Asmodee Entertainment has announced a new partnership with Blok Party to bring “Catan” to their TapTop digital tabletop device in 2021.

“I started in the video game industry in 1984 and have watched ‘Catan’ take its place alongside the board game legends over the past 30 years,” says Gilman Louie, partner, Alsop Louie Partners, the lead investor in Blok Party. “‘Catan’ proves the value of having a social platform for board games, interacting with other players, making it easier to set up and play games, and allowing the game to merge digital and physical interactions through game play. This is a great partnership for both companies.”

Since its creation in 1995 by Klaus Teuber, “Catan” and its many expansions have sold more than 32 million games around the world. The game is published in more than 40 languages and is sold in more than 70 territories. “Catan” enjoys growing success in the digital, lifestyle and entertainment categories through Asmodee’s curated deals.

“‘Catan’ has long been one of the premier board games, so a partnership with the premier digital tabletop gaming platform is a natural fit,” says Christian Dunn, interactive licensing manager, Asmodee Entertainment. “Blok Party’s ambition matches our own and this deal is the first of several over the coming months as many great Asmodee titles will be coming to TapTop in 2021 and beyond.”

“Catan” arrives on TapTop devices in early 2021, with more details expected soon.
