Twenty years ago, the settlers started into the depths of the galaxy to discover unknown planets, the undiscovered universe lying before them. Maybe they’ll find planets with good ore or carbon deposits — or perhaps only barren ice planets. They might encounter alien folks and start lucrative trading, with pirates and wormholes being a constant challenge for them.
Catan: Starfarers is a new version of Starfarers of Catan, originally released in 1999, that contains completely revised graphics and game materials, revised rules, and (most importantly) a variable game board that brings even more variety to the exploration of space.

We love this game. Simple to play, but play is variable enough to have quite a few new experiences. Its a big box, so clear some space!
3-4, best 3 Hex grid, dice rolling, income, race, trading, random production ---Differs from Settlers: no route/road building; spaceship travel instead. More catch-up systems in place for those behind.
Nice mix between a lighter game and something that offers more strategic options than base Catan. Many encounter cards feel similar, modular setup is a huge plus.
