The recently completed 2019 NCAA college basketball tournament brought home the widely shared, abiding passion for the game—-the game being the addictive, old-school relic Settlers of Catan.

Stars of two tournament teams, Payton Pritchard of Oregon and Grant Williams of Tennessee,  confessed an obsession with Settlers, with Williams even being approached courtside, prior to the opening round against Colgate, to autograph a physical edition of the game.

Settlers is also just one of a number of games that have figured in deal toys we’ve designed over the years.
