Behind the Hexes goes to the US to speak with the experienced Catan player EmeraldAngel about a variety of board games (and a peek inside the King of Catan engine room).
Behind the Hexes puts the spotlight on C&K again, and who would be a better choice than the “two times in a row KoC C&K champion” trissie89?
As you can see, trissie is an ancient and very successful player in the online Catan scene. He already won titles on many platforms. He is known as an eloquent and versatile player who knows how to get players to trade with him and knows any Catan mode by hard.
Behind the Hexes is back with Premier League veteran EBOX, who finally managed to win the title himself in Season 7. He is known and feared as a great analyst of the game we all love.
Let’s dive into the interview, where Eric will share the long lists we all expect from him as well as his usual place as a Settler.
For this installment of Behind the Hexes we chose to highlight Vrej. A longtime casual player who’s been competitive since 2019, he’s known around parts of the Catan community as “The Wizard” for his ability to sneak a win out of nowhere. He has a unique view of the game- and an unapologetic love for what is arguably the worst resource on the board.
Around 3700 games have been played by him already in this community. If you haven’t met him in a game it is probably because you only played once or twice here. By others he is known and appreciated as the biggest log who keeps the fire burning. Behind the Hexes presents you nekthen, the most active member of this community by far.
For this Behind the Hexes, we’re taking a look at one of the most successful players of the KoC history (especially in Cities and Knights). Raiyanar from the Catan pro player hub Toronto has been a centerpiece of this community by always being friendly- but is that real, or does she just want us to trade with her?
Brace yourself, Winters is coming and with him the first edition of Behind the Hexes. In this series we will introduce you to some faces in King of Catan and you will experience new unexpected insights of your favourite catan pro players that you wouldn’t have imagined.
