    False AVG Virus Warning for Catan C&K

    It has come to our attention that the latest AVG virus scanner reports the main CatanSuR.exe program from our game “Catan - Cities & Knights” to be virus infected. However, this is not the case: This is a so-called “false positive”. Rest assured: There is no virus in our product. We have double-checked this with several different scanners (including Norton and Avira). …

    Wil Wheaton blogs about “The Settlers of Catan”

    Yesterday, Wil Wheaton a/k/a Ensign Wesley Crusher from “Star Trek – The Next Generation” blogged about playing a delicious game of “The Settlers of Catan” during his latest boat trip. [Click here to read his blog.] In his blog he also mentions “Evil Wil”, his bad alter ego he has repeatedly portrayed when guest-starring “as himself” on the famous TV show “The Big Bang Theory” - which lately featured “The Settlers of Catan” as well. One can only imagine the possible hilarity if Wil would challenge Sheldon an the rest of the gang in a game of “Catan”, perhaps even “Star Trek Catan” (which is not yet available in the USA). …

    “The Settlers of Catan” on “The Big Bang Theory” - again!

    We are very delighted that for the second time, “The Settlers of Catan” was featured in the world-famous TV show “The Big Bang Theory” - namely in the 100th jubilee episode 5x13 “The Recombination Hypothesis”. The first time, the guys just played Catan without even mentioning the name of the game, but now Sheldon “unintentionally” delivered the famous, yet naughty “Who has wood for my sheep?" joke - which was, no doubt, absolutely hilarious. If you live in the USA, you can watch the episode in full length for a limited time on the official CBS website. …
