First published back in 1995, Settlers of Catan is one of the world's most widely known European games. Considered by many to be the gateway game of choice.
To begin the game, you build the game board using hexagonal terrain tiles. Catan is born - a beautiful island with mountains, pastures, hills, fields, and forests, surrounded by the sea.
Catan 5th Edition has hit our shores. 5th Edition is completely compatible with your 4th Edition games. The die lines and die cut remain identical, meaning you could mix and match a 4th Edition copy of Settlers with a 5th Edition of Seafarers without difficulty or compatibility issues.
