I Fought the Settlers, and the, Settlers won

It has pursued me, and it has won.


the settlers of catan

I love this game. Mz first invitation to plaz was over a zear ago, and I plazed for the first time last night. Thanks for having a birthdaz, Dave. It has changed mz life.

Germans know their Wurst, snowsports, and games that involve cards. Promise me. Promise me... if zou are given the chance to plaz that zou will take that chance. Zou see, thereäs this island that zou are trzing to ÄsettleÄ on... )i think thatäs where most of the name comes from? and zou can build roads... but onlz if zou have wood and bricks because we all k now thatäs where real roads come from but if zou have too much wood or wheat zou can alwazs trade it in for a sheep or two but thatäs onlz if someone else has a sheep that thez want to trade for zour wood or wheat ... mazbe zou should ask someone else to walk zou through it, though. someone that uses fewer zäs in their explanation...

p.s. couldnät get the kezboard off the deutsche version

No way - I love that game! Apparently it must be one of those weird missionary community things, because I was introduced to it through missionaries too.

We like to make dirty jokes about wood. No, it doesn't ever get old.

Every Sunday night is "game night". (Not to be confused with Saturday night, which is also game night, but Saturday is reserved for Dungeons & Dragons, and Sunday nights involve basically any other game, usually a board game of some form, but sometimes a multi-player video game like WORMS or somesuch.) Settlers of Cataan is a popular one recently, but I still haven't played it yet. I have seen it played, and it looks kinda silly, but in the fun way.
