E[G] Drinking Game S3 E05 – The Settlers of Catan


The Settlers of Catan. A board game where you trade sheep for wood and every friendship is in danger of ending. But before your friendship ends, try playing with these Educating [Geeks] Drinking Game rules — they might work. If you think we got silly on the Educating [Geeks] podcast for Catan, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet. We were definitely baaaaaad as Huan and Diana say. And we need your help with a few things, so make sure you read the entire post and help us solve a few conundrums.

The Robber Rules

  • For every seven 7 rolled after your first one, you must take a shot
  • For every round that you cannot gain resources because of the robber, you must drink
  • If you roll a 7 you must waterfall your drink until you place the robber on a tile

The Other Rules

  • If you commit an egregious game setup foul, you must drink
    • if you shuffle the resource cards together
    • if you call out the wrong resource while the banker is trying to do their job
    • if you asking for a resource that has previously been asked for numerous times with no result
    • if you slam your hand on the table in frustration and disrupt the board
    • if you place your settlement cattywampus on the board so it looks like a boot
  • After the board is set up, if there are three of the same tiles touching each other, every player must do a shot for every threesome
  • Every time someone buys a development card everyone takes a drink
  • If you have the longest road at the end of the game, you must empty your glass
  • What should the largest army rule be? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
  • Take a drink if you refuse a trade
  • Take a drink if anyone says “I hate you” or “our friendship is over” at any point in the game
  • If someone intentionally blocks you from extending your road, you and that person must take a drink together with arms intertwined

save your friendship


Signature Alcohol

Beer. We’d like to suggest SanTan brewery’s Hefeweizen. A German style of beer that none of us could think of during the podcast.


If you’re settling from Ireland than you should definitely be drinking Guinness or Smithwick’s.

Signature Cocktail

The name of our signature cocktail is The Eyeball. All of the suggested ingredients are listed below. I challenge you to create a cocktail using some combination of the items below and share it with us either in the comments or on social media. Huan, Cassie, Diana and I are getting together for International Table Top Day to play some Catan. We will be experimenting with how to combine these ingredients into a yummy cocktail and we will post an update with our results.

  • Vodka
  • Fireball whiskey
  • Grenadine
  • Pickled onion
  • Maraschino cherry
  • Black Olive

As promised, here’s the link to the 2 Broke Geeks’ The Settlers of Catan cocktail recipes.
