World of Catan Wiki

Since 2004, Klaus Teuber has provided fans of The Settlers of Catan with rare promotional scenarios available only at special events and for a limited time only. Virtually all of the scenarios focus on a specific geographic region on Earth, generally in the Germanic countries. To date, five such scenarios have been released, all in varying numbers and availability.

These scenarios include:

Historical Scenarios[]

In addition to the above promotional scenarios, Kosmos has planned an extensive scenario series based on the founding of various regions worldwide. Most of the locations are in Germany, and all the scenarios follow roughly the same rules as the others. Originally, they were to be released in six month intervals, but KOSMOS has fallen short of that strategy. They have only released two scenarios, although a third was released in English as an official promotional.
