CATAN continues to be one of the most popular tabletop games around, and to celebrate its anniversary CATAN Studio and Asmodee have announced a special 25th Anniversary Edition of the classic game. The CATAN 25th Anniversary Edition includes the base game, the 5-6 player extension, custom dice, iridescent player pieces, new sorting trays, card sleeves, and more, and is a must for any fan of the franchise, which started in 1995 with The Settlers of CATAN. CATAN was one of the first eurogames to really build steam in the United States, and more often than not you'll find at least one copy of the game in any board game collection, as over 32 million copies of CATAN games have been sold thus far.
"We have heard so many stories of families coming together over games of CATAN, finding moments of joy during a distressing time in our history," said Pete Fenlon, CEO of CATAN Studio. "We are honored to introduce so many new gamers to the wide and wonderful world of tabletop games — there is probably no better way to celebrate 25 years than that."
