Catan - Rules of Play says:

This is a classic of our time, making Catan (formally Settlers of Catan) the modern Monopoly. Shame you don't get to play as the little dog! It’s a simple concept – create settlements across Catan and harvest supplies, which you trade with your opponents to gain enough resources to build cities and roads across the entire area! Simple but satisfying to execute as you muffle giggles as somebody claims they “have wood for sheep” and get frustrated when somebody refuses to trade you stone because they know you will build a city with it! Everybody - including Rules of Play - loves Catan, for good reason! 

Catan is the new refeshed and renamed version of Settlers of Catan, do not fear though, it is still the classic it always was! Why not expand your experiencies in Catan with some of the expansion packs within the Catan series: take to the seas with the Seafarers of Catan expansion or build castles in the Cities and Knights expansion, plunder some booty in the Explorers and Pirates expansion and bargin your way across Catan with the Traders and Barbarians expansion. The possibilieties are limitless!
