Catan (formerly Settlers of Catan) is an intense game where you are trying to be the most powerful force on the island of Catan by building roads, settlements, and cities. Pair this game with the juicy New York burger with pastrami, swiss and Good Move’s signature sauce. What better meal to eat while you are dominating your opponents than a delicious 1/3 lb burger with all the fixins.

Looking for a quick game and a snack? Try Good Move’s signature snack trays and pick 3 different items. For a short game like One Night Ultimate Werewolf, try the combination of the peanut butter filled pretzels, the s’mores and more mix, and the salty dog mix so you can immerse yourself in what it’s like to be a true werewolf.
