Players are recent immigrants to the newly populated island of Catan. Expand your colony through the building of settlements, roads, and villages by harvesting commodities from the land around you. Trade sheep, lumber, bricks and grain for a settlement, bricks and wood for a road, or try to complete other combinations for more advanced buildings, services and specials. Trade with other players, or at local seaports to get resources you might lack. The first player to achieve 10 points from a combination of roads, settlements, and special cards wins.
You are a monarch, like your parents before you, a ruler of a small kingdom of rivers and evergreens. Unlike your parents, however, you have hopes and dreams! You want a bigger and more pleasant kingdom, with more rivers and a wider variety of trees. You want a Dominion! In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums. All are small bits of land, controlled by petty lords and verging on anarchy. You will bring civilization to these people, uniting them under your banner! To do this you will hire minions, construct buildings, spruce up your castle, and fill the coffers of your treasury, all the while preventing competing monarchs from infringing on your rightful domain!
The southern French city of Carcassonne is famous for its unique Roman and Medieval fortifications. Players develop the area around Carcassonne by laying tiles, then deploy their followers on the roads, in the cities, in the cloisters, and in the fields. With a little luck and some clever tile-placement, you can claim victory in Carcassonne!

Battleship Galaxies is a space combat game that has very little to do with its namesake. The two sides in this struggle, the human Intergalactic Space Navy and the alien Wretcheridians, are represented by fleets of detailed plastic spaceships. Combat takes place on a board with hexagon-shaped spaces. Each turn, a player can spend a certain number of energy points to move, fire weapons, and do other things. The goal of the game, as well as the location on the board of obstacles, energy sources, wormholes, and shield generators, are set by scenario, a number of which are provided in a scenario booklet that comes with the game.
