As part of the growing expansion of the Catan family of products, the base game is simply called "Catan" in all countries and languages. This is the 5th Edition of the Original Game, produced in 2015.
This 5th Edition is completely compatible with your 4th Edition games. The die lines and die cut remain identical, meaning you could mix and match a 4th Edition copy of Settlers with a 5th Edition of Seafarers without difficulty or compatibility issues. The main noticeable differences are in the artwork on the cards and better clarification in the rules.
Trade! Build! Settle! In Catan, players are recent immigrants to the newly populated island of Catan. Expand your colony through the building of settlements, roads, and villages by harvesting commodities from the land around you. Trade sheep, lumber, bricks, and grain for a settlement, bricks and wood for a road, or try to complete other combinations for more advanced buildings, services, and specials.Trade with other players, or at local seaports to get resources you might lack. The first player to achieve 10 points from a combination of roads, settlements, and special cards wins!
