The Manufacturer's Card Game Review of The Settlers of Catan Card Game Expansion:
Now you can expand your principality in new directions! The five expansion sets within each feature a different theme to enhance the flavor of your Settlers Card Game experience:
Trade & Change: Commerce and exchange dominate this theme! Why hire knights when your workshops provide all the resources you desire? Run out of what you need? A quick visit to the Pawnbroker will settle that!
Politics & Intrigue: In this theme your secret plans bear fruit! Can you seize control through diplomatic channels? Or should you ally with the Church and excommunicate your foe? Don’t worry about his army, a few coins and his knights will be yours!
Knights & Merchants: Conflict and trade wars are the focus of this theme! Trade fleets battle heartless pirates, while toll stations and watchtowers guard the border. Will victory be gained by the sword? Or will the wealth of Spice Caravans flood your coffers?
Science & Progress: Technology and invention are the keys to the future! Will you embrace the future, building a University to train your brightest? Will amazing inventions guide you to victory? The thunderous roar of the cannon signals the end of the age of knights!
