Hello, this game was revamped by my boyfriend. He wasn't happy with the stale look of the game.


The original game box.



The Wasteland, Wheat, and Brick game tiles - before is below and after is above.



The Forest, Sheep, and Ore game tiles



The water/port game tile.



The complete game setup with the new tiles and existing playing peices and cards.



And finally the box we made for it, the new peices couldn't fit in the old one! Thanks for looking.

Aah! I love Settlers!  I love your idea (perhaps a homemade board? hm...)  The wasteland is my favorite.  Grin  But how do you build roads?

Thanks for all your great comments. All the pieces are octagons cut from MDF wood, and then the different resources were made from sculpy and paint with a little help from pipe cleaners and q-tips. Smiley The road, settlement and city pieces are still the originals from the game.
Thanks again.

If it wasn't for the Cupcakes of Catan (http://www.adorablog.org/2007/05/cupcakes_of_cat.html) I'd say that was the awesomest revamp of Settlers I've ever seen. But it's still pretty damn awesome.

I love that not a single person in my "real" world has ever heard of Settlers of Catan -- but here at Craftster, there's an entire subcommunity of players!

What I like about what you did (besides it looking awesome) is that it looks like it is much less likely that the pieces would move around, which can also happen. 

As a side note, a fun thing to do (and totally dorky) is to make a Settlers soundtrack.  Songs that go with pieces of the game.  Such as "She's a Brickhouse", "We built this city", "Fields of Gold", "Riding through the desert on a horse with no name", etc.  It makes for even more fun when playing the game!

As a HUGE settlers fan, I must tell you, you've done something horrible to me.
You've made me want to create a 3D version of this game.
That I can't even afford to buy. Because I can't go doing that to my original set!
:O
Uh oh.
If I get it done the fam will have to put up with me begging to play even more now!!
Great job!

AWESOME! I agree that the version I have now looks "stale", that's the perfect word for it. I used to have a different version, one where the pieces had a bit more of a updated look to them, but when someone was selling their 5-box set of catan game plus multiple expansions for $40, I returned mine to Barnes&Noble, and ran out to trade the $40 with him in a hot second. ONLY drawback was that my new set(s) looks really different.

But you've re-inspired me to do something about it myself!!  I'll have no problem with 'defacing' my only game set, since I'm not partial to the way it looks in the first place. Wink
