‘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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
