  1. …. i literally typed is kadis-kot and this is what came up.

  2. I came looking for the distance rule, not here 👎

  3. Who else found out about Catan from Dr. Jordan B. Peterson?

  4. Can you explain the distance rule better?

  5. Who’s here from Tiktok after watching that guy who redesigns posters for free?

  6. This tutorial has got me more confused than I was before watching it

  7. Several years ago my sister and brother-in-law introduced me to this game, and I've been hooked ever since. ❤

  8. Two unskippable ads. F**k your video. 👍🏻

  9. Unclaimed Longest Road Question! 🤔🤔🤔🤔

    Scenario: Player A builds a 5th road but no one realizes that they should be awarded the longest road. Player B, with 8 points, builds their 5th road, claims the unclaimed longest road card, and announces they’ve won the game. Then, out of surprise that 5 roads would be the longest, players evaluate and see that player A should have the 2 points instead.

    Setting aside your incredulity that anyone could not have realized on player A’s turn, or otherwise did not announce it, what would be the ruling here?

    Do the rules state that the points are immediately given to player A whether anyone realizes it or not?

  10. Very helpful video, also many great comments with the technicalities within the game. It's a pretty overwhelming game at first!

  11. The 7 roll rule is you lose half your resourse cards if you have more than 7, not 7 OR above

  12. Best explanation, but I got 1 question sir? When we use the reasource card or the development card, does it go back to the supplies or does it get discarded? Please someone clear this doubt of mine.

  13. So wait. 1:00 the number tokens are always in the same order then based on the letters on the back? But the tiles are random?

  14. Needs clarity on where settlements can be placed and the rules of placement.

  15. *BE CAREFUL*
    Great video but PLEASE read the paper instructions in their entirety. I don't know if this is just an old video and the new sets of Catan have been updated but this video omits a LOT of information. We didn't know until we played with a more seasoned player and were told that we're playing CRITICAL aspects of the game completely wrong. No hate, just want people to avoid the same mistakes we made.

  16. You are a life saver the intrusions didn’t do shit

  17. As a person who has never played this before…wtf is this game 😭😭

  18. Not going to lie, this isn't a great explanation video. Jumping straight to the point and not much elaboration on rules.

  19. I’ve been interested in this game, but it seems so confusing

  20. I have a second hand set that seems to have everything but the harbor tokens which were mentioned after explaining everything without explaining their purpose. Do I need them or not? What are they for?

  21. I was taught how to play this game high off an edible. Struggled at first but got it

  22. Great explanation, it's was concise and clearly explained

  23. Oh god this is sooo helpful!! you're definitely a life saver🥲✨ I wasn't able to understand how to play this game even after reading the rules out, thankfully I watched your video😁 Tysm!!💜

  24. After watching this video, I played this with my sister and brother in law. I almost won even though it was my first try, but I was collecting the knight card because I thought I have to collect the 3 knights first then give them away to get the point card. Later when I put all 3 cards down, I realised that I had to play them 3 times, not collect them. And then my sister won. But it was really a fun experience. And I used alot of beginner's luck.

  25. As I was truly enjoying your lesson I noticed something, the pieces had moved. They were in different spots. I had been hoping to see a continuous game. But thank you for clarifying second placement.

  26. The mention of distance spacing for settlement? Wtf

  27. When the robber is activated you only lose cards if you have more than 7 cards, so actually 8 or more.

  28. Thanks I just got the game for christmas and this was super helpful

  29. thank u this means alot u made my day ty

  30. This was a good supplement to the rulebook which helped speed up my learning. Got it for Christmas and the rulebook was simple enough, but I wanted to confirm with a video, which this has done. Many thanks!

  31. Always wanted to plays this game. Way too complicated!!!

  32. Can’t seem to find a definitive answer. I understand that when someone initially steals the longest road they get those two points plus an additional two for victory points.

    What happens when someone steals the longest road from the second person that originally stole it? Does the second person keep their two victory points or do they lose all four?

  33. I feel like this tutorial was made for people who already know how to play. 😅 I didn't understand anything

  34. Love this game! We just started playing this about 3-4 months ago. It's SOOOOO Much fun!!! I didn't know about a city breaking a road path and cancelling the longest road. That's interesting. I'll have to remember that next time we play it.

  35. আরে ভাই বাংলা ভাষায় ভিডিও নাই নাকি

  36. Very clear cut tute I’ve seen yet. I’m playing and learning from two experienced friends tomorrow. 🙏🙏🙏

  37. Dude reading fast from his note book. 👎

  38. great tutorial. by the way I think the robber has no effect on cards less than 8. Rule say "if you have more than 7 cards" and even specifies it means equals 8 or more.
    However if you get robbed when you have 7, it will make the game level harder and requires even more stronger hand and risk management.

  39. sent this to my friend who said he wants to play with me =)
