The father of modern board gaming on his final journey

Klaus Teuber, the creator of the popular board game Catan, has passed away on April 1, 2023 at the age of 70 due to a short and serious illness. Teuber had been actively working on new expansions and versions of Catan, which were set to be released later this year.

In a statement from Catan Studios, Teuber was described as a "legend in the board game industry," having designed one of the most well-known modern board game series in history. Teuber had also designed several other board games, such as Barbarossa in 1988 and Hoity Toity in 1990.

Catan, formerly known as Settlers of Catan, was first released in 1995 and quickly became one of the most popular board games of the last 30 years. The unexpected success of Catan led Teuber to quit his job as a dental technician in 1998 and turn the game into his family business. Teuber's contribution to the gaming industry is immeasurable, but his creation of Catan will undoubtedly be his greatest legacy.

Teuber was described by the Catan Studios team as a kind and great inspiration to others. They encourage people to remember him by being kind to one another, fearlessly pursuing their creative passions, and enjoying games with their loved ones.
