“Settlers of Brooklyn” is Catan for Hipsters
The island of Brooklyn is an uncolonized promised land. Using only the power of skinny jeans and kale, can you lead your intrepid band of entitled young “creative professionals” with rich parents to settle this untamed wilderness and claim the title of Longest Brunch?
Anyone who has ever played the award-winning, and crazy popular, board game “Settlers of Catan” will recognize all the beats in this pitch-perfect parody of hipsterdom. Use the resources at your disposal — vinyl, bicycles, etc — to out-build your opponent. Watch out for the realtor! And turn the isle of Brooklyn into what it was always meant to be: a theme park for wealthy young adults.
Kudos to Above Average for nailing for the board game and hipsters.
