The Straights love board games, including Settlers of Catan.

I get bored to tears watching my guy friends play risk and settlers of catan. They are always trying to teach me, but I can't bring myself to let them, because it looks too boring. Also I'm not very good at strategizing.

I'm not particularly fond of Risk myself. Settlers is a whole other kind of board game. You should try it.

I recently entered this variation of Settlers of Catan in a contest by the game's publisher. You can convert other people's settlements, cities, and roads to your own. Give it a try sometime. Some people I've played it with tell me they prefer this version to the original game.

The attached ZIP file has the full rules and a tile you can print out and put on a blank tile or the back of the desert.

Converts of Catan by Doug Parmer


Story

The resource rich island of Catan has become a settled realm. Cities and universities, as well as plenty of people, now abound. Like many lands with diverse populations, Catan has developed a wide variety of religious activity. While the different faiths are not seeking to win followers by way of violent means, all are ambitious and eager to spread their teachings throughout the land.

Wanderers in Catan are seeking the fabled Hallowed Ground. This plot of sacred soil is known far and wide for wondrous Relics found within its boundaries. Worshippers of every faith have discovered them on the Hallowed Ground seeking wisdom and truth among the mist and clouds. These Relics hold exuberant value on Catan, for surely their possession is evidence of blessings and protection from above. This prominent worth inspires even the most devout to follow the faith of another who holds on to these blessed artifacts.

New Components
  • Hallowed Ground – produces Relics on die rolls of 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, and 11.
  • Relics – Sacred artifacts used to convert structures of an opposing faith. Players may utilize coins such as quarters to represent Relics.
  • The Heathen – Functions the same as the robber. Use the normal robber piece.
  • The Priest – Blesses a resource tile with double production for all adjacent settlements and cities. Players may utilize the merchant from Cities and Knights of Catan or any light piece from a chess set to represent the Priest.

Oh, it's not that confusing!

There are many far more confusing games out there.
