We've seen the venerable "wheat-and-brick-and-yelling board game" Settlers of Catan go gigantic and to the final frontier. Now — in a marvelous act of nerdiness — LEGO sculptor Ryan H. has built a playable Catan board out of little plastic rectangles. Explains Ryan, "I played this every night at Brickworld; I think every game I taught two people how to play." He also admits that he was roundly clobbered during every game, but he wins our plaudits and/or invisible ore cards simply for the effort.
