Does anyone know the name of the font used for Settlers of Catan? I'm attempting to make graphics and I'd prefer to have the correct font. I'd also appreciate it if you could tell me where I can download the font too.

Thanks!

On Siedeln.de the font "Georgia" was mentioned as being similar (to the font used on German boxes, I suppose).

Thanks for the reply. I've found many fonts that are similar, but I can't find one with the same style serifs.

Using the What The Font tool with some high quality images I was told that Garamond MT Bold was the best match. I didn't find anywhere to download it (although I didn't look hard) but I already had Garamond Bold which looks very close for my purposes. This was all based only on the number chits, but hopefully it helps.

Thanks for the heads up. That font is fairly close, but the T does not quite match up properly.

I know this is a really old thread, but was searching for the font myself... just wanted to let you know that I found out it was called minion.... dunno if you ever discovered it. You can find it at fontzone.net.

I can't remember what I eventually used as a substitute. Minion is certainly pretty close, but the serifs look just a little bit off.
