About the Game
Traders & Barbarians is distributed as the third major expansion for The Settlers of Catan, although it is actually a compilation of small expansions and variants. It is independent of the Seafarers and Cities and Knights expansions, but can be combined with them. This the 5 and 6 player extension for Traders and Builders to allow you to add up to two more players.
Well-tried variants such as 'Catan Event Cards', 'Harbourmaster', and 'Catan for Two' offer alternatives for customising the game to your own needs. In addition, the 2-player variant allows you to play the Base Game as well as all scenarios of this expansion against only one opponent.
Please note that this product is an extension, and requires other Catan products to play.
To play, you will need:
- The Settlers of Catan Base Game
- Catan Traders and Barbarians Expansion
- Base Game 5-6 Player Extension
A Campaign with Five Scenarios
As the 'Fishermen of Catan', we experience how fishing not only adds to the menu but also opens up completely new tactical possibilities.
In the second scenario, 'The Rivers of Catan,' the rivers prove to be true lifelines. If you build roads and settlements adjacent to the rivers, you can easily make a fortune. If you arrive too late, you may well become a poor settler and have a hard time trying to get rid of this disadvantage.
In the third scenario, nomads have settled in the oasis. Since they are lacking wool and grain, they send out caravans to barter for the coveted resources. Of course, everybody wants to profit from the 'Caravans', but sending the caravans to one’s own settlements isn't all that easy.
Catan’s wealth doesn’t go unnoticed. And thus it doesn’t take long until the 'Barbarian Attack' descends upon Catan’s coasts. Now it is imperative that the Catanians close ranks and train knights. The knights rally for battle - not altogether selflessly, because each captured barbarian is worth half a victory point.
The last scenario is titled 'Traders & Barbarians'. The barbarians have been driven off, and now it’s time to repair the damage. Soon, Catan’s roads and paths are bustling with baggage trains - marble and glass must be delivered to the castle, sand to the glassworks, and tools to the marble quarry. Successfully carrying out a delivery is awarded with a victory point and gold. Unfortunately, some scattered barbarians interrupt the smooth flow of the transport.

all around, 5 stars. (however, the packaging inside for holding the contents of the game is subpar at best. This pertains to ALL Catan expansions/extensions. That's one thing I wish they would have thought out before hand. One piece of blow molded plastic attempting to hold the contents just doesn't suffice. If the box turns on it's side of upside down, the pieces go everywhere. It's a good thing I made my own box with dividers and storage containers to combat this issue. Other than that. Great product!
