Klaus Teuber (25 June 1952 – 1 April 2023) was a German board game designer best known as the creator of ''Catan''. Originally working as a dental technician, he began designing games first as a hobby then as a full-time career.

Four of his games won the prestigious Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) award: ''Barbarossa'' (1988), ''Adel Verpflichtet'' (1990), ''Drunter und Drüber'' (1991) and ''The Settlers of Catan'' (1995). The last of these sold over 40 million copies, was translated into 40 languages and spawned a family of expansions and versions. Teuber founded the games company Catan GmbH in 2002 and his sons now direct the family business.

Teuber was inducted into the Origin Awards Hall of Fame by the AAGAD (Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design) in 2004. In 2010, he received a special As d'Or in recognition of his lifetime achievement at the Festival International des Jeux in France. Provided by Wikipedia
