Settlers of Catan is a popular turn-based strategy game for MS-DOS. The game involves rolling dice to gather resource cards from the island, such as sheep, brick, ore, wheat and wood. The object of the game is to be the first player to gain the specified number of victory points during your turn.
by Mayfair Games, Settlers was launched in 1995 by German board-game maker Klaus Teuber. Teuber created 19 hexagonal cardboard tiles that are arranged to form an island.
Those cards are then used to build settlements and cities, which are each equivalent to one or two points. If you somehow manage to gain the appropriate number of points during an opponent’s turn, you must wait until the end of your next turn before you can win the game (assuming no one else manages to win before then).
The number of victory points required to win depends on the scenario being played.
The game constantly displays the number of victory points you currently have, as well as the number that you need to win.
You gain victory points in five ways: building settlements, upgrading settlements to cities, deploying the largest army, building the longest trade route, and gaining victory point cards.
Settlements built in a region where you did not begin with a settlement gain an extra victory point.
