A lot of games have luck -- the poster was asking how tournament organizers reduce it.

This is a more precise title --- of all the house rules out there, I care only about contracts.

comment Public knowledge in Settlers of Catan?
For online versions, there doesn't seem to be a limit to the number of resource cards given out, so although the information isn't given out, it isn't there to be given.

@Dave Though, you can overcome that if you have a good eye for the resource stack sizes, even if you haven't been paying attention to rolls. If the wheat pile is at about two-thirds its original size (19), there are about 6-7 wheat cards outstanding.

Gotcha. To get an equivalent effect, die-rollers could simply declare certain 7's to be rerolls. For example, declaring 1+6 a reroll is equivalent to removing two cards.

Doesn't this give a huge advantage to player 4? In addition to getting to coordinate his city and settlement, he gets to place his city in the 4th-best spot (players 3-1 get theirs in the 6th-8th).

Interesting. You mention that people could use the special building phase found in the 5-6 player expansion -- is that what you personally use?

@Lance I hope the answers here differ from the ones at 'how to reduce slow starts,' given that many game-shortening rule changes have nothing to do with slow openings, but we'll see.
