DescriptionSternenschiff Catan: Das Strategische Weltraumabenteuer is a game based on the card game of the same name which is known as Starship Catan in English. It is part of the highly popular Settlers of Catan series of board and card games.
In the game you play against one other online player or computer opponent. The colonists of Catan have travelled into space and have been sucked into a black hole. When they start to run out of resources they have no other choice but to colonize planets to mine resources. Resources are required for upgrades of your starship, such as a bigger cargo hold, a better engine and a canon to ward of pirates. The goal of the game is to be the first to obtain 10 victory points. These are acquired by putting up trade posts and colonies and gaining friendship points and medals.
The game is played completely with the mouse. Each round of play has three phases: production phase, flying phase and the trade and build phase. Each colony has a number assigned to it. In the first you roll dice to determine which colonies produce resources (such as ore, food and fuel). In the flying face you can turn over cards from the main deck. Your speed determines the amount of cards you receive. The received cards determine further actions you may do such as trading, founding posts and colonies, and fulfilling special quests for the galactic council. In the third and final phase you may expand your ship and build colonies and trade ships. After the the third phase it's your opponents turn to play.
