Information regarding the 8th game period
Wednesday, 03 April 2013 09:51

On Tuesday, April 9 at 12 noon CET the titles and achievements of the current game period are calculated and awarded. At that point, the current game period ends, and the 8th game period starts the day after. Here is some important information regarding this matter.


On Wednesday, April 10 the 8th game period begins upon server restart at 10 a.m. CET. This is when the buildings of the cities and the personal possessions of the citizens are reset as specified in the PlayCatan Instructions, and the competition for the titles of the 8th game period starts. As already announced this is the last game period planned. More informations about the background of these changes can be read here.

Actions taken in the period between the awarding of titles and the start of the 8th game period have no effect on the new game period, with one exception: the house and clothing levels bought during this period. These acquisitions do not affect the citizen value, but a player who, for example, buys level 4 starts the 8th game period with level 2 instead of level 1.

At the beginning of the new game period, every player receives 3 starting resources. In addition, the weekly bonus resource count starts again, meaning that you can receive bonus resources for games played and games won. The Monthly Lists are continued as usual.

Further information on this topic can be found in the PlayCatan Instructions.

Please also note:

1) Level 1 houses are removed. Therefore, if you want to keep your building site in the next game period, you should previously upgrade to level 2.

2) The "Active Citizen" status is transferred to the next game period. If you are an "Active Citizen" at the end of the 6th game period, you will also have this status at the beginning of the 8th game period.

3) The "City Council Member" status is not transferred to the next game period. The "Active Donations" are reset to zero.
