    It’s the social aspect of Catan that makes it the great game it is, and thus more appealing to the crowd. BTW, great blog and great article!

    So true about Settlers. A bit of advice when you want to grow out of Settlers: Don’t start adopting a bunch of Settler sequels next. Move on to the following games: Puerto Rico, Agricola, and Dominion.
