The latest must-have for Catan enthusiasts and collectors is coming this weekend!
For over 25 years Catan has been bringing friends and families around the table and no other board game has created a legacy of products so versatile! While the essence of the game is simple and easy to teach, winning relies on simple luck of the die, player forsight and negotation tactics - making this brilliant strategy game a universally appealing staple in any board game library.
Over the years, the creators found new and innovative ways to keep the base game fresh and new without having to replace the game entirely - with numerous expansions like: Seafarers, which introduced ships that required alternate resources and changed the strategy paths ; and Cities and Knights, which required your community efforts in protecting the territories ; and 5-6 player expansions for bigger gatherings. (And if you have Seafarers and Cities & Knights already, they recently introduced the Treasures, Dragons & Adventurers expansion to appeal to the fantasy crowd!)
They've released special editions like Game of Thrones: Brotherhood of the Watch, which reskinned the game where you are also tasked in defending Catan from the onslaught of Wildlings crawling over the wall. And they relocated Catan to Space: The Final Frontier, in Star Trek Catan, where Klingons prevent resource production and select The Original Series Star Trek characters each bring a special ability to support the final mission.
They've even catered to the gamers on-the-go with Catan: Traveler's Edition - a foldable version that could be played even on an airplane!
Last year, to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Catan released their 25th Anniversary Edition, which included the 5-6 player expansion, a "Helpers of Catan" scenario, iridescent paint on some components, and sleeves to protect your investment.
This time, Catan has gone bolder and bigger with the Catan 3D Collector's Edition uniquely featuring 19 hand-painted 3D terrain hex tiles, 6 hand-painted sea frames, 9 hand-painted harbor markers, 18 translucent number tokens, 4 sets of antiqued 3D player pieces in four colors, 1 antiqued robber figure, and 2 custom CATAN dice, providing an immersive experience to the base game like no other! If you're an avid fan of Catan, this Collector's edition is designed to be played, displayed and enjoyed everyday!
