    Dear Cities & Knights fans, More than 20 years ago – in autumn of 1998 – the CATAN – Cities & Knights expansion was released in Germany. Since then, Cities & Knights has become very popular among advanced Catan players, and has been continuously available in retail stores and online. We considered it appropriate to acknowledge this great success and celebrate it with you by means of an anniversary game – a scenario for Cities & Knights. The German version of the anniversary game – entitled CATAN – Die Legende der Eroberer – was released in July 2019, almost a year after the actual C&K anniversary, owing to its long development time and quite sizable content. CATAN – Legend of the Conquerors, the English version of the game, is expected to be published in June of 2020. About four years ago, my son Benjamin and I started developing this game. …
