A Taste of Big Catan
Play it at UKGE
Catan is usually played as a 4 player game. However there is a BIg Game version.In the Big Game, any number of players play together on a long game map specially developed for this scenario. Each round, the moderator's dice roll determines the resource income for all players, after which the players trade and build until one player has reached 25 victory points. Catan – The Big Game thus provides a unique experience in a great atmosphere.
Around the world there have been events of upto 1000 players. We do not plan a game on that scale at UKGE 2016 but we have always fancied running one and in 2017 or 2018 we might run a Big Catan.
To give vistors to UK Games Expo a taste of how Big Catan works Robert Carty of Catan Studios will be running games of up to 12 players at Stand E5 in our Trade Hall (Hall One NEC) on Saturday 4th June and Sunday 5th June at 11.00 and 13.00 each day. Each game will last 2 hours. There is no charge but it is first come, first served.
