Style: Collaboration, Resource Management, Development
Time: 20 mins - 45 mins
Players: 10 - 40
The game is set in New England in 1700. Players start as new immigrants arriving with fellow teammates on ships into the new world. Starting with just a basic skill, players have to buy resources, learn new skills and work together to build the towns and earn money.
Settlement is a semi-collaborative game, players are playing individually but it is not possible to succeed without working with other players and combining different skills and resources.
Settlement creates a simple development environment. There are multiple strategies a player can take to advance, but ultimately it is how well you work with your fellow players that will be the driver of success.
