Catan 2 Player Variant

My partner and I love to play boardgames, and especially Catan, but for many years, there were only two of us in the household, and Catan — by its standard rules — is not well-suited to only two players. Through trial and error and experimentation with many different adjustments and variations, we came up with a really solid set of Catan 2 player rules. We’ve played this variant scores of times and it has proven to be a fair and fun gametype.
