Today you can get one of the best board games of this century on sale.

Settlers of Catan is down to $40 on Amazon for a limited time. The strategy game usually sells for right around $50, so this deal saves you 17 percent. For one of the costlier best-selling games, a $10 markdown is not too shabby.


If you aren’t already familiar with the game, Settlers of Catan is a strategy board game which requires players to build the richest development using four resources: grain, wool, ore, brick, and lumber. 

Resource combinations buy handy development cards and build roads, settlements, and cities. But gaining these resources may not be easy. Players have to cleverly trade precious resources with each other in order to strengthen their own development, so now not only are you playing the game, but your friends as well. 


Settlers of Catan is great for dreary rainy days trapped in dorm rooms, family game night, and even for those who enjoy a beer or two while they play a game. So if you don’t already own a copy, get one while it’s at one of the lowest prices yet.  Buy it here.
