It's great! Everybody has a chance of winning, even if they are playing for the first time. Catan was designed so that everybody, throughout the whole game, has a levelled playing field, unlike Monopoly, where when someone starts to take a lead, the game becomes pretty boring.
I got a DIY business version of their standing desks, where I had to create my own desk surface, and it was the perfect (and only) solution to fit a standing desk in my window sill, exactly where I wanted it. I’ve also added some aftermarket wheels to it, and it runs great!
