However, recently I’ve noticed my overall interest in the game has dropped. I still enjoy it and am willing to play if the group is but it is not my first choice.
Basic Settlers of Catan = 6
Seafarers of Catan = 6
Cities and Knights of Catan = 7
*If adding fish (an element from Traders and Barbarians expansion) add .5 to score
**If there is also Barbarians Attack! (another element option from Traders and Barbarians) and an additional .5 to score
My Favorite Set-Up:
Settlers set up would be five players (so you have build rounds in-between) cities and knights with fishes. Rating 7.5
The Rate the Fun Scale:
10 = Outstandingly Awesome Game; Always want to play it and I expect this will never change.
9 = Excellent Game; Always want to play it.
8 = Very good game; I like to play. Probably I'll suggest it and I'll never turn down a game.
7 = Good game; Usually willing to play.
6 = Okay game; There is some element of fun or challenge; will play sporadically if in the right mood.
5 = Fair game; Slightly boring, take it or leave it.
4 =Not so good; It doesn't get me but I could be talked into it on occasion.
3 = Bad; Likely won't play this again but could be convinced.
2 = Extremely annoying game; Won't play this ever again.
1 = Clearly broken; You won't catch me dead playing this.
