I just launched a Kickstarter project for a completely modular Settlers of Catan game board. Please check it out and if you like it I would be incredibly grateful if you became a backer.

I'm also happy to answer any questions!

How do the harbors fit into the set up?

If we hit the $70K stretch-goal then there will be pieces which hold the harbors included, but otherwise you can set them around the board. Since it stays together so well it doesn't really become an issue.

Have you considered producing for other hex based games like Eclipse or Twilight Imperium. Unsure of their tile sizes ATM.

I'm not into Settlers of Catan, but this is a pretty cool project Tim. Good luck!

Cool!

Sort of pricey . . . but maybe because I don't play settlers much. I'd probably pay that much for something for a game I loved!

Seems so obvious . . . but I guess most cool inventions do in hindsight! Good work.

Absolutely! I have been getting a lot of requests to create these for other games as well. Most of the games have tiles which are slightly different sizes from each of the other games so there isn't really a one-size-fits-all solution (that doesn't look awful or cost a ton), but if this project is successful I want to branch out into these other games as well.

Thanks!

When I finally came up with this design I had to sit back and wonder why it took me so long to get to it, but then I realized that no one else had done it either.
