Settlers of Grey Islands

All spring I've been working on this little project called Settlers of Grey Islands. It started off as just a spare time fun activity, but has snowballed into being something more serious. It is a customized version of the popular board game Settlers of Catan, but based on the Grey Islands. I'm still working on it, and it should only take a couple weeks to finish up if I can get a solid block of time to finish it. Here are some progress photos:

The game tiles will be made from relief-carved coloured porcelain, while the cards use photos from the Grey Islands.
If you are familiar with Settlers of Catan, here is how the two games compare:

Robber = Polar Bear
Soldiers/Knights = Foxes
Roads/Settlements/Cities = Trails/Tents/Cabins

Meadows/Sheep = Heath/Caribou
Mountain/Stone = Mountain/Stone
Forest/Wood = Forest/Wood
Grassland/Wheat = Bog/Berries
Hills/Clay = Beach/Sand

If you are unfamiliar with Settlers of Catan you must go out and play it right now! It is really the most fun game.

  1. it really takes time to carve porcelain into a good sculpture. that hexagonal shape is easy but the top sculpture is a bit hard.
