No release date has been announced, but you can register to get in on launch day on the official website. This week seemed as good as any to use Catan as our featured image.
Suburbia Collector’s Edition is on its way to store shelves next month. For $150 you can get the original game, every expansion, a new expansion, and game tray organizers. You can pre-order the edition now, and it’s due out later this month.
