PlayCatan – Catan Board Game – Seafarers

General:

In principle, the rules of the Catan Base Game apply. There are additional rules for the use of ships, and there is also the rule for the pirate.

Building Costs:

Building a ship costs one lumber and one wool.

Placing Rule:

A ship can only be placed on a border between two sea hexes or a sea hex and a terrain hex (coast). Furthermore, a ship must always be placed next to a ship of the same color or a settlement/city of the same color. You are allowed to place a ship next to a road only if there is a settlement/city in between.

Open and Closed Ship Routes:

If several ships are lined up one after another, they are forming a ship route. A ship route that connects two of your own cities/settlements is a “closed ship route,” otherwise it is an “open ship route.”

Moving Ships:

Unlike roads, ships can be moved according to the following rules:

  • You can only move one ship per turn.

  • You can move only the first ship of an open ship route.

  • You cannot move a ship belonging to a closed ship route.

  • You cannot move a ship you acquired during the same turn.

  • When moving a ship to a different spot, you must observe the placing rule.

Pirate

If you roll a “7,” you can move either the robber or the pirate. If you opt for the pirate, you can place him on any sea hex. Now you can steal a resource from a game partner who owns a ship adjacent to this sea hex.

Further rules: Ships bordering on a pirate hex cannot be moved. Likewise, no new ships can be placed on the edges of the pirate hex.
