The Settlers of Catan

Four and a half years ago, our friends Charles and Debra introduced us to a game called The Settlers of Catan. After playing one game, I was hooked. Naomi gave me the game for my birthday a couple of months later, and we began introducing the games to friends and family. We have introduced it to probably a dozen families or more already. When we play a game--it is almost assuredly either The Settlers of Catan, or more recently Ticket To Ride.

I am writing about this, because Wired has just published a story about the game and its increasing popularity. Those that are already familiar with the game will find much of the article pedantic, but it also introduces the reader to Klaus Teuber the creator of the game, even includign a picture the man himself. Check it out. If you haven't already played the game, I recommend you do so.

There are several ways to play it for free online:

Java Settlers
S3D Connector
Aso Brain Games
