This is a 3d, magnetic game board designed to replace the cardboard game tiles of Settlers of Catan. It gained popularity due to a reddit post (https://redd.it/6gsq5k), so now by popular demand, the unpainted tiles are here for purchase! The pieces are all designed in Blender 3d and then 3d printed. Each piece can have 12 magnets on it which allow it to snap together so those pesky bumps of the board no longer ruin a game and the board can be picked up and moved around.
This listing is ONLY the 5 - 6 player expansion tiles! You will need the main game board to use the expansion, so please check out my other listing for that.
All tiles are UNPAINTED. This gives you the opportunity to be creative! The painted board pictures are examples of what you can do. You can follow my painting design or come up with your own. I will include some instruction to help you get started in adding magnets and tips for painting. (P.S. US Domestic Shipping is free!)
There are two options, one WITH magnets and one WITHOUT. The only difference is the version with magnets has 290+ magnets that can be glued into the tiles to allow the board to snap together for a strongly connected board. All pieces will have magnet holes on the sides in case you decide to add magnets later.
With every version you get 11 terrain tiles and 4 small border ocean tiles: Two (2) Fields (Grain Resource) Hexes. Two (2) Forest (Lumber Resource) Hexes. Two (2) Pasture (Wool Resource) Hexes. Two (2) Mountains (Ore Resource) Hexes. Two (2) Hills (Brick Resource) Hexes. One (1) Desert (No Resource) Hex. --This tile is stylized as a pun: the "Dessert" tile, a cherry pie--
The pictures of the unpainted tiles in white plastic are examples of what you can expect to receive. Due to how 3d printing works, there will be very small layers on each tile, but when the tiles are painted the ridges should not be noticeable . All pieces will have magnet holes on the sides in case you decide to add magnets later.
Looking for the STL files to print your own or the 5-6 player expansion? Check out the other listings in my shop! If you have any special requests, I am happy to work with you to create unique tiles just for you.

Note that this will not come with the paint or any other supplies, just the 3d printed tiles and magnets should you choose that option. This is only the expansion, and the main 3d board will be needed to play. Each piece is made with ABS plastic. Every piece is individually printed and may differ in color and texture. I do not have the 5 - 6 player expansion and cannot test print to ensure the small ocean tiles are as nice of a fit as the main tiles, but they are designed to the same measurements as the tiles.
Disclaimer: I am not at all associated with the Catan Studio. This is a fan-made board and still requires the purchase of the Settlers of Catan game for the tokens and other playing pieces.
