I have a version of Settlers of Catan that I can't seem to figure out. It is a family edition, but doesn't match anything I can find online. I recently bought an expansion for the 5-6 players, but the pieces were too big for my smaller pieces to be compatible. I'd like to get an expansion that matches mine, but can't find anything other than 5th editionsenter image description here

There is no expansion for the Family Edition.

From the Catan website:

This version of Catan is not expandable and not compatible with the regular expansions of the Catan base game!

You will need to get a regular edition (not family edition) of Catan to play with more than 4 players.

  • In my experience, Catan is more than a game, it's a game framework. Try exploring with what you have and see if it works out! Even if it doesn't work out it will be a cheap night of entertainment!

    @corsiKa The Family Edition removes a lot of that possibility though. The hexes are not each separate pieces to allow for trying other things; there really isn't any way that you can physically combine the pieces from the 5-6 player expansion to accommodate more players.
