Requires the CATAN base game to play.
“The Crop Trust is a small organization with a big mission.”
—Marie Haga, Executive Director of the Crop Trust
CATAN – Crop Trust is a compelling scenario for the CATAN base game. In cooperation with the Crop Trust, it allows you to experience mankind’s vital struggle for seed diversity. Players balance their individual need to harvest crops versus their collective need to store seeds for future use.
What if crop loss threatened Catan? Can you settle Catan without threatening the food supply?
CATAN – Crop Trust is a compelling scenario for the CATAN base game. In cooperation with the Crop Trust, it allows you to experience mankind’s vital struggle for seed diversity. You balance your individual need to harvest crops versus your collective need to store seeds for future use. By harvesting too many crops, you endanger the seed diversity necessary to a healthy environment. In so doing, you threaten your world with mass extinctions and a collapse of the food supply.
Many of us live in crowded places in an ever more crowded world. Food shortages and famine stress populations in poor and marginal environments. Regional plant losses threaten crop diversity. CATAN – Crop Trust is an educational but very fun game experience for the family that may lead to thoughtful understanding about the balance between nature and agriculture. Here, we introduce simple, semi-cooperative rules that enliven and educate the CATAN experience. The box also contains a specially-produced almanac that explains the history of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Frequently Asked Questions, and examples of the importance of crop conservation: from enabling scientists to develop more resilient rice, to more nutritious maize and heat-tolerant beans.
