The Catan: Explorers & Pirates 5-6 Player Extension delivers what it says on the tin! Considering there’s elements of pick-up-and-deliver in this addition to the Catan universe, that’s appropriate!
This is an extension to a previous expansion for Catan, Explorers & Pirates. When it was first released, Catan: Explorers & Pirates was for 2-4 players only. But not any more! Thanks to this extension, you can now invite a fifth or sixth player to join the yo-ho pirate’s life for thee!
Explorers & Pirates introduced a whole array of features that drive Catan in a whole different direction. (Or should that be ‘sail’?) Five different Scenarios, to be precise, as well as three smaller missions! The best thing is you can mix and match these to suit your tastes. They work as brilliant alternatives as individual scenarios. But, if yo want an epic, sprawling game, you can throw everything into the mixing bowl. With everything on the table, the game opens up with a multitude of different strategies. And thanks to this 5-6 Player Extension, now nobody has to miss out on games night.
This 5-6 Player Extension provides all the items needed to allow a fifth and sixth player to join in. It comes with green and brown player pieces. (These match the player colours for the other Catan expansions, too.) There’s more harbour settlements, more crew members, settlers, and ships. Also included are more fish and spice to accommodate for player scaling. More sea and terrain hexes (including extra pirate lairs). More game pieces, more fun, more Catan!
Please note that Catan: Explorers & Pirates 5-6 Player Extension is an add-on pack. It expands the gameplay for Catan. It is not a standalone product. To play this extension (as you might have guessed) you’ll need to combine it with other Catan games. This cannot play without the base game of Catan itself. You’ll also need the Catan: 5-6 Player Extension, and Catan: Explorers & Pirates.
