Settlers of Katan is by far the most toxic game I've played.
Much much more toxic than monopoly. At least in monopoly, when you're winning you feel good. In Katan even if you're winning you still feel dirty, all those times I stole longest road or largest army, or all those times I double tapped a guy to keep him down by rolling a 7 then popping a knight. Jesus Christ that game brings out the worst in me.
And Fvck all those king makers too, we all have that one friend that starts purposefully throwing the game when he's losing "Hey want two rocks for one rock?"
@Mhael, precisely why I don’t play this game anymore. Ticket to Ride did occasionally get contentious with my friends, but Settlers ALWAYS ended in conflict.
@Mhael, The amount of times my siblings and i have almost been in full blown fights because of catan is too damn high
@Mhael, The closest my family comes to blows over Catan is when my youngest brother doesn’t pay attention the whole game and still wins
@Michael Jay Caboose, All the times I've played it, it's gone well. I mean, everyone was drinking, but that's besides the point.
@Mhael, ive only EVER had very had fun and extremely friendly games with my friends. We all want to win but when we lose it’s NBD
@Mhael, as an avid catan player, I definitely hate it when people throw the game. But trading different quantities of the same resource is outlawed in the rule book to prevent that exactly
@Reezy F Baby, yeah but there are so many loop holes that it doesn't matter if it's outlawed or not. For example, you can do multiple trades of two different resources to achieve the same result as two X for one X.
@Mhael, haha that’s why I love catan! It’s so fun!
@Mhael, that just means you and your friends are assholes beyond normal. It's by far one of my favorite games to play with my friends. We always use English accents for no reason, even though it's definitely not accurate.
Yaaaay Wales getting some recognition! We have a motherfvcking dragon on our flag!
Anyone recommend any good board games? Love monopoly and have played most of its variants. Played Catan and Ticket to ride, but looking for something else
@Tyrellious, Have you played Stratego?
