Settler Wagons are German Settlers who augment the German economy alongside regular Settlers. Unlike the French Coureur des Bois, they do not replace regular Settlers and cannot be built from the Town Center. German players begin each game with three Settler Wagons. More can be sent via Home City shipments. There is also a Home City card that enables them to be trained from the Mill, however there is a build limit of twenty. They are highly effective at resource gathering, surpassing both settlers and Coureurs des Bois.
The Settler Wagon is equal to two Settlers in terms of resource-gathering, cost and population requirements.
Settler Wagons can be assigned with the same tasks as Settlers.
Settler Wagons can build the following buildings:
2 Settler Wagons requires 1 Settler Wagon to be unlocked. Then other 2 Settler Wagons and TEAM 2 Settler Wagons becomes available and if home city is at level 10. Finally comes 3 Settler Wagons ready to be unlocked after unlocking the former.

"Prairie Schooners and Conestoga Wagons were two types of covered wagons used by settlers and pioneers to cross the early frontiers of North America. Prairie Schooners were lighter and needed two or four horses or oxen to pull them. Conestoga Wagons were big, heavy wagons that needed teams of six or eight to pull them along. Before railroad tracks crisscrossed the Great Plains, Conestoga Wagons hauled most of the freight that went back and forth between the east and west coasts. Conestoga Wagons originated in a German area of Pennsylvania."
- Settler Wagon is an elderly man dressed in traditional Bavarian clothing. His wagon is being pulled by a mule or a donkey.
- He comments in Standard German with a gentle and kind voice. Being a German unique unit, other civilizations do have one chance to acquire two Settler Wagons if they are allied to a German player who ships TEAM 2 Settler Wagon-card.
- He resembles the Atlantean Citizen in Age of Mythology.
