What kind of Catan board layouts do they use in tournaments?

This is the board that was used in the Catan National Championship US Qualifier at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH on June 7, 2015 (between Mongo, Ed Tilton, Michael Bober and MJ Isabella – MJ ended up with the victory)

  • Setup: You’ll notice that this board is very balanced and has no perfect “first placement.” This is probably a game where I would love to place last, so I could coordinate my placements well.
