Probably matching the price at Indigo as they are having a sale (25% off) on all games/puzzles (Thurs-Sun).

I paid $48.99 in 2016. It's a good deal.

Great if rage-inducing game. Cities and knights is a great expansion for it also.

What's so special about 5th edition compared to others?

5th Edition is not any better than previous editions, if anything it's slightly lower quality. The wooden pieces have lost much of their uniformity, they often have slight defects and imperfections. The cards seem to be less durable too; Comparing new ones that I've used less to my old set that was used for years is quite surprising.

Still a good price and a game worth owning. You're not likely to find earlier editions anyway. If you want a really quality set check out etsy.

If you check boardgameprices ( Link https://www.boardgameprices.com/prices/catan ; on rest of the world tab) the price of catan is $50.99 (I only look at 401/BGB pricing ON). Also, amazon is known for moving fakes made in china. This likely isnt't a fake since the seller is amazon and not third-party . Regardless, it's a bit misleading to say it's around $70 at regular price. You're really saving $2 but you get the convenience of free delivery.

This isn't a bad game and it was kind of the one that started the recent reinterest in board games but there are many better games to buy instead of this one as game design has evolved a lot since this came out.

Care to elaborate? Any favorites to suggest?

Be VERY careful buying Catan off of Amazon. I bought a copy and it turned out to be a fake/replica. I compared it to an original I had lying around, much cheaper feeling.

Ended up returning and buying it in store.

Did you purchase it directly from Amazon or a third party?

It was Prime shipping, shipped by Amazon. Sold by a third party.

If you look at the link in the OP, you can see people commenting that they got poor quality versions. I'd recommend price matching with Best Buy or anywhere in store.
