Catan: Explorers and Pirates Expansion includes 5 novel scenarios, each of which builds upon your previous experience. All are easy to learn, rich in character, and lots of fun. In each, you explore an unknown sea by ship and build settlements on the discovered islands.
Scenario 1 ("Land Ho!") introduces you to valuable harbor settlements, shipbuilding, exploration, and overseas settlement - the most important basic rules of this expansion. Each subsequent scenario introduces a new mission and its simple new rules. The game culminates in Scenario 5 ("Explorers and Pirates"), which incorporates all of these very rich new themes in a diverse and exciting campaign of bold exploration and piracy!
