My wife just gave me the 15 anniversary edition as a birthday gift, I am so happy, as many of you I was introduced to euro gaming thanks to Catan, I have owned the 4th edition for many years and played lots of times, but always wanted to own the 15 anniversary, but I also wanted to expand to C&K.

Are both compatible? Can I sell/give away my old 4th edition and just get C&K and combined with the 15 anniversary? As far as I saw from a C&K picture you can simply combine both, there are no resource tiles in C&K that couldn't match to the wood tiles in 15's edition.

I'll appreciate your suggestions.

I have the 15th anniversary edition and C&K, and they are only partially compatible. The cards in the 15th A. Edition are the cards used in the European editions of the game, and they are smaller than the cards in C&K. So to make C&K fully compatible you will need to buy a set of replacement cards for the basic game. The replacement cards are same size as the cards in C&K. These cards are available in most game stores that carry the Catan games. Also, the 15th A. Edition comes with the Viking style wooden pieces, which means the metropolis gate-shaped piece from C&K won't fit over the city piece properly. I did not find this to be problem, as you can place the metropolis "gate" just in front of your city over the connecting road piece which will hold it in place.

[Edit]. Actually, since you already have the 4th Edition you could just keep the cards from that to use with your 15th A. Edition when you play C&K.

In such case if I own the 15th anniversary edition and the european version of CK I asume that I won´t need any more purchases...
