What is Catan Cities & Knights about?

This expansion adds several new features to Catan, but the two most notable ones are knights to protect the land from invading barbarians, and city improvements that benefit the city’s owner. This increases the complexity of the game and the length of the game.

The game changes the base game in three main ways:

The game introduces three new commodities: paper, cloth, and coins, which can be acquired from Forest, Meadow, and Mountain spaces, respectively. Instead of producing two of one of those resources, cities produce one resource and one commodity.

The deck of development cards is replaced by three different decks, each representing a commodity. With every roll of the dice, players get a chance to draw these cards. Improvements will increase these chances, but cards can’t be bought directly. Basically, they’re development cards, but with a broader range of effects.

In addition, players can build knights along their roads on the island. Knights can be used to defend the island from barbarian attacks and claim certain intersections (instead of Soldier cards). If the island is successfully defended, the player(s) with the most knights are rewarded. If not, the player(s) with the fewest knights each have a city downgraded to a settlement.
