For those that may enjoy the tabletop version of the game, but either not everyone wants to play or with there being a pandemic can get everyone to play. I mean, I guess you could set up an online meeting session with everyone having a cam and everyone buying the game to move the pieces, but then you get into who has what cards and it could take a very long time to play. But what is probably the easier and more fun way of going about it is playing Catan in VR. For those that may have not been aware, Catan has been available on a wide variety of Virtual Reality systems including Gear VR, Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, and even PlayStation VR. Now, Oculus Quest/Quest 2 fans, your time is now to play one of the great tabletop games that come to life all thanks to Virtual Reality. The goal in Catan is to take on actual other players (there is AI as well) all playing as settlers who try to establish as much of the colonies in this island known as Catan. You will need to acquire all the resources you can so you can build things like towns and roads and also trade with other players so in hopes you get the resources to gain the points and win the game.
