It had been years since i visited the isle of Catan, but i couldn’t leave such an important and well-played game off the site. i received this copy of the 5th edition around my birthday, and wondered what had changed since i’d last tried in vain to trade sheep for wood. In this unboxing video, i line up my early-aughts version of The Settlers of Catan against the slicker, modernized 5th edition to see what’s changed, and what has stayed the same. If you want to see the game in action, watch my How to Play Catan video.

Catan has earned its place in any self-respecting board gamer’s collection, even if (like me) you’ll never, ever play it again so long as you live. To shop for your own copy of Catan, use the Amazon link below, and i’ll receive a small commission.
