Games with a theme of the tragedy of the commons are frequent guests on our blog and in our gamepedia . Previously, we posted about CRS games such as A Common Dilemma which you can play on our Games Platform. Now we are presenting a different game on the subject of common goods – Catan: Oil Springs.
The Catan: Oil Springs is the old good Catan with a little environmental twist. Players, besides other resources such as wood or stone, can also use oil to develop their cities and roads.

The game was a part of the Green Games project.
