Catan Card Game - Revision

 
January 23, 2010

In 1996, a little over a year after the sensational success of the board game "The Settlers of Catan," the "Catan Card Game" (for 2 players) was published. Originally, the game was designed as an answer to the request of many players who also wanted to be able to enjoy the Settlers of Catan as a 2-player game. Soon, however, the game developed a life of its own: expansions were added that led the Card Game further and further away from the Catan Base Game, made it more complex, and brought it thematically closer to - and, in part, even beyond - Cities & Knights.

For the fans of the complex Card Game, this was great - but newcomers who, having the background of the Board Game, now also wanted to learn the Card Game had a hard time getting started.

For Klaus Teuber, this was reason enough to completely revise the Card Game, right before its 15th anniversary.
