All Hail the Lord of Catan!


After about 4 years of competitive play on-line I finally won the honor of being the top ranked player in Settlers of Catan on-line. This community of about 1000 players, at any given time, is very competitive and tough to crack and they have honed my skills at Catan greatly.

For those not familiar with this board game, in Settlers of Catan you start with two settlements, collect clay, ore, wheat, sheep, and lumber, and build roads, more settlements, and cities to achieve supremacy on the island of Catan.

A board game with experienced players can take an hour to an hour and a half to play. On-line a game takes about 10 to 20 minutes because the computer does all the dealing and figuring for you.

It is also a very social game, with the chat box, and I get to communicate with players from all over the world, particularly the US, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, and the Netherlands. Those seem to be the big Catan playing countries.




It's too bad that your so-called "proof" can be easily recreated in about 5 minutes with Photoshop!!!! :-D

Actually, what I meant to say was: "Congratulations!" :-) You are the King of Catan!

I just wish you would have gotten the screan shot of me being 6th. We could have sent it to mom and let her know what 8 years of college tuition has gotten her boys.
