Aloha! Prepare to embark on a Hawaiian fishing excursion.
CATAN – Hawai’i is a scenario for CATAN – Seafarers that takes all the fun of the most popular CATAN expansion and sets it in a beautiful tropical locale.
CATAN – Hawai’i requires some material and rules from the CATAN base game and Seafarers expansion. If played with 5 or 6 players, it also requires the 5-6 player extensions for CATAN and the Seafarers expansion.
The new folio retail package includes a game play mat, 25 fish tokens, six fishing boats, and six fish market tiles. the fish conversion rules cards and the victory point markers for the number of fish ground areas occupied (in six colors), and a rules sheet (also available as pdf).
Each player starts with three settlements with one road or ship each, on at least two islands, and sets out to settle the islands to be the first to gather victory points – 15 in a 3-player game, 13 in a 4-player game, 11 in a 5-player game and 10 in a 6-player game. (The latter two cases require the 5-6 player extensions of both basic CATAN and CATAN – Seafarers.)
