The Next Championships

The Catan World Championship takes place every other year, alternating with the Catan European Championship. Therefore, the best Catan players worldwide will compete from October 10-12, 2014 in Berlin.

In the 2012 finals, players from Austria, Hong Kong, Lithuania, and Germany were pitted against each other. The Austrians prevailed, thereby scoring 40 points for the Worldwide All-time High Scores List!

Currently, Germany is at the top of this list, followed by the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Finland. We keenly anticipate the 2014 World Championship!


The next Catan European Championship will take place from November 20-22, 2015. As two years ago, the event will be staged at the “Spielefest” in Vienna. Two participants from each European country may compete for the title. Prior to this, however, they must have come out as winners in the national championships of their home countries. Only real pros will thus compete with each other in the finals!

In the All-time High Scores List, Italy currently ranks before Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. Will it change in 2015?

By the way, the championship will be broadcast and narrated live on the Internet. In due time, the link to this broadcast will be provided here and in the News section.
