United States 2023

How is the CATAN National Championship run in the United States?

Our United States tournament consists of local qualifying tournaments that take place year-round. The winners of each of the tournaments win a seat at the CATAN United States National Championship, which is normally held in June at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH. Players face off against all other winners of the Qualifier tournaments to become the year’s CATAN United States Champion.


Every two years we send our National Champions to the CATAN World Championship tournament. The 2023 United States Champion will compete in the 2024 World Championship, location and date TBD. The United States champion will also compete in the Americas tournament, a new event taking place in the off-years from the World Championship. We will share details for the 2023 Americas Tournament as soon as possible.
