Catan: Ancient Egypt Coming In November

Klaus Teuber has reformatted his classic Settlers of Catan to bring gamers a new goal : Settle the Nile and build the Pyramids. Any fan of ancient Egypt will be excited to see this classic game redesigned to fit their interests. After you re-master the core game that we all know and love, variants and scenarios come to turn the game into a brand new adventure.

There are 10 god cards in Catan Ancient Egypt that grant players new options during the gameplay. You are depending on your oxcart in this game to build villages and temples while collecting resources from cattle pastures, quarries, and papyrus groves. The theme carries strong in this game with the Largest Mercanary Army and Longest Trade Route cards replacing the Largest Army and Longest Road cards. I’m looking forward to seeing more photos come forth about this new version of Catan. Contents of Catan: Ancient Egypt include:

  • 19 Terrain Hexes
  • 6 Frame Pieces
  • 18 Number Tokens,
  • 95 Resource Cards
  • 25 Development Cards
  • 4 Build Cost Cards,
  • 2 Special Cards “Longest Trade Route” and “Largest Mercenary Army”
  • 16 Temple Cities
  • 20 Settlements
  • 60 Oxcarts
  • 1 Robber
  • 2 Dice
  • 2 Card Holders
  • 1 Game Rules
  • 1 Almanac

Additional Scenario Contents:

  • 12 Papyrus Boats,
  • 1 Pyramid Building Site
  • 60 Pyramid Blocks
  • 10 God Cards,
  • 4 God Summary Cards
  • 4 “Pharaoh’s Blessing/Curse” cards,
  • 1 Vizier’s Favor Card

Catan: Ancient Egypt is set to release sometime in November of this year and will retain for $75.00. I really like games with an Egyptian theme, so this Catan really appeals to the Catan-loving gamer in me. Working in the time of the Pharaohs to raise the Egyptian empire sounds like a great time! We will update the page when we have an official release date.
