Best expansion to regular catan game. Easy to understand. Easy to learn.
The only downside is that it lacks strategy but you may alter some of the rules to make it more challenging and teach kids strategizing and planning skills. My grandson is 5 and caught on after the first game. My 6 year old enjoys it.
There are so many great family games that don't cause people to flip the table that this game should stop being made. There are only twelve markers for sixteen properties, making monopoly impossible. The math is so minimal that it's insulting.
