R & I were discussing the recent Wall Street Journal article about the Green Bay Packers playing Settlers of Cataan, and Tadpole announced that she wanted to play, so we played (a variant) this weekend.
I think she enjoyed it.
We roll dice & collect any resources on the board for that number. (So she's working on some counting and matching skills!) Then we place a road. We're trying to make roads for the guy to go on. Trading resources is mostly ignored. "Settlers of Cataan is about collecting sheep!" Tadpole informs us triumphantly.
She even came up with a dice cup!
