  • Pirate Lairs! Pirates prowl the seas along with your trading vessels.  Play tribute to the pirates or drive them off.  Then find and capture their lairs to earn gold and Victory Points.
  • Fish For Catan! The people of Catan are short of food.  These are deep water fish thought, so first you must find their shoals before you catch them.  The Council of Catan will reward players with Victory Points for returning fish to the island, as well as for capturing pirate lairs. Just watch out for roaming pirates, not only will they demand gold for tribute, they might get to the fish before you do!
  • Spices For Catan! The Council of Catan wants you to find fish and spices for the people of Catan.  As before, they reward the most industrious merchant captains with Victory Points.  Obtaining spice will require you to become friends with the mysterious inhabitants of the Spice Islands but in return they will not only trade you spices but teach you their knowledge of sailing or even pirate fighting techniques.
  • Explores & Pirates! This lengthy and challenging scenario brings everything from the previous scenarios together. Explore new lands, capture pirate lairs, find fish and befriend the inhabitants of the spice isles.
