I Coloni di Catan (Settlers of Catan)

It turns out the Italians are as aware of the fantastic options in German board games as we are.

For all of my rabid Settlers friends, Settlers in Rome includes regular Settlers and Seafarer's. They also had the Battaglia Roma. Check out the flames in the upper-right-hand corner of that box!

Play a few games for me, will you? Board games with lots of bits were certainly *not* at the top of the packing priority list, no matter how fantastic Settlers is :)
