading the word through my friends, and lots of them are buying their own sets for practice, and then getting in touch for tournaments!
I'd love to expand the options with Seafarers as well, but only have a German set, with a slightly ropey English translation. I've played a few times, but it never seems to go very well. I wonder if there are any experts out there that could possibly advise me where we are going wrong.
What's all this about moving ships? Can't really see why you would want to, unless you could move a whole LINE of ships. After you have sailed to one island, and built a village, it would be good to use the same ships to sail somewhere else. Rules seem to be fairly clear that this isn't the point though... so what is?
Also, in the versions where you have to discover what each hex is, after landing there - how do you decide which number goes on that particular hex?
How is the pirate different from the robber?
Many many many thanks to anyone who has the time to help me out. :)
