A knight card is one of the 5 types of development card. In the standard deck, it is the most common one to be pulled (14 out of the 25 cards, or 56%, are knights). Using a knight allows you to move the robber and place it onto a new hex, and steal a random card from an opponent with settlements or cities adjacent to it. Playing 3 knight cards awards you the Largest Army card, worth 2 victory points. Any player who plays more knights is given the card, along with the 2 victory points.


  • You can play a knight before rolling the dice.
  • Players do not have to discard half their hand (if they have more than 7 cards) when a knight is played.
