Review by Robert on 6th February, 2012
5 stars "A good extension"

Enjoyed this as a change from the standard. Less complex than many extensions and provoked a good deal of discussion. Rules easy to understand although the Pyrrhic victory seems the most common outcome. Easier if another player maintains the Disaster tracki

Review by Nathan on 21st April, 2013
3 stars "Interesting change, but a bit too strong-"

Had a fun few games with oil springs. As far as a physical product goes, well worth it. Tiles look/feel like the games ones and the rule changes are explained in detail.

After a few games I'm thinking I may fiddle with the rules. Oil seems too flexible. Everyone ended up just grabbing some oil and converting it to resources instead of trading.

A nice bit of flavour if you only have standard Catan, otherwise if you've got one of the expansions, I wouldn't bother. I no longer use oil springs after obtaining Cities and Knights.

For the low price, it's worth it to spice up your next game.

Review by Graeme on 21st January, 2013
4 stars "Well worth the price"

This Settlers of Catan mini-expansion adds a little bit of luck to the game (usually bad luck!), but not that much complexity. Oil replaces the desert hex, and one each of the forest and pasture hexes. It's powerful, but comes at a cost.

Enough pieces are included for the ordinary 3–4 player game, and for a 5–6 player game, which is a nice touch at the price!

Review by Grant on 3rd May, 2012
5 stars "Worth it."

Despite it being available free online, I still think it is worth paying for the expansion, as the nice card tiles make it much more enjoyable to play.

The expansion adds oil to the game, oil is effectively a super resource, you can do basically anything with it. The catch, it screws over the planet resulting in your beautiful settlements destruction, or resource loss.

Oil adds a new level of strategy to the game, as well as the ability to threaten to cause natural disasters on your fellows if they don't accept your trade.

All in in all, it's a fun little simple expansion.

Eureka! Oil has been discovered on the island of Catan. The great engineers of Catan have learned ways to improve production using this valuable new resource, both by converting it into other materials and enabling the upgrade of cities into metropolises. But oil is scarce and its use does not come without cost. Using oil produces pollution, as well as climate changing emissions, which bring with them the threat of coastal flooding—and absolute disaster. With the discovery of oil on Catan, the Settlers face a new challenge: deciding whether the common good is worth limiting oil usage or whether the pursuit of victory is worth the risk of ruin.


  • 1 tile sheet
  • 1 rules set

Note: This is an expansion. Requires Settlers of Catan to play.
