I played Settlers of Catan for the first time a couple nights ago. There were four of us. I’m not going to get into the details, but let’s just say it was an acrimonious affair. I went from dealing with a goat-hoarding nephew with Catan Junior to wondering if I would cut the hypothetical rope holding up the chandelier my friends and company were metaphorically hanging from. I can understand why it would be important to double-cross me as a way to stoke interest in a game for a bunch of kids, but this? Man, why’s a person even got to do a thing?
