Here’s a profile of Klaus Teuber, who left his unhappy life as a dental technician after creating the most famous and successful board game of recent decades.
Pete Fenlon, the C.E.O. of Mayfair Games, said, “Our volume of sales will be such that, over time, [Settlers of] Catan could, in terms of gross revenue, be the biggest game brand in the world.”
I’m a big fan of the game. I’ve bought it in 3 languages and I’ve also bought the iPad version.
