Ever think your kid has telekinesis and is changing die rolls with his mind?  On a first name basis with the thief who is stealing your stuff?  That’s Catan1 for you.  Catan is everywhere, but Catan is also a small step above the roll and move games like Monopoly of our youths.  You roll the dice, you hope it gets you some resources, and you buy roads and cities with those resources.  But the dice do hate you.
