The Manufacturer's Board Game Review of The Settlers of Catan: 5-6 Player Expansion:
Expand your Settlers Games to include more players and more scenarios. More Tiles, more resource cards, more development cards, and components (settlements, villages, roads), for two additional players.
Rainy Day Game's Board Game Review of The Settlers of Catan: 5-6 Player Expansion:
Perhaps one flaw you could find with the original Settlers of Catan is that is had a maximum of 4 players. The game of course plays extremely well with that number, but board game groups can grow larger than 4 people easily. We were forced to buy the Settlers of Catan 5-6 Player Expansion for those times when the girlfriends want to join in, or one of our buddies is in from out of town.
The 5-6 Player Expansion Set will give you more of the same Settlers fun for more people without changing the basic game much. The main rule change is that players can build on any turn, speeding up the board game and involving the players more when it's not their turn.
For anyone who wants to bring the fun and challenge of the Settlers of Catan board game to a larger group, The 5-6 Player Expansion set is a mandatory part of your games closet.
