Very good game, you will need to practice saying I have wood, I would like sheep with a straight face.

tis a great game, best tip is really think about the placement of your first town. aim to sit on 3 different resources.

Great game. The ladies love it too, as it involves manipulation through trade. Its like a good version of monopoly. The basic set is great. Exapansions are only recommended for die -hard fans who want REALLY long games.

We play without the thief sometimes. Quite fun.

Wuss. Screwing your mates over by putting the thief on their best resource is the best bit! :D
