This game, The Settlers of Catan, has a board made up of unusual hexagonal tiles, which can be rearranged each time players start a new game.
Players compete for natural resources, such as lumber, wool, brick or grain, and deal with accidents and incidents. Raiding the resources of other players and building roads, cities and settlements let a player accumulate points.
While the game involves strategy and planning, the players also create a storyline as they play. The Settlers of Catan won major game awards from 1995 to 2015.
