Board game play.
The settlers of Catan
have an ingenious plan,
for dominion of the west,
to make zombies of the rest.

They begin at Scotland Yard,
playing their courageous card;
master labyrinth pay day,
with some checkers on the way.

Like some top secret spies,
they can’t stop telling lies.
On the river, roads and rails,
break the safe is what prevails.

Stock ticker power grid,
Tigris and Euphrates bid;
Puerto Rico squatter licks,
great train robbery for kicks.

Journey through Europe slow,
game of life will come and go;
Transamerica crosstrack,
pirate’s cove and risk out back.

Princes of Florence in sight,
Saint Petersburg careers in sight;
Modern art Niagara dune,
pack and stack, can’t stop too soon.

Don‘t miss the boat Yahtzee,
timberland monopoly;
for these settlers are a group,
playing board game on the stoop.
