Home Made Wooden Settlers of Catan

Full BoardOn the subject of home made board games here is another one, this time it’s Settlers of Catan again from Reddit, user amaurer3210 made this with his fiancée for a friends wedding.

I machined each tile from 3/8″ ply. Each one has six magnets set into the sides so that they snap together nicely.

My fiancee did the artwork while we then silkscreened onto each tile after staining.

We all play on it nearly every weekend.

The magnets are a great idea!

Arguably it’s not as professional as the one by Boardcrafting that I posted here a couple of years ago but it’s still very nice.

Beautiful Settlers of Catan Wooden Board


This is an amazing Kickstarter project, I really enjoy Settlers of Catan but one of biggest issues with the game is that all the tiles slide all over the place. A bunch of guys realized this and decided to make a wooden board to hold the tiles, it looks like it’s evolved into one hell of a beautiful project though with laser etched wooden tiles.
