Never lose to your friends in the popular Settlers of Catan board game ever again! This class is designed for students who have already played a few games and understand the rules. Each week we will discuss how to get better in different aspects of the game, from settlement placement to expansion to trading to development cards to robber placement!

25% Participation/Attendance (allowed one excused absence)

45% Quizzes / Exams
The first 20 minutes of class will be dedicated to covering a specific Catan topic each week. This will take place in an interactive lecture format. Students will be free to interrupt and ask questions.
There will then be a 5 minute class discussion to consider alternative strategies. In Catan, there is no one right / perfect move. It is a subjective game, so it is important that we discuss different viewpoints and thoughts.
The remaining 85 minutes will be used for the students to play a Catan game against their peers.
