Settlers of Catan Tournament at Down The Road Beer Co.

Register

We don’t know whether it’s the way the game was built or the joy that comes from announcing to the room that you have wood for sheep, but there's something about Settlers of Catan that makes it still hold up even 3+ decades after it came out (don't wikipedia fact check us, we're right, it's been over 3 decades). So we're hosting a Settlers tournament on May 2nd at Down the Road Brewery in Everett.

We're sure you have some questions, so we're answering them here...

Q: What if I don't know how to play Settlers of Catan?

A: Then you're a philistine. But that's totally cool. We will have an expert rules-ologist on hand to explain how the game works before we get started.

Q: I only play Settlers if it's with my fourteen favorite expansions.

A: Go away.

Q: How does this work?

A: Bracket style tournament. Everyone plays in one of four games, and the winner from each game advances to the finals. Tournament champ gets a (not very expensive) prize, a trophy and immortality in our Hall of Champions (http://www.playboardgameempire.com/hall-of-champions/).

Q: Everett? Isn't that like 800 miles north of the city and you need a sherpa to show you how to get there?

A: Actually it's only ten minutes outside of Boston. You take the orange line to Sullivan Square and then switch to a bus that drops you off about a block from the brewery.

Q: A BUS??! WHAT ARE YOU INSANE??! WHO TAKES A BUS?!

A: Argh, fine, just Uber.

Q: I prefer Lyft.

A: Sure.

Q: So this is definitely happening, right?

A: Only if we get at least five people to sign up, and we're all filled up once we hit 18 players, so grab a spot quick.

Q: QuickLY.

A: Go away.
