Before you read this article, you will need to know the following terms and definitions:
|Game(-s):||Noun. Singular or Plural. A standalone version of Settlers of Catan, which can be played right out of the box without making additional purchases. There is only one standalone (base) game of Catan.|
|Expansion(-s):||Noun. Singular or Plural. An Catan game that cannot be played by itself. It must be used in conjunction with a standalone (base) game. The 5 & 6-player expansions are a good example of this.|
|Scenario(-s):||Noun. Singular or Plural. A small set of playing pieces and instructions that can be added to normal Catan gameplay. It cannot be played by itself--it must be used in conjunction with a standalone (base) game. The "Oil Springs" scenario is a good example of this.|
|Variant(-s):||Noun. Singular or Plural. A set of instructions for using the pieces from a Catan game or expansion in a new way. Most variants are fan-generated and require printing and cutting out new pieces.|
Building a bridge requires 2 brick resources and 1 lumber resource. A new bridge must always connect to at least one (1) of your existing roads, boats, or buildings. A bridge can only be built on one of the paths crossing a river. These sites are marked with dashed lines. For the purposes of the Longest Trade Route, connecting buildings, expanding your network, and moving knights and wagons, a bridge is treated as if it were a road. You can only build 3 bridges. You may not use the Road Building Development Card to build a bridge instead of a road. When you build a bridge, you receive a bonus of one (1) extra gold coin (in addition to the one  gold coin you receive for building a trade route on a path adjacent to a river hex).
