A good friend introduced B and I to Settlers of Catan a number of years ago, and we were hooked immediately. Since receiving the original game as a wedding present, we've added the extension pack, and as of last week, Cities and Knights of Catan (which attaches to the original). There's two other major additional games to attach that we'd like to get, Seafarers of Catan and Traders and Barbarians. So many hours of fun. I highly recommend the game, if you're looking for a new and different board game--it's a farrrr cry from the standard Monopoly-style game.
