The Hunt For Australia’s CATAN Champion Has Begun

The hunt for Australia’s National CATAN Champion started last weekend with State Championship heats in SA at The Lost Dice, with finals to follow on 4 June. Additional State Championships will be held in QLD, NSW and VIC, with winners of each tournament vying for a seat in the Top 16 at the Australian CATAN National Championship held in Canberra on 6 August 2022. 

64 players at the National Championship will then compete for a place in the top four where a champion will be crowned to represent Australia at the CATAN World Championship in Malta in November 2022. First through fourth placements at the World Championships receive a trophy and assorted CATAN-themed merchandise. The Winner gets a stack of games (titles TBC) and a seat and trip to the next World Championships in 2024. Top 16 placements also receive upgraded game pieces!
