You know what's great about cardboard? It decomposes and is susceptible to damage from just about anything. So companies decided to make board games from it so they don't last as long and you have to buy the same thing again and again... Or... you can stop spending money on things that won't last and upgrade to a solid wood game board that will outlast you; and hold up to spills, rowdy friends, drunk neighbors, and whatever else life tries to throw at it. All without coming apart from the all to often "bump" that has ruined many a game night.
All of our products are also hand crafted here in the USA, so you know they're not coming from forced labor camps (yes, those still exist).

The board is amazing. The detail of the tiles is beautiful. The colors are great. It's really something special. On the practical side the board is just as great. It fits together perfectly with no more wiggle room than the original game board. The tiles have inset holes that the numbers fit in to so they don't move around. The board has felt on the bottom so it doesn't move. It even comes with a special robber than can fit over the numbers so it doesn't slide around. This is exactly what I was hoping it to be when I ordered it, well thought out and beautiful.
I bought this less than a week ago as a Xmas gift for my sister and it has already arrived. I ordered it early expecting a wait as often happens with handcrafted items. The turn around was quick and the pieces are all beautifully decorated. I ordered an engraving for the board, the engraving is on one of the dessert pieces and it is clearly done. This is my sisters favorite game and I can’t wait to give this to her for the holidays.
Beautiful appearance and construction. Playing on it feels like you've taken your game to the next level.
I love the quality of this custom made wood board game. This is actually my second purchase which I am giving as a gift. I also purchased the custom box to hold the game and the dice roller. I absolutely love the work that Master Monk does. It is so fun to play with such a great piece of art.
I can’t say enough good things about this gaming board. This is by far the most beautiful custom made Catan board that I have come across. Nerds flock from across the room when setting up the game just to admire it, no joke! It’s one of my favorite possessions. The Master Monk Team have made an amazing product to go with their top notch craftsmanship and customer service.
