Premium Colonist Deck57 Cards Staff
As we have mentioned in the past, we are big fans of the game Settlers of Catan. However, being big fans of the game, but also being aware of how low quality the cards used for the board game are, we sought for a way to harness our ability to create long-lasting, quality decks of cards, while taking time to create a quality designed deck.
I know most of our fans and followers are used to us creating Rook-style cards. I do not know if any out there would be interested in a high quality replacement deck of catan cards. We are thinking to call them “Plastic Colonist Cards”.
At this point, we are only planning on making our own custom version of the resource cards. Brick, wood, ore, wheat, and sheep.
Our beginning designs look like the following.
If this is a topic that interests you, feel free to comment to let us know your thoughts on even pursuing this.
I would be interested. Official Catan replacement cards have been out of stock for a while.
We have a beautiful wooden Catan board from GameMason.com. After our purchase, I considered buying the matching Catan card set but the cost of shipping outside the U.S. is higher than the cost of the cards.
My advice would be to review all the Catan expansion games before embarking on this, and come up with a simple set of abstract icons you can use for all the cards. Also, consider using pictures only and leaving off the English words. There is a large international audience for Catan.
Love your Rook cards, by the way. We have bought two decks so far.
