As part of my oversized 3D set I am printing I am including the Great River. It will just be part of my larger board.
For a long time I have wondered what I could have in my play-sets that would make them stand out as different.
In a recent Reddit forum I had a discussion about whether the 3D set is the rarest Catan game.
Below are various photos from the newly released Star Trek reprint. Each photo is displayed at a smaller size, but right click and go view image and you can see the full 1200px wide image.

I collect English and German Catan sets. Elsewhere on this site I think I even say I have no intnetion of collecting other languages as there are just too many of them.
Therefore it was a surprise this week to buy three Japanese sets all on the same day.
This week I have added two new items to my collection.
1995 - Franckh-Kosmos 1st Edition
The first, and most important, is a set of Catan by "Franckh-Kosmos" from 1995. This was the very first set of "Die Siedler Von Catan" released commercially and predates the winning of the 1995 SdJ Game of the Year award that appears on later reprints.
This week I have bought my 50th board version of Catan, excluding extensions and duplicates.
