A settlement is a type of building in The Settlers of Catan and all expansions, scenarios, and variants.

Basic function Edit

Following the basic rules of the game, a settlement is built using 1 Lumber , 1 Brick, 1 Wool, and 1 Grain, and can only be placed on an unoccupied intersection that is at least two intersections away from another settlement, city, or metropolis. It provides the player that builds it with 1 Victory Point.

Settlements allow a player to collect resource cards from adjacent resource hexes. You receive one resource per settlement adjacent to a resource hex whenever the number on that hex is rolled.

A settlement may be upgraded to a city during a player's turn for the cost of 2 Grain and 3 Ore. The settlement is then returned to the player's supply and may be reused in a different location.
