‘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!
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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
