Catan: Cities and Knights


Flourishing trade brings prosperity to Catan. However, all this wealth also attracts barbarians. The knights of Catan are needed!

Catan: Cities and Knights adds several new aspects to the award winning original game, Catan, the two major ones being creating knights to protect the cities from invading barbarians and city improvements giving additional benefits to that city’s owner.

The Barbarians will target the players with the weakest defence. In order to defend against the barbarians, players compete to build three great metropolises, each with different benefits, including being worth more victory points that either a city or settlement.

Players may complete city improvements, using the additional resources; coin, paper and cloth. Players can improve their city’s culture, muster their knights and enrich the city, all in the effort to gain the most victory points, and ultimately win the game.

This expansion can also be combined with Catan: Seafarers and  Catan: Traders and Barbarians.
