The northern region known as the Gift was bestowed on the Night’s Watch thousands of years ago. This fertile land provides the Watch with lumber, brick, wool, grain, and ore. At least, it used to. As the Watch has become forgotten by the lords and ladies of Westeros, the infrastructure of the Gift has fallen into disrepair and the Lord Commander, Jeor Mormont, is willing to give anything to one who can restore the Gift to its former glory, even naming them as his successor.
In the A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch 5-6 Player Extension, you and up to five rivals have the chance to step into the role of brothers of the Night’s Watch, locked in fierce competition to become the next Lord Commander. As before, you'll do this by building roads, settlements, and keeps; purchasing Development Cards; and recruiting loyal guards to defend the Wall on your behalf. As two more brothers join the competition, you have been permitted to develop a larger area of the Gift, with new tiles and trade routes to accommodate either a five or six player game.
Additionally, each brother now has more chances to build and show their worth with the introduction of a Special Build Phase after each players' turns. At this time, all other players may choose to build or buy anything that they can afford with their resources—and making the most of these new opportunities can set you apart from the others.
