Champions Jordan Matlovsky (second from left) and Evan Greenberg (far right) compete in the 2018 First NYC Catan National Qualifier Final.

There are preliminaries on Saturday and Sunday at 10am. Everyone will play 3 games.   This takes about 5 to 6 hours.  Each day, the players are ranked.  Rankings are decided first by wins, then by total score, and then by percentage of score at your table.  The top 8 players from each preliminary compete in the Semi Finals on Sunday at 5pm. The 16 players play one game (4 players at 4 tables.). The winners of each table immediately compete in one game to determine the NYC Champion. That winner earns a spot in the 2020 Catan United States Championship at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio in June along with a $300 stipend for travel/housing. The winner of that will compete in the World Championships! A portion of the entry fees will be donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Questions?  Email Eric Millegan at ksferic@gmail.com.
