I saw this article about a gorgeous homemade redesign and had to share.
It's a laser-cut acrylic set, with a minimalist space-age theme, that incorporates exploration from Catan: Seafarers and a few other house rules.

Enjoy!

When I die I want people to look at the condition of my games and say, "Man, he really played these alot."

I really like seeing the different takes on Settlers boards and this is no different.

However, this is without a doubt the worst robber I've seen.

It's a mixed bag. The resource cards and the hexes themselves are very gorgeous. So are the cities and the roads -- I'm in love! Acrylic always looks really cool and this is no exception.

The development cards are a disappointment, and I agree the robber is strange (though functional, as it covers up the number being robbed). Overall, there's more good than bad here!

Why is there no Word Games Forum or Subdomain?

There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

Meh. It doesn't look like anything. Not even "deep space". And some of the pictured configurations are illegal.

Space doesn't make a good theme for this game, IMO. Even Starfarers is rather weird with its stationary planets that produce only one resource, and the two-dimensional universe.

Do you have space wood for space sheep?
