If the board game Catan, is the most popular in the world, why didn’t I know about it? Did you? I saw a special on Catan tonight on NBC Nightly News. I taped it for you. No sense for both of us to be in the dark.
Forty million copies have sold worldwide in 30 different languages.
The game is all about the Settlers of Catan, sometimes shortened to Catan, or to Settlers. It is a multiplayer board game designed by Klaus Teuber and first published in 1995 in Germany.
Players assume the roles of settlers. Each player attempts to build and develop holdings while trading and acquiring resources. The first to reach a set number of points wins. The game is published by Mayfair Games, Filosofia, Capcom, 999 Games, Κάισσα, and Devir. The Settlers of Catan became one of the first German board games to achieve popularity outside Europe.
