* PlungerDetonator: In the XboxLiveArcade version, one of the [[EmoteAnimation emote animations]] shows a player using one of these to blow up the dice. The AI sometimes uses it when it has a run of particularly bad rolls.

''Settlers of Catan'' (a.k.a. ''Die Siedler von Catan'') is a multi-award-winning board game by Klaus Teuber. The competing players are settlers attempting to colonise the island of Catan, and must collect and trade resources to build roads, settlements and developments. As they do so they accumulate Victory Points, with additional points being awarded for achievements such as building the longest road or having the largest army. The first player to reach a certain number of Victory Points (usually ten) wins the game.

* AntiHoarding: You can hold as many resource cards as you want in your hand, but if anyone at the table rolls a 7 (which is the single most likely roll on a 2d6) when you have more than 7 cards, you have to discard a full ''half'' of them. This encourages the players to spend their resources on buildings quickly, or to trade them for others they need. The ''Cities & Knights'' expansion allows building ramparts around up to three cities, each adding 2 cards to the maximum. Given the greater number of different resources in this game, building at least one is indispensable.

* GangUpOnTheHuman: Very badly in the first computer game, to the point that all of your opponents will sometimes simultaneously refuse to trade with you when you haven't even had time to make an offer.

* GangUpOnTheHuman: Very badly in the first computer game, to the point that all of your opponents will sometimes simultaneously refuse to trade with you when you haven't even had time to make an offer. It's also not uncommon for them to refuse to trade when doing so would clearly be in their best interest, and would even benefit them more than you.
