This is the second game in the 'Abenteuer Catan' (Catan Adventures) series that started with Candamir: The First Settlers. The theme of Elasund is based on the 'Die Siedler von Catan' novel written by Rebecca Gablé, itself based on the original The Settlers of Catan game. In Elasund, players compete and cooperate to build the premier city of Catan.
Gather 2-4 players and build Elasund, the first city on the island of Catan. This may sound like a peaceful endeavor - but it isn't. In a city that seems to have far too little space, soon a fierce struggle ensues: everyone wants to snatch the best building sites, build the buildings that generate the most income, and secure as many victory points as possible.
