Excerpt: 3 of you, one of me, an island, well I make that Pimms o'clock. Catan is the story of a newly discovered island. The only problem is, you have to try and become its ruler. At it's heart, Catan plays a lot like monopoly. You role dice (although you don't move), you build stuff and you trade a bit. Ok, maybe not so much like Monopoly, more like the mobile version of the apparently hugely best selling and original German game Settlers of Catan .
