Settlers of Catan Available on Nintendo Switch

Settlers of Catan is a popular board game originally published in 1995. It’s well known for being a strategy game with fairly simple rules requiring collaboration with other players, its hexagonal board design, and the complete and total headache it is to set the board up. At the start of the game, Catan is a large, uninhabited island fresh for the players to settle. The players arrive at roughly the same time, and start building settlements and roads at the corners of each hexagon. They have to be strategic about which hexagon to pick, because not only does each hexagon offer specific resources, but each has a number from 2-6 or 8-12. Two die are rolled every turn, and if a player is bordering a hex with the rolled number on it, they get resources from it.

Since the entire board has to be set up every time you play, which includes placing out all the hexes and placing numbers on each hex, it gets a bit tedious, but good news: it’s now available on the Nintendo Switch, which does all the setting up for you! Settlers is very fun once you get going, it’s easy to get into and there’s a lot of strategy that goes into deciding where to build your settlements. A new generation can enjoy Settlers of Catan on Nintendo Switch for $19.99, which includes online and local multiplayer, new customization options, a campaign mode with different scenarios, and the Seafarer expansion. The Cities & Knights Expansion is also available as DLC for an additional $5.99.
