comment What are common contracts in Catan?
Incidentally, posting an answer to Bribing Off the Robber is what inspired me to ask this question in the first place. :)

Totally agree. To that point, my group considers the tracking who's ahead to be so central to the game's strategy that we open up a laptop and record in a spreadsheet the coins gained every turn. (Yes, this is extreme, and runs counter to the game rule of hiding your coins.)

Because I'm OCD about style.

While it may be true that people who play by the letter of the rules can't use contracts, my purpose in asking this question was to learn from people who play more like my groups. :)

We do require that you only enter into a new contract with the player whose turn it is. Additionally, we only allow players to pass resource cards at the appropriate times under the rules. For example, when I gain the rock I owe you, I don't pass it to you until it's either my turn or your turn.

At first we did it verbally, but now we pass each other spare wooden pieces as signifiers of the contracts: roads for Not-Hits, and occasionally settlements/cities for future cards (those resolve quickly, so it's not as important to use a token for them).

Fleshed it out, added balance section.
