25 Years of CATAN

Crazy how time flies. 25 years ago CATAN (then still called "The Settlers of Catan") was presented to the world public. If you want to be specific, it was in February 1995 at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany.

Since then, “CATAN - The Game” has been sold more than 30 million times worldwide and is available in over 40 languages. Countless extensions and variants have appeared. Above all, however, it is a story about how a game idea brings people of all ages, different gaming experiences or different origins to one table or connects them via the Internet.

Even if this year is overshadowed by the corona pandemic and many of the planned events for the anniversary had to be postponed to next year, we would like to share some special things with you this year. It starts with the book "My Journey to CATAN" by Klaus Teuber, in which he describes the genesis of the "Settlers of Catan". Definitely worth reading and not just for CATAN fans if you want to learn more about the development of a board game.

In October we will release our special 25th anniversary edition of CATAN with many great extras.
