New Zealand National Catan Championships

Wellycon has the privilege of hosting the New Zealand National Catan Championships. 

Both the 2021 Championships and the 2022 Championships are sponsored by PixelPark

With both on the day prizes and the additional amazing prize of a ticket to the Catan World Championships with flights covered by PixelPark this is an opportunity not to be missed!
To enter the tournament purchase tickets for BOTH Saturday and Sunday at Wellycon and grab one of the limited seats available as an additional add-on. There is also a waiting list if the event is full.

We have had limited time to plan for the 2021 event and subsequently this event is smaller than we would have liked and we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure all goes smoothly for all. If you are not lucky enough to get a ticket to the 2021 event please stay tuned as the New Zealand 2022 Catan Championship is going to be much, much BIGGER! You can stay up-to-date by following us on facebook

As this is an international event there are certain rules to abide to and terms and conditions as follows: 

  • All entrants must be over 18. 
  • The prize of the flights are dependant upon world travel conditions, the prize is not exchangeable. If for any reason the event is cancelled, the ticket will be cancelled. There is NO alternative prize.
  • Accommodation and food whilst at the World Championship is expected to be funded by Catan
  • The winner of the New Zealand 2021 National Championship is not eligible to enter into the 2022 tournament. 
  • Qualifying rounds for 2022 tournaments can only be entered once per person. If you enter into a qualifying round and do not succeed to the semi-finals you can NOT re-enter into a different qualifying round. 
  • All entrants are expected to have read the Catan Tournament rules before attending the event and attend the preliminary meeting. 
  • All entrants are expected to inform the judges prior to the tournament if they are entering with family or friends - this is so we can fairly distribute people across the rounds. 
  • Judges decision is final. 
  • All entrants are to register on the app and use the app throughout the tournament. If a participant needs helps with this, please contact a judge. Further information on this will be sent to participants prior to the event.
