United States 2020


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.

This year (2020), Origins has been cancelled and we have made the difficult decision to cancel the United States CATAN National Championship as well. Qualified players should have received email communication from Organized Play regarding their status. Please check your email and if you have not received anything, contact Stephanie Newman, Organized Play Coordinator.

Every two years the Champions are sent to the CATAN World Championship tournament. The next CATAN World Championship will be located in Malta, taking place in November 2021. The United States champion will also compete in the Americas tournament, a new event taking place in the off-years from the World Championship.
