Cool things of 2010 – No. 14

#14. Settlers of Catan

We were recently introduced to this board game…and are hooked!  And attempting to get others hooked as well. 

Yes, it has a totally nerdy name.  And the box even looks nerdy.


Right? Super nerdsville looking. 

But this board game is super fun and available in 30 languages…which makes us late to the game (haha…pun intended) – it’s been around since 1995 (but only in Europe).  It’s incredibly popular, easy to play, and well…fun.  Apparently the Washington Post called Settlers of Catan “the board game of our time.”  Whoa.   

It’s so popular, that there are TONS of expansion packs you can buy that can spice up the original gameplay.

Read more about its history here.

Watch out Scrabble…you’ve got some competition for my game-playing attention. Smile
