Settlers of Catan is one of the most popular board games in the entire world, with the various Catan family of games having sold over 11 million copies since 1995. For many gamers Settlers represented an introduction to a new type of game that did not rely heavily on luck, but instead requires the players to plan strategically and negotiate with the other players.
