Settlers of Catan is like the Monopoly of the new gaming world. Well, maybe that’s not quite a fair comparison, though it does seem to be a staple in many gamer’s homes.
What really makes a gaming experience can be the players. Have you ever had that one friend who makes everyone laugh? Making clever remarks about some of the game pieces/cards, teasing others, or complaining about how they’re going to “die” in the game? There are times when I’m grateful that someone isn’t taking the game too seriously.
On the other hand, have you ever played a strategic game with friends only to have one person taking their time each time? Of course you have. Whether it be another adult or a child, it can be frustrating. I know I’ve had to learn patience from it. Heck, I’m not perfect and I know others have had to exercise patience with me.
Here’s a solution when playing Settlers of Catan. Be passive aggressive by handing that person this card. Warning: friends with a sense of humour needed.
The image isn’t mine and can be found all over the internet so I’m not sure who to give credit to, but I love it and thought to share. Simply print it out using the same measurements as the Large Army and Longest Road cards, attach it to the back of some cardboard (I used two layers of cereal box cardboard) and have fun with it!
In an effort not to waste paper, I printed four on a page and made some for my friend’s copies of Settlers.
