‘Settlers of Catan: Electroshock Therapy Expansion’ – Catan that Shocks You if Your Turn Takes Too Long

AlphaPhoenix demos his ‘Electroshock Therapy Expansion’ for Settlers of Catan – a circuit that shocks players who take to long to complete their turn. And yes, as you can see in the video below you can be shocked multiple times in a turn for taking too long! The first video below shows some voltage-shocking in action, and in the second video AlphaPhoenix walks through how they arrived at this project and built it – one of the great uses of a laser cutter indeed!

shocker

This Settlers of Catan board shocks you when you take a slow turn! Gently encourage those you are playing with to play efficiently with the threat of electricity!
This is a hilarious project that actually works as intended – I’ve played four games with it now and it very effectively speeds up gameplay. I made the Electroshock tile to add on to my existing custom Catan board that I lasercut and painted a couple ears ago.
