Product information "Die Siedler von Catan - Aufbruch der Händler"
Real Catan, but quite different. Every player represents a trader and starts with 3 trading posts. Income is determined, as usual, from the landscapes next to your trading post. To get another trading posts you need to recruit a new merchant. Then release him (for a small fee, of course) to go out and look for a suitable place to establish a new post (where the merchant will settle down). With each new post you acquire another load of merchandise. To unload the goods in foreign trading posts, you need a merchant wagons. To simply "dump" your goods doesn't work: you have to steer your wagons on trade routes. Travelling on a separate trade route will cost no gold. But if they must use a foreign tradet route, they will have to pay. Because every post can only hold one load of merchandise, you must hurry. Delivery to your own posts is taboo. Once you have delivered all your goods and placed all your trading posts, you win. And a great job done!
