The island of Catan rises up from the table for an immersive game experience like no other.

This long-awaited 3D Edition of the classic CATAN base game is based on terrain tiles that were hand sculpted by the game designer Klaus Teuber himself. All of the terrain is hand painted for stunning color, and intricately designed player pieces are antiqued for a look that is full of history and character.

Wow! A $300 plastic-fest that isn't a Kickstarter.

I can't decide whether this looks ugly or not. I like the towns and cities.

I have the first English edition, and feel all subsequent editions are garish and ugly. Sadly, very few people will play my copy, as they can't adjust to the more subtle artwork.

A friend has one one these. Still does, no doubt. The irony is that we've never played Settlers.

It looks almost identical to the previous 3D edition except that one came in a nicer wooden box.

That seems to be the case with everyone who owns the previous 3D edition. Like, they save it for special occasions or something, so they never play it much.

We had a copy of the old one at my store, it was pretty cool. At the time the price seemed utterly outrageous. The new one doesn’t look as good, doesn’t include Cities and Knights, and is somehow even more outrageously priced.

In the PR I got about it, it says that Klaus Teuber himself sculpted the pieces.

While researching this, I also discovered that Google hates Klaus Teuber:

I still love Catan, but I hate paying a lot for plastic bits, so... pass.

I'm a fan of classic Catan. I'm wondering how it will be realized. Great news, anyway
