What reviewers liked

Allows for 3 to 4 players. Games usually take 1-2 hours of playing time. Board recently redesigned with new artwork. Extremely interactive game that requires cooperation from other players.
Catan is known for popularizing Eurogames, which require more strategy than luck. Catan is strategic, interactive, and fun to play. It was one of the first challenging board games that Wirecutter writer Anna Perling tried years ago, and she still gets together with friends every few months to play it.
This addictive game pits players against each other in a race to build the biggest settlement. A creative combination of luck, strategy, and design make Catan a winner.

What reviewers didn't like

On the pricier end when it comes to board games. Board can fray and bend without proper care.
The only drawback is that sometimes you end up in a game where you have no chance of winning, and that can be less than fun.
