I had always wanted to play this classic strategy boardgame, and my lovely wife knew this and got it for me for my birthday. She even set up a nerdy little guy's night for me, so I got to play it a few times. Since, I've played it a few more times, and I really like it. There's no wonder it's as culturally popular as it is. It may look like RISK from afar, but it plays more like Monopoly. Anybody can get the grasp in just a few rounds, and the strategies are infinite. Everybody had their own, just like Monopoly. The few games I've played so far have all been won differently. Any other Catan fans? Anybody enjoy the various expansions? I can't get a group of 3+ willing players together that often either, so if anybody wants to play on Xbox Live let me know!
