Game Instructions
  • Victory: 10 Victory Points
  • Rules: Standard and as shown below

The North American continent has been Catanized, from sea to shining sea! Happy Columbus Day? Too bad Leif got there first (speaking of, check out our Newfoundland map here!)


Use an 8×9 frame layout. Note that in order to make Central America extend just far enough to feel right, one tile (Panama) rests on top of the frame. Just because it’s the Panama canal, let’s say that roads or ships may be built on the two southeastern-facing pathways.


Start the Pirate and Robber as shown. Starting placements may only be on the mainland. There are no bonus points awarded for settling on a foreign island.
