Elasund: The First City

Elasund: The First City is the second game in the Catan Adventures series.

In this game players both compete and cooperate to build the first city. A unique point of difference with this game is that it is not designed as a spin-off from another game, but instead is based on the Rebecca Gale novel, "Die Siedler von Catan." Of course this book was based on Catan.

Elasund was released in 8 languages (the Nordic edition had 4 languages included). There were also two German versions as the first release of this first set did not have the Kosmos logo on the front. Presumably this was a mistake as it was quickly followed by a corrected version with the logo. While not particularly valuable, the copy without the logo is very hard to find. I am missing the Nordic set and the rarer "No Logo" German set.

There was also a free print-and-play expansion for Elasund released too. Some may have been made up to give away at events as I have a set that were apparently collected at Spiel.
