Last Monday, my friends and I arrived at a new hexagonal land peaking above the seas. We each cast our dice and picked plots to grow our own colonies.
The early times were hard. Wheat and sheep were in short supply.
The luckier of us had homesteads near forests and built roads to lands yonder.
Soon, coal became vastly abundant, and settlements quickly developed into cities. Resources were plentiful, trade was booming, and ports bustled with activity.
Alas, all was not well. Robbers were rampant. Each one of us summoned armies to defend our strongholds.
In the end, one the almighty conquer emerged from this land. With his long roads and monopoly on wood, he grew expansions after expansions.
It was a fun game of Settlers of Catan.
