You wanna game?

If you haven't played Settlers of Catan, you haven't lived.

Settlers is definitely one of the greatest board game of all time; in my opinion it is only surpassed by the eternal classic Chess. Made by Mayfair Games, it is very strategic and, if played by experienced people, is not too dependent on luck. (Although, as in any game, luck always helps.)

I found about 6 months ago a way to play Settlers online. First, you need the Wannagame Messenger, which allows you to find games online. The Settlers program you use is called Wancatan, which you can download here.

It's quite fun to play with people from all over the world (the majority of the online players are from Europe) and try your hand at beating them. If you're interested, you can even join in a league and get a player rating!

So, if you really wanna game, contact me and I'll play you...

I also have just procured a new game, Puerto Rico on recommendation from From what I've read it looks really cool.

On a side note, I've added a ton of new links and blogs to my sidebars, enjoy!
