Seafarers (expansion for settlers) by Dakanzla Mar 5, 2016


This thing contains all parts (exept cards, etc.) for the expansion "seafarers" for the settler basic game I already made (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1238980).

for the roules check out here: http://www.catan.com/service/game-rules or here: https://kelvsyc.wordpress.com/catan-scenario-and-variant-guide/

Choose yourself which individual tile-designs you prefere for the game. If you want, you can also use other tiles from the main game. These are the pieces you need to print:

  • Tiles (landscapes): 2 x landscapes gold, 2 x landscapes desert, 1 x landscape wheat, 1 x landscape wood, 2 x landscapes ore, 2 x landscapes brick, 1 x landscape wool, 34 x sea (as much with islands as you like)
  • 50 x catan chits
  • 60 x ships (15 per player)
  • 1 x pirate ship (corsaire)
  • 4 x cloth tokens (8/11, 9/10, 4/5, 6/3, scenario "cloth for catan")
  • 1 x dice (scenario "the fog islands")
  • 36 x warship-marker (scenario "pirate island")
  • 8 x settlements forgotten clan (scenario "cloth for catan")

If you don't want to use magnets, I have made some interlocking parts for the landscapes here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2035221

Like for the other expansions I had to do slight changes to the gameplay and material because of the 3d-design of the tiles.

The changes are the followings:

  • The catan chits (chips) can be stacked and placed under settlements
  • For the scenario "the fog islands" the dice can be used to decide which landscape is going to be placed. The dice shows the following symbols: sheep = wool, tree = wood, grain = wheat, dead fish = desert, blocks = brick, mountain = ore, waves = sea, crown = gold.
  • For the scenario "cloth for catan" the cloth-tokens are placed on the 4 islands where the number tokens belong. They show two numbers (one points up one down) for the two settlements of the forgotten tribe (new), that are placed where in the original roules the number tokens are placed. For example: on the cloth-token the number 6 shows upward. If the number 6 is rolled, the settlement atop of the cloth-token gives one bolt of cloth (one catan chit).
  • For the scenario "the pirate island" you don't have to turn your ships aside to mark them as warships. You can use the warship-markers, that are placed under the ships.

Printed out a bunch of tiles and tried 2 of them with magnets but the magnets dont work. Seems the 3mm are too small? is there anything I can do to make this work?

This has to do with printersettings. There is a testpiece in the files to find the right settings. Often cheap magnets dont have the right size. If nothing works, it would be an option to use self gluing foil to cover the buttom.

I think i may be blind. Im in the middle of printing this set, and am looking for the water pieces that have the docks inset in them (for the tokens) I see them in the picture, but dont see them listed in the files. (only the basic water pieces and 4 variations of islands) Any chance you lend me a hand? :)

If you mean the water tiles for the harbor tokens, you find them here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1238980 :)

settlers catan style (magnetic)

Is there a link to the sides of the board w magnet bases?

The pieces that surround the board, the outside tiles.

Havent made any of those because the pieces are magnetic and are hold together. I just now this one here which is not magnetic: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2100711 Maybe you find some others on thingiverse.

Catan Border with Snaps for Magnetic Version

Ah but the outside pieces are needed if you sail or end up in on the border. Could you make some magnetic ones please :D

From my point of view they are just estetic and not really needed. It doesent make sense to me to create a game that sticks togehter with magnets and is then surrounded by a boarder :) beside i didnt find any rools concerning the boarders. The ships are not allowed to move at the edge of a landscape and they probably would fall down. That corresponds to the same result as playing with borders. Heres a solution for you: https://www.buildxyz.xyz/3d-catan-better-settlers-build-guide/

If you have a water tile or land tile touching the border you can have a ship / road and even settlement on that edge (im not talking about the very outsides of the game board but one side of the border is used. Would be nice to have the whole game board as magnets yes of course! anyways lmk Im printing up everything now and looking for some magnetic boarders :D

Sorry but I don't understand :-) What are you looking for?Check the description to find other related game parts

What colour filament do you use for your water?

Transparent blue from innofil

Already half way there with the extra land tiles and a couple spare water tiles :)

You made it possible, thx :-)
