Nice reading. I didn't know there's an actual Catan webshop. Should have known though. But seriously, a 'custom' cooky cutter? http://www.catanshop.com/Settlers-of-Catan-Custom-Cookie-Cut...

And not a single mention of Jay Tummelson, you know the guy that convinced Mayfair to pick it up in the beginning, the guy who pushed German games to the US.

At least in the perspective of the United States, this English article would not be.

Big miss IMHO!

Do you have a link to any more detailed history on this? Always wondered if Jay favored the change in artwork that Mayfair did. A big mistake (but clearly not big enough to kill the game in the U.S...) that Jay mainly avoided at Rio Grande.
