YMMV: Settlers of Catan

  • Game Breaker: The Aqueduct in the Cities & Knights expansion allows players to have production even when their resource numbers aren't rolled. Players who get this early usually have a huge advantage.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Or in this case, Americans love Catan.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Wood for Sheep".
  • Scrub: Since settlements must be at least two vertices apart, placing a settlement an odd number of vertices away from another will reduce the number of legal build-spots for everyone, sometimes sharply. Sometimes Scrubs arise who insist that this shouldn't be legal, and everyone should be required to place settlements for maximum density.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In the early editions of the board game, the thief token was black.
