Drunkards of Catan

Settlers of Catan Drinking Game

I wanted a drinking game for Catan that was more than just “drink when you build a road!”.
Something a little more involved and integrated while staying simple.  Too many things to remember bog down the drinking!

  • Build 1 Barrel of Alcohol with 1 Wheat & 1 Wood.
  • Use catan chits or coins to represent each barrel of alcohol.
  • Alcohol can be traded like any other resource.
  • Every 2 barrels of alcohol is 1 VP.


  • At any time, any player may spend an alcohol token (return the token to the bank and take a drink) to take a resource card from the bank.
  • At any time, players may gift barrels of alcohol to other players, giving them an alcohol token and forcing them to drink.


  • On a production roll showing doubles, all players have a festival and drink half of their alcohol.  All players return half (rounded up) of their alcohol tokens to the bank, taking a drink for each one returned.

(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i[‘GoogleAnalyticsObject’]=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,’script’,’//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js’,’ga’); ga(‘create’, ‘UA-57346717-1’, ‘auto’); ga(‘send’, ‘pageview’);

    I'm glad you're still active, I love your work. : )
    If I can suggest another project to work on, I'd love to see mega-catan updated with all the scenarios and other small additions, just to make it a little more needlessly complex.

    I have a fan?! Wow! But yeah, I'm not dead yet!

    I haven't picked up Explorers and Pirates, but it seems like it would be up my alley with just a bunch of small additions that can be added into other games. I do go over my old posts every so often and tweak them a bit. Check over your favorites and I'll usually note when they were updated last.

    Thanks for reading!! 😀
