Cities and Knights?
Playing Civ yesterday it struck me that Settlers of Catan is sort of a simplified version of Civilization. I have Settlers and the 5-6 player expansion, but I haven't played in several years.
Viewed as version of Civ-lite, Settlers is pretty basic, but still fun. Playing Civilization yesterday was so great, it got me thinking about it more. In particular, I've been thinking about the Cities and Knights expansions. Does anyone have a copy of Cities and Knights?
The reviews all agree that it adds a lot of extra options and depth in addition to longer play time. While there's still no direct combat per se, there's lots of ways to attack each other. There are more things to build, more versions of interaction, and more resources to acquire. Even the longer play time is short compared with Civ. In short, the game is a richer version of Civ-lite.
Does anyone in the group own C&K? I'd love to give it a try.
