NOTE: This is a game expansion - it requires ownership of the original game of Catan to play.
This 5th Edition of Cities & Knights 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 Traders & Barbarians without difficulty or compatibility issues. The main noticeable difference in this 5th edition is the artwork and better clarification of the rules.
In Catan: Traders & Barbarians, you'll discover exciting, new ways to explore Klaus Teuber's award-winning game series. You can now play with just two players! Add a harbormaster, a friendly robber, or special events. Play with a wealth of new wooden pieces and capabilities. You can even link your games to create an intriguing campaign. Use these four variants and five scenarios to reinvent your Catan experience!
Also contains 5 Challenging New Scenarios:
The Fishermen of Catan: Fish in the great lake or try casting in rich coastal shoals. A fresh, expanded, and updated version!
