My Journey to CATAN

To celebrate 25 years of CATAN®, its designer reveals the true story of how it all came about…

About the game

For the first time, Klaus Teuber tells the complete story of the origin of the worldwide gaming sensation, The Settlers of Catan. Starting as a young man, he describes his enthralling journey from amateur board game inventor and his first successes, to the idea with which he completely revolutionized the game world in 1995, by creating a new game that would change his life.

Published in English for the first time, this is an entertaining slice of both real and board game history. Full of insights and background knowledge, previously unknown and personal, this is the book for all dedicated CATAN fans. It also includes a selection of fascinating photographs from across the years, most seen for the first time.

This book is for the fans, to celebrate 25 years of CATAN. It comes only as a luxury hardcover slipcase, in a strictly limited edition of 1000 numbered copies, each one individually signed by Klaus Teuber.

You find a sneak peak read by Klaus Teuber himself (in German with sub-titles) in the video section of this page.

It will only be available directly from the CATAN Shop. Pre-orders will open on September 12, 2020. The book will ship in Q4 2020.
