Settlers on a Roll!
The Catan Dice Game Is a Refreshing and New Way to Experience Catan!

Roll, Play, and Settle! Mayfair Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of the all new way to experience the world of Catan, the Catan Dice Game! Complete with six colorful resource dice, the dice game version of The Settlers of Catan also involves building settlements, roads, cities, and knights. But, you won't be placing any pieces made of wood or plastic on the map. Instead, each player will record these actions on the provided paper sheets which depict a map of the island. To produce resources players roll the resource dice, which have six resources, one on each side of the die, including gold as well!

The Catan Dice Game is a great way to experience Catan quickly or on-the-go. The game is small and portable so it can be taken with you practically anywhere. It is also a great game to pass the time in between games of the Catan board and card games. The Catan Dice Game can also be played all by yourself, in case you want to experience Catan even when no opponent is present! Most importantly, the Catan Dice Game is a fun and new way to experience The Settlers of Catan.

If you would like to learn more about the Catan Dice Game please check out There, you will find a free online version of this game including an introductory tutorial. In addition to playing the Catan Dice Game online, you can also win cool prizes, and play many more free games and join the Catan Online World!

Coming soon: The Catan Dice Game will be available in stores on May 8th!

Come Join the World Village!
The Newest Place to Meet on!

The Catan team is happy to announce the official declaration of the World Village in the Catan Online World. This is the central hub for all new players to the English PlayCatan offering. The World Village is also the place where all new members of the COW will start out.

It doesn't end at the World Village though, soon players will be able to branch off and found their own cities. Founding a new city means you get to improve it and even manage your own website about the city, which the Catan team will host for you. Content and control of the city website is left up to the founders.

If you haven't been to please give it a look. It is the most rapidly growing community in the world of Catan.
