In Catan Seafarers scenarios where you earn two bonus points for your first settlement on a new island, what happens when you upgrade that settlement to a City? How many points is that now worth?

1 Answer 1


You get the two bonus points for the first build on the island. If you change the settlement to a city, it is not the first build anymore. So you keep the bonus points for the settlement.

  • Thank you , Just to clarify it acts as two victory points so when adding up points it would be 1 point for settlement and two victory points for first settlement. If the settlement changes to city , then it would be two points for city plus the 2 victory Points earned for original settlement , is that correct ?

  • If you build the city, it is 2 points for the city and 2 points for the first build bonus. For a total of 4 points. May 25, 2020 at 6:37
