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.
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.
One of the rarest games in the Catan universe is the 'The Communication in Catan." Made in 2000 for the French telecommunication company Alcatel, the game was produced in Germany, published in English but only distributed in France.
Today I received in the post two autographed Catan postcards signed by the great man himself. These are the first items in my collection signed by Klaus Teuber and I am especially proud of the Seafarers card as it is personalised. Thank you Mr Teuber for taking the time to do this.
Through a message board I was advised that Catan will soon be releasing new floor versions of my favourite game.
While photos were posted of a few trial versions, below is the game I am wanting to add to my collection. I can't think of anything better than a sunny day, a few drinks and a game of Catan on the lawn.
