How They’ve Simplified Things:
Through simplified game play, Simply Catan has faster playing time to fit into the hectic schedule of the modern family. Take a look at how they’ve done that below:
- Easier Setup – For a quick setup, Simply Catan comes with 5 rows of tiles, printed on both sides (1×5, 2×4, 2×3). This design reduces overall setup time of the game while still providing enough variation to make for a different game each time you play. For beginners, the rules provide recommended starting positions. This allows new players to dive immediately into the fun of the game mechanics, without spending a lot of time worrying about getting started.
- Faster & Simpler Game Play – Playing to 7 Victory Points speeds up the time to play. With Simply Catan, 30-40 minutes is all your family needs to get your “Catan fix”.
- Room to Grow – All it takes is “just one time” of playing… and you’re hooked! We know that our customers will want to grow with their Simply Catan. That’s why the game comes complete with rules for “advanced” play, and includes the necessary components (such as development cards, Largest Army cards) to enhance and expand the Simply Catan experience… when the time is right.
- Bright & Beautiful & Lasting – With bright and beautiful original artwork, the look of Simply Catan is inviting and classy. And, packaged in a linen-finished box with cards that are thick and sturdy, it is designed for lasting durability.
