Of Catan and Canals

by Susan Rozmiarek

No, this isn’t about a new Settlers of Catan scenario but rather two separate interesting news items.

The first is actually about Settlers, the launch of “Catan Online” at This is a subscription based multiplayer version of the original game. You can find more info here.

At $29.99 per year, it appears to be a pretty good deal for Settler fans. There is a free trial period and Iain Cheyne had some pretty positive things to say about it on his weblog.

The other newsworthy item is the announcement of a new Ragnar Brothers game, Canal Mania. Hooray! Viking Fury was probably my favorite game released last year and this new game practically has me drooling in anticipation. Read all about it on their website and make sure you catch the “Gaming Parlour” link for even more details. I’m actually kind of glad it won’t include one of their famous linen cloth maps. Heresy for a diehard fan, I know, but I’m a sucker for high quality bits and art.
