Pioneers is a free board game based on The Settlers of Catan board game.
Pioneers can be played online against other players, or locally, directly against the computer.
In Pioneers settlers will find themselves in virgin places that man has not yet discovered. Hence, the effort is extra and players must build from scratch the necessary infrastructure for human survival: the houses, roads, towns and productive farms. In other words, perform the work of any settler who arrives at a place for the first time and wishes to settle there.
During the game, players must place the pieces wisely forming cities, roads and production units. The better you place the pieces, the more points you accumulate and this is how you win in the game. It also includes a map editor and a game server.
The great popularity of Settlers of Catan made this version Pioneers to be developed for computers. Its appeal lies in having a recreational level mixed with a simple mechanic and a complex dynamic.
Pioneers do not require installation: you can run the downloaded program directly. It is available in several languages, including English, which makes it easier to understand how the program works.
