This is a list of the Settlers of Catan t-shirts. The Settlers of Catan T-Shirts is a very popular board game that is often abbreviated as Catan. This was one of the first German-style board games to achieve popularity outside of Europe. As of 2015, more than 22 million copies in 30 languages had been sold. The game involves large amounts of strategy, while still being fairly simple to learn. The popularity of The Settlers of Catan led to the creation of spinoff games and products, starting in 1996 with The Settlers of Catan card game (now known as the Catan Card Game), and the 2003 novel, Die Siedler von Catan which was written by German author Rebecca Gablé, which tells the story of a group of Norse seafarers who set out in search of the mythical island of Catan.
