A Catan Expansion
Dark clouds are
the peaceful island of Catan. Wild barbarians,
attracted by the wealth of Catan, set sail to attack
the country. Fortunately, warning has given Catan
time to meet the danger. Players compete to build
the three great metropolises of Catan. Each of
these magnificent centers are worth two additional
victory points. To build a metropolis, players must
invest in city improvements. To acquire these
improvements, players must acquire the three new
types of commodity cards: coinage, paper, and
cloth. These cards can only be gained by building
a city next to mountain, forest, or pasture hexes.
Be prepared for new challenges and a longer game!
The first player to reach 13 victory points will be
the winner in Catan: Cities & Knights!
