Board game fans in the Nashville area were given a grand treat this April when Mayfair Games celebrated the first ever Catan Day at Catan Con 2015! For those of you who don’t know, Settlers of Catan made its debut 20 years ago, and has since gone on to be quite the sensation both in its native Germany and on this side of the Atlantic. Sporting a system that anyone can pick up and play while still boasting enough complexity to reward skill and strategic thinking, Catan has spent the last two decades gaining a devout following of fans that will stop at nothing in their high-stake wood-for-sheep trades. As a fan myself, I was very excited to get the chance to meet fellow enthusiasts and roll some dice at Catan Con.
Mayfair Games, publishers of the widely popular Catan series of tabletop games, are celebrating the 20th anniversary of this legendary board game with the first annual International Catan Day, and CatanCon, a convention dedicated solely to Catan and the rest of Mayfair’s line of terrific tabletop games.
The weekend of April 24th-26th, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, gamers from all over the country and the world will converge on Music City USA for three days of fun, fellowship, and, most importantly, gaming!
