Bleep Bloop, a video games talkshow hosted on CollegeHumor, posted an episode in which they talk about a variation of the board game The Settlers of Catan with a (classic) Star Trek twist.
The Settlers of Catan is a very popular German board game first published in 1995. Players are tasked with developing and building settlements using resources acquired during gameplay. These resources are drawn from a land type or obtained by bartering with other players. Completing specific objectives garners the player points; the first to reach a set number of points is declared the winner.
My favorite exchange occurs when Pat wishes to trade Jared for food. Unfortunately, as Jared notes, "[he] planned poorly if [he has] dilithium and no food."
This amuses me far more than it should. Just some über geeky fun.
