Hi everyone!

Once again, I just wanted to thank everybody for tuning into my "Settler from Catan" youtube comedy series. Its been really great to hear all of your responses to the videos. The full Episode II is now online. This has been a really fun project (ALMOST as fun as the playing the game itself!).

Even when most people in New York had no idea what Catan was, everyone was still fascinated with the concept of a resource-trading super hero.

A lot of the time people would mis-read my fake Catan necklace and yell out things like "Hey! Catman!" or just randomly blurt out "Spiderman!"laugh

If you haven't seen the videos yet, check them out on my channel and let me know what you think. There's only a couple more "episodes," which I'm still editing together

Thanks,

John

I can only wonder "WHY?!" between laughter. Sort of amazing that nobody realizes what he's doing considering he's got CATAN written across his chest.

Very funny. It also shows how little even the most famous eurogame has penetrated the USA.

"Amazing"??? 'Settlers Of Catan,' while a hugely successful game (compared to several others) is still relatively unknown in the United States.

It's funny you say that because while my friend and I were filming this on the streets of New York City (all in one long, fun, but crazy day), we did in fact run into a couple of fellow Catan fans who almost couldn't believe what they were seeing. It was awesome. surprise

Of course, one of them was from Italy, but the others were all from the States. Who knows? Hopefully it will get more popular here though!

A couple of them even let us interview them - which I'll show in some upcoming episodes. Stay tuned.

Quite excellent! You should probably incorporate the "Thief", sort of along the lines of that "Hamburglar" fellow, and once anyone HAD "made a trade", then HE swoops in and steals that! Have his logo being a '7' or even spelled out as "SE7EN" and carrying a 'box'! Then have his would-be 'victims' exclaiming: "WHAT's in the BOX?!?"
surprise

Absolutely hilarious. YouTube has saved me from this wretched writer's strike. (Please come back, 30 Rock .sniff.)

I've seen Settlers crop up in the weirdest places. Strangest was seeing a group of Monks playing at the Tibetan Cultural Center.
