Adjust number of roads/settlements/cities
Currently, games are fixed at 15 roads, 5 settlements, and 4 cities. This limits flexibility possibly for players who want to experiment out of the norm.
If dropdown menu existed as they do for VPs and Card Discard Limit, it would increase options, likely with limited engineering effort.
Under consideration expansion game options idea Suggested by: PPP • Upvoted: 16 Mar • Comments: 8
For private games you should be allowed to set the number of road/city/settlement pieces. This would make the larger and fun maps more interesting.
In fun maps, especially big ones like the US Map varient, there are not enough pieces for a 4 player game. can we please maybe either have the option to select more, or just have more than only 14 reads and the other amounts.
Have the option to play with double the pieces, 10 settlements, 8 cities, 30 roads so a 1v1 can take place over a larger scale. Also increase VP cap to 40 to go along with this.
Playing the recent fun map, earth, with just 3 players showed me this would be a great addition. To let less players really fill up the map, for larger ones, and for multi-catan.
